When it comes to special occasions, October has several traditional holidays, not-so-traditional holidays and off-the-wall events and celebrations. You will find holidays and special events to honor the special people in your life, notable dates in history, occasions and causes worth observing and just plain fun events to celebrate.

Which is why we are delighted to post our list of October Holidays.


In fact, at Eden Florist & Gift Baskets, we take these dates very seriously. Our goal is to help our customers recognize loved ones, and celebrate these holidays with flowers (or plants or balloons and other gifts).

In this post we highlight a few that our customers might appreciate learning about with the intention of acknowledging that special someone by sending flowers.

Enjoy learning about the holidays, events and celebrations for October:
