Winter Is Coming

When does winter begin? 

Officially we need to wait till December- the 1st of December by meteorological reckoning and the 21st by astronomical reckoning- but the day we put the clocks back- which was yesterday- and as a result have sunset arriving at teatime- feels like the start of it to me.

And, anyway....

"Tomorrow night is Halloween,
Our faery court will ride...."
