Halloween, celebrated each year on October 31 (this year on a Wednesday), is a mix of ancient Celtic practices, Catholic and Roman religious rituals and European folk traditions that blended together over time to create the holiday we know today with trick-or-treating, attending costume parties, carving jack-o’-lanterns, haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching
horror movies.. Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity and life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition.

Happy Columbus Day which is celebrated today, October 8, 2012!  As you read this, there’s a high chance that you’re at work today. It’s a holiday for most of the U.S. federal government, several U.S. states as well as banks and post offices. However, for most of us in the private business world, it’s a regular work day. According to survey data, approximately 16% of U.S. businesses observe Columbus Day as a paid holiday. Thus, most of us observe it as a light traffic day to and from work along with the fact that the bank is closed and no mail that day.

The autumnal equinox arrived on Saturday, September 22, 2012, marking the official arrival of fall when the sun is positioned directly over the equator of our tilted Earth. The autumnal equinox, or fall/autumn equinox, is one of two times during the year when the length of day and the length of night are just about equal. From this point forward through the start of winter
in later December, each day will get shorter in the northern hemisphere.
