October Food Holidays

By: Nicolette Wagner

Before writing this blog post, October held no special place in my heart. It has always been just another month with a holiday at the end of it where I shamelessly dress up as another kitschy Wes Anderson movie character. To think, all these years, I’ve overlooked the food holiday pinnacle. Not only is October the national month of pizza, pasta, and pretzels, there’s even a national ‘kegger’ weekend hidden in there!

Check out the list below to see why October is the best excuse to eat all the snacks people usually make you feel guilty for!
