Some things never change, no matter what decade, century or millennia. Preparing for the changing of seasons is one of those timeless traditions. Gathering and harvesting. Canning, pickling, and smoking meats—timeless. Home preparations for the colder months ahead—timeless tradition.
I recently read an article that said Fall cleaning is just as important as Spring Cleaning. Though I had never thought of doing a “Fall Cleaning” like “Spring Cleaning,” it makes perfect sense. In the Spring, we are airing out the home from it being kept closed through the winter months. In the Fall, we should be giving it just as thorough of a cleaning in preparation for it being kept more closed up through the winter.
