Friday night topic: Fall festivities
I'm off to the Weston Irish Festival
tonight. If you're anywhere near the Kansas City area, you should consider making the trip. A couple of weekends ago, we had the local Oktoberfestand it wasn't even October yet! The size and number of these things seems to be growing each year. What is it about fall that makes us all want to festivate so? What do you do locally to celebrate, uh, whatever it is we're celebrating? (Used to be harvest, I suppose, but that seems less relevant to most of us these days.) Discuss.
