Welcome Fall

Happy St Giles!  The Germans have a few sayings concerning the 1st day of September and its weather.  They are reflecting farmer’s wisdom and are more commonly known as Bauernregeln.

Gib auf Ägidius Acht, er sagt dir, was September macht.

Ägidius Regen – kommt ungelegen.
Ist Ägidius ein heller Tag, so folgt ein guter Herbst.


(If it rains on September 1st, fall will be rainy, and if it’s nice, fall will be nice.)
