Indian summer


You may not remember this, but last September we had an Indian summer in Spain after a spot of torrential rain and whatnot typical of the time of year.  I don’t know why I’d never noticed the expression before, but discovered that this phenomenon in Spanish is called “Veranillo de San Miguel” – literally “Saint Michael’s little summer”.   I like these literal translations sometimes, even though this one makes you think of Marks and Spencers t-shirts and cotton dresses.  The day of Saint Michael the archangel is in fact the 29th September, every year.
