Summer - gone! September - gone! October - gone! Here we are in November and the elections are over! Happiness for some, disappointment for others but hopefully the future holds ambitions for all based upon American values.
With most of the year behind us already comes a definitive look ahead to Thanksgiving and Christmas. Whoa! Not even ready to go there yet! So, before jumping ahead too quickly let's step back to events of fall that strike at our heartstrings with probably the absolute fondest memories of childhood. What could that possibly be—changing of colours?, falling leaves?, crispness to the air as chilling temperatures replace triple digits?, walks in the afternoon warranting a light sweater?, sips of hot cocoa on a chilly afternoon? While all of those might be possibilities, none seem to reflect childhood memories. Have you guessed it? Yep - the fall carnival! The traveling carnival usually accompanies an area's fall festival.
