October 2011 Calendar shot

October - The colorful month. And here she comes.

As usual am welcoming the month with a calendar shot. The month of festivals, puja, sweets, celebrations, joy and happiness is here.


I name this click as " Kiss of Rocks"

Intersting facts of OCTOBER that are new to me :

* October is Adopt-A-Shelter Dog Month



* HALLOWEEN is celebrated on the last night of October in USA, with children dressing up in masks and costumes, going door to door, asking for a treat.



* THANKSGIVING DAY is celebrated in Canada on the second Monday of the month.



* In merry old England during olden times the month of October was once named “Winmonth”, which meant wine month.




Anything to add??

Ashwini,

Read all pending posts. My being late is due to what I said in Age Catching Up in my space, if you read that. Your story narrating skills are good as I can see in Love is with you. Little more details at places will do wonders. Thanks for information on September, which happens to be my birth month and good photograph. Beautiful poem, Reality, showing that joy of giving is still there in some persons. Had a good laugh on reading Gist of Kannada poem. Mutual trust is a founding step in relationship. So in Him & Her you have shown that they both had it but one slip up made him so repentant and she could gauge it forgiving his one mistake. Good narration again. Hope to read more stories from you, may be as a collection published in book form some day. Yes, Looks can be so deceptive, specially these days of high fashion. A Simple Prayer shows deep desire to be with someone, composed so nicely. Good calender of October and thanks for information.

Take care
