The Secret of Indian Summer

Summer is not quite over yet, and for lovers of this sunny season, Indian summer is a real gift from mother nature. But where does this mysterious term come from, and what does it really mean?

The Origin of Indian Summer

The term "Indian summer" is often used to describe a period of unusually warm and sunny weather that occurs in the fall, usually after the first frost. The origin of this phrase is shrouded in mystery, but it is often attributed to the indigenous people of North America, particularly the American Indians. According to popular legend, the American Indians took advantage of this late period of warmth to prepare their food reserves for the winter. They considered it a “gift from the spirits” which allowed them to extend the hunting and harvest season. Today it feels more like warm autumn or second summer.

Joe Dassin, a French-American singer, helped popularize this term with his famous song "L'Été Allemand". This iconic song captured the essence of this time of year and has captured the imagination of generations of people, mentally transporting them to sunny beaches and relaxing times. Joe Dassin's "love at first sight" for this season was shared by many others, and this time of year has become a special time to enjoy the mildness of fall.
