In the old Roman calendars, October was the eight month of the year and got its name from ‘Octo’ meaning eight. The Saxons called it Wyn Monath because it was the season of wine making. Despite some lovely sunny days during September, I am sure you will agree that now there is a distinct chill in the air first thing in the morning. I think we can safely say Autumn is definitely here and the nights are already drawing in, despite the fact that the clocks are not due to go back until later this month? On Thursday 31st October it is “Punky Night”!! In Somerset, in the middle ages, all the men of Hinto St George went off to a fair. When they failed to return that evening, the women went looking for them by the light of punkies which is another name for a pumpkin which has been hollowed out and has a candle standing in it. Nowadays on Punky Night, or Halloween as it is more commonly called, children go from house to house in fancy dress, knocking on doors and shouting trick or treat. Thank goodness most of them prefer a treat. Don’t forget that on Saturday 30th October British Summertime ends and all clocks needs to go back one hour. You’ll notice that whilst mornings are brighter, the afternoons will get darker. The good news is we get one hour’s extra sleep. I’m sure this will please everyone.
