Did you know...?

October always had 31 days, and it was originally the eighth month in the Roman Calendar but because the Roman Calendar was not reflective of the true length of a year on Earth, The Gregorian Calendar was created. The Gregorian Calendar added the months of January and February at the beginning of the year so, while it is named ‘October’ after the Latin numeral ‘Octo’, meaning eight, it is now known as the tenth month in the calendars we use every day.

• Daylight Savings Time ends every year at 2am on the last Sunday of October.

• The Beatles' first single, Love Me Do backed with P.S. I Love You, was released.
