Went to Vermont to see the autumn color. A friend from Texas rented a car and drove. Off to Vermont on October 3,,1. Wonderful color and an opportunity to visit dear cousins and two of my eight siblings that still live there. Had a great time which included visiting family cemeteries and a few lunches.
October is a family month for many. Enjoying each others company. At home families and children are raking, harvesting and getting ready for winter. In other places they are leaving winter and enjoying spring but family connections remain the same.
I always enjoy seeing what Wikipedia has to say about a particular month's celebrations. In October there are many celebrations for both Shi'a (Islam) and Judaism. But on October 24 there is celebration called Poya for Buddhists. October 26th is Abra'heem for all of the the Islamic faith. October is the Holy Rosary Month for Roman Catholics. It is also the month of Breast Cancer Awareness, Heath Literacy and Dental Hygiene. In America we celebrate Arts and Humanities and Italian and Polish culture.
For Maine Families Network our colors for October are brown, orange and yellow. Our symbol is the rake. The values celebrated-cooperation, thankfulness and volunteerism.
There is a lot for families to celebrate in October, values to share and memories to make. Enjoy this October you will never have it again....10 October, 2018
