Why October is the Best Month

When you think of your favourite month, what comes to mind? April – usually gets Easter, which means a 4-day weekend? How about August – the height of summer, the hottest month, and also with a Bank Holiday which makes for the best BBQs and Notting Hill Carnival? Or maybe you think of December – time off for Christmas, the chance of snow, and spending time relaxing? Chances are, October isn’t your first choice. But at Monroe, we think October is actually the best month. Here’s why.


October isn’t famous for its weather. After summer leaves in September, it takes with it hot days and long nights. But October weather can be great in its own right! Autumn sun, fresh mornings, and all the colourful leaves sat on the floor – it’s perfect.


Halloween marks the start of the party season. After it, comes Bonfire Night, and then you’re on the home stretch to Christmas. Anyone who says Halloween is just for kids is just denying themselves the fun! Fancy dress, parties, and lots of booze – what’s not to love.


Tennis season is officially over – but Football season is properly starting! Many of the Champions Leagues key games take place in October, making it a great month for sport. October also sees the 2018 World Cup Qualifying games take place, as well as the Rugby League, American Football and Formula 1. Of course, once October is over it’s just over one month til the World Darts Champion starts – the ultimate highlight of any sport’s fans Christmas.


Oktoberfest is a beer festival and travelling funfair that takes place in October in Germany every year. It’s a great opportunity to get dressed up and swig beer with your mates – but if you don’t fancy flying to Munich, there are plenty of Oktoberfest style events in London and the rest of the UK.

Staying In

Summer is great for BBQs, outdoor parties and hanging out in beer gardens. But now Autumn is here, you finally have a reason to kick back and relax in your house. It’s the perfect excuse if you just can’t be bothered to go out…

Happy October!
