By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

What is your favourite holiday tradition?

No matter which country you are from, you are sure to have your own traditions, but which is your favourite one?

For me, I enjoy singing carols around the Christmas tree with my family.

What about you? If you could pick one tradition from one holiday as your favourite, what would it be?

    In Nepal there is a very nice festival in the autumn called Tihar. This is when brothers and sisters honour eachother with gifts and tikka on the forehead as a mark of respect.

    That sounds lovely. I think the relationship between brothers and sisters is so important, and is rarely honoured in the UK!
