Autumn ~ Martinmas ~ "We have begun a family tradition of giving a handmade woolen garment on this day, as well as giving away any outgrown coats and sweaters to others who may be in need."
Sweet. (Ingrid Groep - I think...the original pin was in Dutch. Sorry if I've mislabelled this.)

NOV 11 ST MARTIN Happy Martinmas! Cookies and more!
A Martinmas meal is typically very simple and sometimes includes a food that can be cut in half and shared with your family member next to you in the same gesture of Martin cutting his cloak in half and giving it away. Some European nations used to celebrate with the eating of a goose for that special meal; (it is said honking geese gave St. Martin away when he was hiding from people who wanted to make him Bishop!). It also is a festival of harvest, preparation for Winter.
