We’re almost a full week into October, which means we’re are almost a full week into arguably the greatest month of the year.
There’s a three day weekend that is centered around excessive eating. There’s pumpkin spice everything. There’s still hope for days that don’t involve a scarf and toque. There’s new shows on, like, all the time. There’s Halloween, Halloween costumes, Halloween candy, Halloween movies, and Halloween parties. And of course, there’s Drake.
Born of the 24 day of October, Aubrey Drake Graham stans for October like no other.
October’s Very Own child has made this month the one to covet out of all twelve months, an impressive feat when considering school is occurring and winter is coming.
Want to celebrate October like Drake? Here’s how to do it.
Spend Canadian Thanksgiving surrounded by your nearest and dearest woes.
Take a break from cheering on The Raptors to cheer on the Toronto Blue Jays.
YOSPLO. You Only Spiced Pumpkin Latte (in) October.
Watch the Halloween episodes of Degrassi.
After that, watch Black Christmas, Freddy Vs. Jason, American Psycho, Bride of Chucky, Orphan and the Saw films. They’re all horror movies that were filmed in Toronto.
Get an early start on holiday baking with OVO owl-inspired cookies.
Listen to PartyNextDoor, Majid Jordan, Roy Woods and all the artists that make up the roster for OVO Sound.
Take every opportunity to remind people what month it is.
Do a few extra reps at the gym so you can haz all teh candee.
Think of a Halloween costume for you and your boo (who is likely Serena Williams).
And finally, listen to Drake’s three albums and two mixtapes and count how many October and OVO references there are (hint: it’s a lot).
