Daily Holidays October 26

National Mincemeat Pie Day Mincemeat can be a confusing term for those who are unfamiliar with it, and sometimes even confusing for those who are. Mincemeat is a mixture of diced fruit, meat, and distilled spirits that are often used as a pie filling, but even this term isnít always accurate. These days it isnít unusual to find mincemeat that doesnít contain meat, or contains beef suet rather than vegetable shortening. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/mincemeat-day/

Howl at The Moon Night You can keep things literal in your Howl at the Moon Day celebrations, and merely take a step outside and give the celestial orb in the sky a great big howling hello. You can get groups of friends together and head out to the forests and build a bonfire under a dark autumn night, and how to the crisp and clear skies overhead and the moon that hangs there like a giant eye watching over the world at large. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/howl-at-the-moon-day/

Pumpkin Day hereís one thing that represents October more than anything else, and itís not Halloween (though itís involved). That thing? The pumpkin. It starts appearing on shelves and farmers marketís stands on the last week or two of September, and is the herald that lets you know that Pumpkin Pies, Jack-o-Lanterns, and all the joys of fall are just around the corner. Pumpkin Day celebrates these noble squashís, and the history and tradition tied up in their iconic ornateness. https://www.daysoftheyear.com/days/pumpkin-day/
