We made many free printable calendars for October 2016 with variety of themes, with Halloween as a major 'holiday' being the most represented of all. October as you already know, got the name from Latin word octo, meaning eight, because initially this was the eighth month in the calendar.
But did you know about the St. Luke tradition, which comes on October 18th? On this day a girl traditionally rubs her face with a mixture of vinegar, honey and spices before sleep to get a chance to see her future husband in her dreams!
Of course this is connected with magic words: "Saint Luke, Saint Luke, be kind to me, in dreams let me my true love see!"
October is full of more or less amazing events and we tried to prepare a monthly calendar with appropriate themes, all free for your personal use, all ready to print in several handy formats.
October 2016 Calendar
This autumn month is connected with all kinds of fruits (growing season just ended, remember?), so it is abundant with food, but we also know the winter is coming and we should be frugal (it is a month of saving too!). With this in mind we tried to balance both sides - what is actually perfectly presented through Halloween holiday.
Carved pumpkins presented on these calendars, which are completely free for your personal use, are pretty good spirited, but initial idea is to make them as scary as possible. The reason was simple: they should scare away all mean spirited ghosts who are wondering around on October 31th.
Nowadays a pumpkin is more used as a symbol of abundance and optimistic beginning of the winter, having storages loaded with all kinds of fruits.
Isn't it amazing to see the transformation of these peaceful fruit-veggies to impressive Jack-o-Lanterns? Pumpkins are very popular in the kitchen too and they also have their own 'holidays'. So we made more calendars with pumpkins:)
October can be a beautiful month although it is often very rainy. But after the rain the sun will always shine again and autumn often presents spectacular views on colorful leaves. Several travel agencies actually offer guided views on maple tree woods with unbelievable outlook on thousands of shades of yellow, red and everything between.
This beautiful Halloween themed invitation is a sure winner among at kids and every addressee will feel honored receiving it. You can order it by simple click on the picture.
Monthly Calendars With Nature Themes for October 2016
If we are lucky, in October we can admire the autumn in full beauty as presented on next printable monthly calendars. But there is a saying: warm October leads to cold February.
In the old times when we felt more connected with nature, many observations originated, some of them can be backed with scientific explanations but most are only interesting tidbits. There is, for example a saying: If October is rainy, the month of December will be windy.
And another: If birds and animals gain a lot of fat till October, expect cold winter. And more: If autumn is rich with berries, the winter will be hard.
