Seasonal traditions–I hope to make this Halloween blog hop a new tradition. An old one I like to do every year is give out candy. I would say making homemade pumpkin cake in October is a new autumn tradition, invented since my husband the gardener knows how to grow enough awesome pumpkins to outpace the hungry squirrels in our yard.  I want to bake and cook with pumpkin every fall now. It’s really fun. I am going to have a pumpkin cooking theme in this month’s newsletter.

Do you have any seasonal routines or traditions that you enjoy?

  1. I use to take my kids tricker treating until they to old to go with mom. Now I have 13 month old granddaughter that I get to go with this year. Yeah.

    1. Oh that sounds great, Brittany. I was lucky to be in Vermont this year in September and went to an orchard. It was so fun. Thank you, happy Halloween to you, too, and best of luck!

  2. Last year, I started baking pumpkin cookies; that’s our new tradition, I suppose. None of us like pumpkin pie, but we all liked the pumpkin cookies, so I’m going to continue making those and also experiment with a few other pumpkin recipes I’ve found. My children think I should start the holiday baking in October. I might do that. Traditions are important. 🙂


    1. Thank you, Michelle! I plan to put a couple pumpkin recipes in my October newsletter, which comes out tomorrow. Would love any links you’re willing to share!

      That’s great to hear. I am only at this ripe age learning how important traditions are. I’m enjoying creating new ones, appreciating those I already have, and learning about the traditions of others. Thanks for sharing yours. Happy Friday!


  3. Not really. I look forward to fall for the Pumpkin Spice everything, but it’s not really a tradition.
