Ang Buwan ng Oktubre
          Ang Oktubre o October ang ikasampung buwan sa Gregorian Calendar. Mapapansing ang salitang English na “October” ay halaw sa Latin na octo na ang ibig sabihin ay “walo.” Ito ay dahil sa sinaunang kalendaryong Romano, ito ang ikawalong buwan ng taon.
          Noong panahon ng Roman emperor na si Tiberius (42 B.C.-A.D. 37), tinangkang palitan ang pangalan ng buwan ng October na Livius (bilang parangal kay Livia, ang ina ng emperador) katulad ng pagpapalit sa Quintilis (na naging July bilang parangal kay Julius Caesar) at Sextilis (na naging August bilang parangal kay Augustus Caesar). Datapuwa’t tumanggi si Emperor Tiberius.
          Nang maging emperador si Domitian (A.D. 51-96), tinangka niyang ipangalan sa kaniya ang buwang ito subalit hindi naman ito nagtagal.
          Noong A.D. 183, muling tinangkang palitan ang tawag sa buwan na maging Hercules bilang parangal kay Emperor Commodus (A.D. 180-192) na tumatawag sa kaniyang sarili sa pangalang ito, subalit hindi ito naipatupad.
          Ang mga bulaklak ng buwan ng Oktubre ay calendula at cosmos. Ang opal at tourmaline naman ang mga birthstones.
          Ang bantog na Lansones Festival sa isla ng Camiguin ay ginaganap sa buwan ng Oktubre
