Guy Fawkes Day

by Sharon Tucker

Although summer is a well-beloved season, August’s intense heat often prevails deep into September, as has been the case in 2013. In fact, as we reach mid-October here in Tennessee, leaves are still green and signs of autumn have scarcely begun. The heat, coupled with high humidity, has made for sticky days and short tempers. One longs for crisp fall weather–bright blue skies, cool days and cooler nights–and just enough rain to prolong brightly colored leaves on the trees. Surely by the end of October, our wishes will be granted and also, within two weeks’ time, we’ll have three holidays to celebrate–: Halloween, Samhain, and Guy Fawkes Day.
