FALL HAS FALLEN

fall-2016Welcome, October.

Welcome.

Or make that Oktober…with a k.

If you’re speaking German.

Swedish.

Danish.

Norwegian.

Or Indonesian.

No matter how you say it, it’s here.

Good ol’ Autumn-leaves-falling-crisp-morning-air-October.

Welcome, Fall.

Worthy of capitalizing (though grammar authorities think differently).

No matter where, Fall’s the same.

Cooler.

Colorful.

Gateway to winter.

Octubre.

Ottobre.

Shi yue.

Yep, even in China.

Actually, October is incorrect now.

October comes from the Latin “octo” which means “eight.”

The Romans named the 8th month of their calendar “October.”

However, the ancient calendar began with March.

And now here we are beginning with January.

Making October numero 10.

Oh well.

So what.

Eighth or tenth…just so long as we got it.

October is also the name of ale the Brits brew…only in October.

Wherever you are, it’s a unique month all unto its own.

Oktobris in Greece.

Juugatsu in Japan.

Ekim in Turkey.

Lokakuu.

Wijnmaand.

Oktoba.

Outubro.

Wherever.

However.

Whatever.

Shops and businesses reflect the season.

Like Dr. Ruthven’s dental office.

And Commercial Bank.

Yep.

It’s beginning to look a lot like…

No…

Don’t say it.

Not Christmas!

Not yet!

That’s Mason.
