Today is Octo XXXI, or in English, October 31.
The month octo comes from the Roman numeral eight. October used to be the eigth month of the calendar year. January and February were added later, ca. 700 BCE by King Numa Pompilius, so the months would better align with the seasons. Something I never knew before!

My Silks Acrylic Glaze (also by Luminarte) just arrived yesterday, so I know what I'm doing this weekend!
What other words begin with the Letter X?
