Federal Holidays Calendar
The single federal holiday celebrated in October is the one that started it all! See more here:
- October 8: Columbus Day. This holiday is a United States federal holiday that commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492. It falls every year on the second Monday of October and also happens to share that date with Thanksgiving in Canada. Due to its history of colonial takeover, the holiday has become increasingly controversial in recent years, with some states opting instead to celebrate Native American Day or Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
Unique Holidays Calendar
October marks the passage of two fun and unique holidays celebrating some of the things we love the most!
- October 1: International Coffee Day. Coffee is a beloved drink the world over, and this day celebrates just that! This holiday also helps to bring awareness to coffee growers working in unfair or unsustainable conditions.
- October 4: Taco Day. Originally the go-to meal of Mexico, tacos have gained tremendous popularity in recent years. Usually made from corn or wheat, a tortilla is stuffed with beef, chicken, vegetables, or anything else and served with accompaniments. Eat a taco on this day to celebrate properly!
Catholic Holidays Calendar
There are no recognized Catholic holidays in October, but Catholics can look forward to All Saints Day in November.
Jewish Holidays Calendar
- October 1: Shemini Atzeret. The Eighth Day of Assembly technically begins at sundown the day before. However, it is celebrated for most of October 1. It directly follows the Jewish festival of Sukkot, which is celebrated for seven days (Shemini is literally the eighth day). It is a holy day devoted to the spiritual aspects of the festival that proceeds it.
- October 2: Simchat Torah. Also known as the Day of Celebrating the Torah, this holiday marks the conclusion of Shemini Atzeret and the Sukkot. It is celebrated with Torah readings and begins a new cycle for the Jews.

Mormon Holidays Calendar
There is one unofficial–but almost universally observed–Mormon holiday in October.
- October 31: Halloween. What once used to be a pagan holiday also knowns as All Hallow’s Eve, this holiday is usually celebrated by Mormon families as it has now lost most of its pagan undertones. Children dress up and go trick-or-treating and parties are often held for the youth or the entire ward.
Muslim Holidays Calendar
The single holiday celebrated by Muslims in October involves a special pilgrimage:
- October 30: Arba’een. Arba’een is observed by Shia Muslims and involves a pilgrimage to the city of Karbala in Iraq, one of the largest pilgrimages in the world. Arba’een (or forty days) is the usual length of mourning after the death of a family member or loved one, and commemorates the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of Muhammad, who was killed on the 10th day of the month of Muharram.
Protestant Holidays Calendar
Protestants celebrate a significant event every year at the end of October. It is explained below:
- October 31: Reformation Day. Protestants celebrate Reformation Day to commemorate Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the church door, thus sparking the the reformation and break away of Protestants from what became the Roman Catholic Church. Today, Luther is honored as a hero who helped to lift the burden of people oppressed by the church.
