More October holidays

We’ve just had the holiday triple play — Hangul Day, Columbus Day (U.S.) / Thanksgiving (Canada), National Coming Out Day, on successive days — and next up is Dictionary Day, October 16th, celebrated on Noah Webster’s birthday. Words running amok in the streets!

Break out those American dictionaries! In particular, NOAD, the New Oxford American Dictionary (3rd ed., out a year ago), and AHD, the American Heritage Dictionary (5th ed., officially released on November 1st).

Though purveyors of porn celebrate holidays of all sorts with sales of their wares (most recently, Thugmart celebrating Columbus Day, on AZBlogX, here), I suspect that they’ll give Dictionary Day a pass.
