Hello October!

Say goodbye to September and say hello to October. September has been a good month to me; a lot of unexpected things happened and new discoveries. Last month I started this Hello Month concept here in my blog wherein I post a photo with a text Hello (insert current month) and a trivia about it. I find it interesting to read certain trivia about a month and I want to share it with all of you.

October is the tenth month of the year and has 31 days. It was originally the eighth month of the Roman calendar until 153 BCE.

October’s birth flower is the calendula.

The birthstone for October is the opal and it is said that the opal will crack if it is worn by someone who was not born in October.
