October Journal Prompts ~ Wk #3

According to Wikipedia, October is the tenth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and one of seven months with a length of 31 days. The eighth month in the old Roman calendar, October retained its name (from the Latin "octo" meaning "eight") after January and February were inserted into the calendar that had originally been created by the Romans.

October is commonly associated with the season of autumn in the Northern hemisphere and spring in the Southern hemisphere, where it is the seasonal equivalent to April in the Northern hemisphere and vice versa.
In common years January starts on the same day of the week as October, but no other month starts on the same day of the week as October in leap years. October ends on the same day of the week as February every year and January in common years only.

The birth stone for October is the opal. The calendula flower for the month of October. Calendulas bloom at the beginning of each month and calendula means "throughout the months." Gardeners use this flower as an insect repellent. Cook dry calendulas and use as a spice, and has been referred to as ‘pot marigold’ due to cooking pots, not the flowerpot. It is believed that headaches, toothaches, fevers and cramps can be eased with the calendula spice. It has also been made into a skin ointment to relieve insect bites, sore eyes and various other wounds. Calendula’s range from gold to bright orange.
