October: The month of gags and folly

As we turn the calendar page, we also turn our attention back to 1978's Hayes Tips and Clues for Every Bulletin Board (first mentioned a couple of weeks ago). This is one of the suggested classroom bulletin-board displays for October.

Featuring a witch, a pumpkin and something that appears to be a black cat merged with a chipmunk, the bulletin board casts October as a month of "gags" and "folly." I reckon that's less disturbing for schoolchildren than dubbing October the month of "Ritual Sacrifice" and "Fires of Samhain."

Either way, October is here. The month for gorgeous foliage, chillier nights, apple cider, winds rustling in the trees, Indian corn, hayrides and pumpkin-spice everything.

And, of course, Halloween. If you're looking to settle into the October mood, here are some previous Papergreat series to check out:
