The first known use of the expression “Indian Summer” was in 1778. It is said to have originated in New England, referring to the Native American practice of gathering winter stores at this time. According to the dictionary it is “a period of warm or mild weather in late autumn or early winter”. It’s also “a happy or flourishing period occurring toward the end of something.” As we head toward toward the end of summer in the northern hemisphere, we’d like to mix it up.
