October 2024 Calendar of Fun Workplace Holidays

2024 October National Holidays for the Workplace

October is the unofficial start of fall and the kick-off to the holiday season. With tons of fun Holidays, kicking off with World Smile Day and ends with a bang on October 31st on Halloween.

The October calendar has fun workplace holidays, but before you go in for work on October 2nd, celebrate National Pumpkin Spice Day on the 1st! Don't like pumpkin spice? It's also International Coffee Day on the 1st. There are a lot of office holidays such as, Improve your Office day on Wednesday October 4th! But you also have Thursday, October 19th to clean up your virtual desktop. All spaces can get cluttered and overwhelming - which is why we should not neglect our virtual ones. Improve productivity and efficiency with a clean desktop.

It may not be on a Tuesday this year, but Oct. 4 is still Taco Day, so having an office party to celebrate can go a long way for workers' morale. A week later, on Oct. 11, employers can recognize It's My Party Day and give workers a say in how they unwind on company time. Don't forget to celebrate your office staff with caramel apples on National Caramel Apple Day.

October is also a month full of holidays that honor the workplace heroes. Customer Service Week is October 2nd - 6th, and Bosses Day is October 16th. Also, Navy Day is October 27th and October 14th is National Emergency Nurse's Day.

Other October Holidays & National Days

National Walk and Bike to School Day

The first Wednesday in October is all about getting up and moving. That's why this day is known specifically as National Walk to School Day and for others, National Bike to School Day. The National Center for Safe Routes continues to work diligently to create safe passages for walkable communities. Walk and Bike to School day is not just about the kids, but for everyone to leave the keys in your pockets and get to stepping.

National Pharmacy Technician Day

Pharmacy Techs are vital members of our society and do more than simply count pills for our prescriptions. That is why on October 18th, we celebrate the men and women who support our hard-working Pharmacists on National Pharmacy Technician Day.

National American Beer Day

National American Beer Day is a celebration of all the American-made brews and is a time when we set aside all the imports we love for craft brews and American staples here at home. As of 2021, there are over 7,000 breweries producing beer in America. So this year, on October 27th, set aside the imported beer, and grab something made in America. Always remember to drink responsibly.

National Candy Corn Day

Love it or hate it, candy corn is an October staple. That's why it deserves its own holiday on October 30th as we recognize National Candy Corn Day. In 1889, Goelitz Candy Company popularized candy corn from the original iteration made by George Renninger of Wunderle Candy Company in a variety of colors and flavors. Not a fan of candy corn by itself? Try mixing it with salted nuts or pretzels, and you might change your mind.
