Prime Time: 'Soxtober,' or October, is a memorable month

Email

Soxtober.

That was what we called this month in our family when I was growing up. My stepdad's much-younger sister was my age. She had called it Soxtober, which was probably a mixture of her childhood mispro-nunciation of her birthday on the 6th of October. I suspect she will laugh when I tell her I still think of it that way every year, but I'll bet she does, too, and may even have passed it on to her kids and grandkids.
