In October, we celebrate Thanksgiving here in Canada. And while we tend to be very warm, welcoming and accommodating here in the North, I think we all go just a little bit further during these cooler months. We pause, give thanks to friends and family but also to those in our community in need. Perhaps it has something to do with the cruelness of winters here that we feel the need to let the warmth come from within us.
Either way, autumn has to be one of my absolute favourite seasons. In fact, I was recently listening to the Ologies podcast with Alie Ward and she said she had a theory that everyone's favourite season is the one their birthday is in and perhaps that explains my family's obsession with Fall and Christmas. Majority of us were born October - December (sorry pops - no spring babies counted here). There are also so many fantastic quotes about this time of year that lend themselves to the magic of the season. I've included a few of my favourites here:
