Sept 19 : 03 days to Fall

Did you know that Autumn’s association with the harvest is rooted in a number of world religions?

The autumn Jewish holiday of Sukkot, for example, has its roots in the full moon harvest; native American tribes have a number of festivals associated with the harvest; and in China, there is a mid-autumn Moon Festival.

Even the secular American holiday of Thanksgiving is an autumnal celebration, which originally marked the conclusion of the harvest and the preparation for winter’s imminent arrival.

Do you feel that? The crisp morning air is a sure sign that the Fall season is right around the corner. As the days get shorter and the temperatures fall, Autumn heralds its coming with fiery red leaves and bright orange pumpkins.
