I love this month! Halfway through October, and there’s a brisk tang of anticipation in the air. Halloween decorations are on sale, and stores are already prepping the Thanksgiving and Christmas aisles. More than just these annual holidays, though, there’s a magical atmosphere to the month – a clarity and brightness to the weather, as people dig out sweaters and scarves and debate the virtues of pumpkin spice-flavored products, and a heightened awareness of change, as the seasons nudge each other and school semesters start afresh.
For those of us here on the AINM team, there’s also the mounting anticipation of another International Night Market. It’s hard for us to believe that the weekend of November 3rd – 5th is only 17 days away! We’re looking forward to eating empanadas, playing ohajiki, dancing the flamenco, and celebrating diversity in Atlanta with you!
