Can someone please tell me where September went. We're now into October...or The Fast Track to the Holidays...Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves...here are a few things to look forward to in October . . .

1.  Candy.  Start stocking up for Halloween early, so you can eat half of it YOURSELF this month.  And it's also time to start the hunt for costumes .

2.  Some big new films hit this month:  The new "Joker" movie opens nationwide this Friday . . . the "Breaking Bad" sequel "El Camino" hits Netflix on October 11th . . . and "Zombieland: Double Tap" lands October 18th.

3.   Halloween is the big deal this month.

4.   Christmas Movies. Some cable channels start their holiday movies this month.

But here are few more holidays to mark on your calendar . . .

National Taco Day and National Vodka Day are both this Friday  . . . Yom Kippur starts October 8th . . . Columbus Day is October 14th . . . Sweetest Day is October 19th . . . and yes, this is real:  Wednesday, October 23rd is "Slap Your Annoying Coworker Day."
