Have you ever noticed that the official holidays and annual celebrations recognised around the world are being increasingly joined by dates of note, as referenced in popular movies, songs, and other modern cultural trends?

October 1st is one which keeps appearing on TikTok every year – bringing with it a whole new wave of confusion as users try to determine exactly what it means.

So, we thought we’d create this quick article on what October 1st refers to and where it comes from, so that you can understand the trend in full next time it comes around.

Where the October First Trend Comes From

All content which centres around October 1st uses the same song – Girl in Red’s “We fell in love in October”.

The main theme behind content shared on this date, using this song, is for those in relationships to pay homage to their love. Meanwhile, single people use the same song and the same underlying theme to share their desire for a love like that in October.

As far as trends go, the October 1st trend is harmless and a very touching way to pay tribute to your love by posting a video and the corresponding song showcasing your love.
