The Month of Erin
No, it’s not my birthday month, the Month of Erin is a silly tradition that I started in College to celebrate the peak of fall. I would (on the exact date of October 1st) get out my boots and put away my flip flops. I’d switch over the decor in my home and the wreath on my door, and I’d begin my preparations for Halloween.
It may have started because my actual birth month was always during the Christmas holiday and I never got to celebrate with friends from school, so I wanted something to celebrate that was mine. So, I choose October… the whole month. I love the foliage, that there is a coolness in the air, but still sunshine in the sky, and that things start to slow down. People begin to settle into school years and, of course, it’s football season.
This year, I’m kind of bummed out that I will miss half of the month, as I’ll be on a business trip to China for two weeks. I have to soak in every moment of October this week before I head off.
Do you have any silly seasonal traditions? What month would you choose for ‘your month’?
