Next Thursday will be Saint Michael’s Day
Saint Michael’s Day will be celebrated next Thursday, Sept. 28. Special weather lore on this day says that if the mighty oaks filled with acorns the fields will be filled with snow on Christmas Day. We wonder if this is just lore or is it possible? Yes, and it has occurred in recent years. On Dec. 25, 2010, we had seven inches of snow, and in Northampton County, my grandma’s stomping grounds and home country where she lived and died, they enjoyed a hefty 12 inches of snow. What a great time for Michael to predict a white Christmas 2023. One of grandma’s wintry predictions was “If acorns cover the ground winter snow will abound-when squirrels are on the go look for snow!”
