That's right folks! The days are getting noticeably shorter, the nights are getting cooler and I Love it! I'm not too much of a hot summer day kind of person. Autumn is definitely my time of year. However, it does serve to remind me of the snow and bitter cold that we get around here in the Upper Midwest during the winter months. So I relish these few weeks of Autumn weather bliss that we get.
On the subject of weather, let me get very serious for a moment. Hurricane Irene is rumbling up the East Coast of the United States as I write this. We send our prayers and best wishes to our friends, family, and everyone else in the region that you stay safe and suffer the least possible damage from this monster storm.
This time of year brings all types of changes to many parts of the country courtesy of Mother Nature. As I mentioned, we really look forward to the cooler temperatures. Soon the leaves will be changing and falling and our thoughts will turn to the beginning of the Holidays. To some that means Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yep! Same here. But the kick off to our busy season starts with Halloween. Oh yes, the spooky time of year when the ghosts and goblins come out and the Pirates and Superheroes show up at your door in search of the goodies.
Trick or Treat, like all things, have changed from when we were kids. The costumes, the traditions, and even the treats are a different than from years past. When i was a kid we could have drawn a map complete with those little red pins that you see on maps all over the Web now. Of course the pins would indicate not the nearest Sushi joint or Starbuck's, but where the most prime treats could be had. I grew up in a small Midwestern town where everyone knew everyone. And we knew what treats everyone usually handed out on Halloween Night. That changed too. We actually had Trick or Treat at night. It's hard to be spooky and scary in broad daylight, but it is safer.
Here at O'Ryans Village we are getting pretty psyched about what we are rolling out this year for your Trick or Treaters. We have Old Time Halloween candy, some traditional stuff, and a bunch of new treats to greet the little devils with. Witches'Caldrons and Jack-O-Lanterns filled with candy for the long distance gift giving or for having around the house for your Halloween parties. Keep on the look out for our Halloween candy pages to magically appear anytime now at oryans.com.
Grab the rest of the Summer by the horns and have a good time. The Unofficial end of summer is Labor Day, that's next weekend, Don't let the remainder of the season slip away. Autumn will be here before you know it. Then it's time for a road trip. Door County here we come!
Thanks for reading and have a sweet day!
