The question of the day is: When is it fall?
Has the calendar passed the Harvest Moon? That was two weeks ago. Is it when the nights get cooler and the days start to feel shorter? That seemed to start just after Labor Day.
Is it when you start seeing Halloween items in the stores and markets? They had them out in June. Are the kids back at school? Whew, that seemed like it took forever, and every school seemed to have a different start date.
How about when you see the first pumpkin on a neighbor’s front porch? We grew ours ourselves, and they have been out for a week. Maybe it is when you can light the first fire in your fireplace, or when it doesn’t feel too hot to light a candle in the house.
For some people it is the change of the clock to Daylight Saving Time, but that doesn’t happen until Nov. 6.
Fall is such a wonderful time of the year. It is the end of another summer spent at beaches and in the mountains, traveling with family or to see friends and family, discovering new places and visiting old ones.
The autumnal equinox has come and gone. Pretty soon we will be carving pumpkins and then turkeys!
