So, welcome to the weirdest day of the year. Next year, it will be November 11th, 2011, and the year after: Dec 12, 2012, and then we won't have MM/DD/YY line up again until 2101
How cool is that?
Anyway some fun facts about October this year:
October 2010:This October has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays, all in 1 month. It happens once in 823 years.
