We…re Back! Do to our main radio host’s new work schedule, the Back to the Dark Ages segment is going to be a bit random for awhile. We are on for tomorrow night’s Halloween edition, where I plan on reviewing ways to stay warm and catching up on the topic of knitted and home-made infant clothing; something that got left because of time restraints on the last show.
I will probably also talk about about Halloween (originally an Irish holiday and still a legal one here) in terms of its place in the agricultural year and the importance of “the last harvest” in a traditional life style. If there is time, I’ll go into some of the traditions of feasting during October in general (the slaughter month in most of Europe) and how the turnip (later transformed into pumpkins) because the symbol of making it through the Winter months (hint, without them as regular crops, most animals could not be fed through the Winter).
Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow on the Preparing for the future show – I’ll be on the second hour (3 to 4pm EST/7 to 8pm Irish/UK time – we are off daylight savings already).
