September/October Spirit Days
September 11 -wear red, white, and blue
On September 11, Patriot Day gives all of us time to reflect on the devastating terror attacks that took nearly 3,000 lives. We commemorate those who we lost and give thanks to the brave first responders who put their lives on the line. Take a moment today to consider what we stand for as a nation and how we can work together to make the world a better place for all.
September 18 - wear orange and blue

September 25 - wear RED
Johnny Appleseed Day
When confronted with the legend of Johnny Appleseed, most people are surprised to discover that this American legend was a living, breathing, historical human being! It’s true. Far from being simply the stuff of folklore and folk tales, Appleseed (real name: John Chapman) was an American nurseryman who introduced apple trees to the Midwest, including Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. He was also a conservationist and missionary during the earliest days of the United States. Yet, despite his living, breathing status, Appleseed was, indeed, a living legend. Johnny Appleseed Day on September 26 is celebrated in his honor.
October 2 - wear bright colors to make them smile
National Custodian Day
They work while we sleep. Sometimes we walk around them in the halls not always “seeing” them or their work as important. That’s why we love this day, National Custodian Day, which rolls around every October 2. It recognizes the hard work that it takes to keep our public facilities in tip-top shape as well as the people who diligently work to make sure we have schools and workplaces that are spotless and sanitary. Custodians are our first line of defense of the war on germs and often, it’s a thankless task. So, on National Custodian Day, show your appreciation to the custodians who clean the office buildings or schools that you frequent. As far as we’re concerned, custodians are the hardest-working people in show business!
October 12 - wear blue
Columbus Day is an American holiday. It celebrates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas on October 12, 1492. The holiday used to be celebrated every October 12, but that was changed in 1971. Columbus Day is now celebrated every year on the second Monday in October.
October 30 - wear orange and black
Halloween on October 31 is undoubtedly the creepiest, most ghostly holiday of them all. Children dress up as Batman, Mario, Wonder Woman, or some other favorite character; go to parties or walk their neighborhoods with jack o’ lanterns full of sweets as they go trick-or-treating.
