Peace family, with today as the first official day of fall, it’s time for a wonderful new season, full of wonderful new things!
What are you celebrating today? What are your favorite fall traditions?
One friend of mine calls this “Baking Season” and her husband calls it “Pie Season.” Many people affectionately call it Football Season, and the Native Americans called this time of year the Full Corn Moon or Barley Moon, because that’s what they harvested. Many people enjoy that it’s time for “Pumpkin Spice Everything,” and wearing boots, while my mom grew up farther north, and always loved raking the leaves and jumping in them. I like to think of fall as the time of year when the air gets cooler and crisper and there’s a special, dreamy scent in it, the scarves and socks are soft and warm, and the nights are darker while the stars shine brighter. It’s the perfect time for making soups and stews and spending evenings with good friends drinking hot cocoa around a bonfire. Meanwhile, for the Jews, it’s almost time for a new year. Rosh Hashana, a time for repentance, forgiveness and obedience, will kick off on Thursday, as the year 5775. Cool, huh?
However you best enjoy this fresh, new season, here’s a wish from all of us at Peace 107 that it will be blessed and glorious!
