Did you know that carving pumpkins originated in Ireland? Ancient Celtic cultures would actually carve turnips (pumpkins didn’t exist in Ireland) on All Hallow’s Eve and place an ember in them to ward off evil spirits. The Irish brought the tradition to America which has turned into a favorite October pastime for all ages and skills.

You more than likely know that the season of fall is also a season of harvest (hence people calling it “fall harvest”). Crops all around the country are ready to be cut from the ground or pulled off a tree. While it’s normal for the season of fall harvest to be filled with chilly days, it can also bring a sense of warmth with all the color changes.
With farmers out harvesting their crops, folks are starting to decorate their homes. Fall is the start of the decorating season. From now until January 1st, we'll have many holidays, leaving our homes decorated for many different occasions.

Late summer and early fall are a great time to go camping near Chico. The weather starts to cool down and the nights get crisp and perfect for gathering around a campfire. Make sure you prepare for your camping trip, and that means more than packing supplies. Do your homework and pick your campsite carefully. Campsites that are too small and cramped close together are not fun. Facilities that don't have potable water or toilets are only fun for hard-core campers that come prepared. Make sure you pick a site that fits your needs and level of outdoors experience.
