Candy Corn and Nine Other #ReasonsILoveOctober

Fall is my favorite season, October is my favorite month and a lot of my favorite things take place during this time. So, I figured in honor of my season/month of favs, I would post a list of #ReasonsILoveOctober:

1. Fashion: sweaters, down vests, scarves, thermal henleys and boots.

2. The cider mill and pumpkin patch.

3. Apple cider and cinnamon-sugar donuts.

4. Gorgeously colored landscapes.

5. The NHL and most other hockey leagues begin regular season play.

6. Monster cereals; Boo Berry is my favorite.

7. Great television programming (13 Nights of Halloween, horror movies on Syfy, 90's Halloween Disney Channel movies).

8. Last year, my October concert of choice was the Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson Twins of Evil Tour. This year, my concert of choice is my fav band, Avenged Sevenfold's, Hail to the King Tour for their latest album of the same name.

9. Halloween. I like to revive my childhood through my costumes. For Halloween 2011 I was Scar from The Lion King. My fallback costume is always Slash from Guns n' Roses--all I need is a top hat!

10. And of course, candy corn! It has to be Brach's. Brach's is the best.

11. Bonus! October is your last chance (and usually the perfect weather) for bonfires. Nothing better than sitting around a fire, drinking (spiked!) cider with friends.

What reasons do you love October? Tell us!

Rock out, kiddies!
