Parties / by Karie Luidens


There’s a reason autumn is the season of celebration, from Halloween parties like the one where I danced the night away last night, to Día de los Muertos next weekend, to Thanksgiving just around the corner. All through the spring and summer, we’ve done the hard work of tilling, planting, weeding, and watering—or at least our ancestors did when society was still predominantly agricultural. Now the harvest is in. It’s time for one last hurrah of abundance before we start rationing what we’ve saved through the barren winter months.
