Fantastical Austen – Happy Nutcrack Day — 4 Comments

  1. Thanks Katie, Marilyn. It’s funny but in UK we always think of Halloween as an American Holiday, but it seems it started in Scotland and Ireland, migrated over to the States and now has come back in the form of ghosts and trick or treating.

  2. This actually sounds like a charming, harvest-y kind of tradition that is in keeping with autumn. Where I am, in Northern California, we don’t get that dramatic a change in the weather, and certainly not as many leaves changing, and I don’t certainly think about harvest-time or autumn all that much. It’s an interesting observation that Jane Austen might not have celebrated such holidays – they seem like gentle traditions that I wouldn’t have imagined would have been seen as contradictory with the church.
