    The smell and the color. Nice chilly yet sunny days. Apple orchards and playing in the leaves. And carving pumpkins.

    Oh, was I supposed to only say one thing??? I can’t. I LOVE October.

    Oh, my goodness. So many things. I love October – it’s when we chose to get married. Not too hot, not too cold. Crisp air. Harvest moons, golden leaves, campfires, wrapping up in blankets and sipping hot chocolate or cider. Pumpkins and cornstalks decorating porches. Little ghosts and goblins running around. Acorn squash cooking in cinnamon, brown sugar and butter. Beef stew or chili, simmering all day in the crock pot while you’re outside getting the place settled down for winter.

    We also got married in October. Twice!!!

    Too many things! My one favorite thing, I think would have to be the change of the seasons – aspects of which many have mentioned above. We also have various October birthdays and such. My parents’ anniversary is in October. I’m not a huge fan of Halloween, but even without Halloween, things are so spooky somehow. October rocks.

    Who used to play “Ghost in the Graveyard” in October as a kid? Have you taught it to your kids?

    • Joy says:

      No. What is it?

        Well, it’s kind of like a spooky version of hide-and-go-seek + tag. Now that you ask me to describe it, I find I am not sure of some details. But here are some of the basics:

        It’s played outdoors at dusk/dark. The kids choose a home base called “ghoul” and one kid counts while the others hide. The counting goes: “one o’clock, two o’clock . . . .12 O’CLOCK MIDNIGHT!” Then the seeking begins. Now my memory fails me as to who’s the ghost, but I’m going to say it’s the hiders. Whenever the seeker spots someone, he hollers “ghost in the graveyard” and then chases the ghost until the ghost is either tagged or reaches “ghoul.” If he gets tagged, he has to be the next seeker. If he reaches ghoul and hollers “on ghoul” before being tagged, then the seeker keeps looking for other ghosts and does the whole thing again, until the parents make everyone come inside.

    The cooler weather, the changing leaves, the excitement and anticipation of the holidays

    No one else followed the rules, so neither will I. I can’t just pick one. I love carving pumpkins, hayrides, haunted houses, apple donuts, getting the kids together for trick or treating….seeing the different costumes. I love this time of year….all except that October means, it will be cold very soon.

    I like the changing leaves, the crispness in the air (but I hate when it gets cold!), the pumpkins, the apple orchard, the routine everyone is back in, pulling out my sweaters from the drawers, smelling squash bake in the oven, being able to use the oven again with dying of heat, and lots of other things!
