Page18 POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 1 O, 2014 .=4l, bingers of fall in my child- hood. From truffles to chest- nuts, Italians never miss an opportunity to honor the bountiful food that October yields. October brims with possi- bility. In many ways, it is a month of contrasts: golden days when sunlight peeks behind orange leaves and rainy days when the sound of wind mimics a howling ghost; cozy evenings in a L'Anno Belle (Continued from Page 4) bright and aromatic kitchen and dark nights when the crackling branches conjure images of Halloween beasts. This multifaceted nature of October makes it a month to celebrate autumn in all its glory. Taking a cue from the festivals of Italy, we can start by paying special atten- tion to the gifts the Earth yields during this month. With a whole month of lovely autumn days before us, we will certainly be able to find many small reasons to cel- ebrate this month of har- vest, home and spookiness! Happy October! Ally Di Censo Symynkywicz is a Graduate Student in History at the University of Massachusetts Boston. She appreciates any comments and suggestions about Italian holidays and folklore at adicenso89@gmail.com.
