History of the month of October
The history of the month dates back to the history of the Roman Empire. To understand it widely, we should have a look at the history of October. The Roman Republic became the Roman Empire in 27 BC when Julius Caesar's adopted son, known as Augustus, took control of Rome. Augustus created an autocratic form of government in which he was the sole ruler and made all important decisions. Although we called him the first emperor of Rome, Augustus or his rulers did not call themselves king or emperor. They called themselves "princeps", the first citizen, or primus inter pares, the first among equals. The election of this title maintained the impression that the power was limited, which was very important in the Republican period.
Augustus did not expand the territory of Rome during his rule. When it came to power, Rome had a dominance close to the period when it reached its widest borders. But many reforms by Augustus and his successors had a profound and lasting impact on the economic structure and domestic policy of Rome. Pax Romana— “Roman peace” - the period between 27 BC and 180 AD, when the rule of Rome was generally stable and wars were less experienced. There were conflicts such as regional rebellions and wars at the borders of Roman domination — but the empire did not experience events such as civil wars that spanned most of the 1st century BC. The Emperors and the Senate took control of most of the elections, and they chose whomever they wanted to take on. For this reason, there was less elected political authority to discuss.

Important Days for October 2020
Of course, October is an important month with some special days. We'll continue with the two most important of them. The first one is World Animal Day (October 4) and the second one is Columbus Day (October 12). The animal protection day, which was adopted in Florence in 1931 to protect animals and raise awareness, is celebrated every year on October 4. People who want to protect animal rights came together in England in 1822 to establish the first animal protection association. The Association for the Protection of Animals in our country was founded in 1908. For the same purpose, associations united to form the World Animal Protection Federation in The Hague, the capital of the Netherlands. This organization gathered in Florence in 1931 and declared October 4, the Day of the Protection of Animals, to draw attention to the species of animals threatened with extinction in the world. The purpose of this day; to understand that there are creatures other than humans in the universe, not to interfere with their living spaces, to respect their right to life. To behave compassionately to the pets, to protect and watch them, to feed in good conditions, to raise awareness about the sensitive behavior.
On the other hand, Columbus Day, which will be celebrated on October 12 in 2020, is the day of discovering America continent by Christopher Columbus in 1492. In the United States, the second Monday of October is celebrated as Columbus Day to commemorate Christopher Columbus, who discovered America in 1492. Christopher Columbus landed on October 12, 1492 on one of the Caribbean islands. Columbus, who thought he had reached India, thought that the Indians he had met on the island were ‘Indian” and called them “Indian". That is why the word "indian" is used in American English instead of "native". The first Columbus Day celebration took place in New York in 1792, the 300th anniversary of Columbus' discovery of America. In 1892, the 400th year, US President Benjamin Harrison invited all Americans to celebrate Columbus Day.
The Columbus Day celebrations were initially celebrated by Italian Americans as a cultural day. With the efforts of Italian immigrants who came to work in the mines in Colorado, Colorado became the first state in 1905 to declare Columbus Day a nationwide holiday. In 1937, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared it's a federal holiday and called for a national celebration. Since 1971, every second Monday of October is celebrated as Columbus Day.
