October Celebrations Among Relatives and Ancestors

Among my farming ancestors this would have been the last month of the harvest and the beginning of colder weather.  How much harder it would have been to keep an infant warm during the fall and winter months than during the late spring and summer.  And harder to wash and dry diapers a century or more ago than now.  I give great credit to those early mothers.  I know they knew nothing of the conveniences we have but not knowing didn't make the work any easier.  They -- and their husbands, too -- probably knew little of leisure time.
