October is olive harvest season month in Greece – a tradition that dates back to ancient times! Olives and olive oil are staples in the Mediterranean diet! There’s nothing better than a Greek salad with olives and feta cheese with taramousalata spread! If you haven’t tried it, you are missing something really special!
And – let’s not forget Halloween is in October! Just saw that Conway, SC is attracting tourists By changing its name to Halloween! The Mayor of Conway, Barbara Blain-Bellamy, even held a news conference to proclaim that the City of Conway will refer to itself as “Halloween” this October! Bellamy held that news conference in 2022, however, the town said that it was such a financial success last year that they plan on sticking with it! They have seen twenty times the number of visitors! The punch line: It’s not scary, it’s entertainment!
