Anne of Green Gables said, "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." So are we, Anne.

October has a different feel to it: crisp air, colorful foliage, pumpkins, festivals, and the list goes on. It also has a spooky edge to it as well, and there are several haunted walking tours across the region that tell of the paranormal activity in north Alabama.
