Michaelmas is the feast day of dargon-slayer St Michael, who was popular during medieval times and had many churches dedicted to him. Traditionally a roast goose was eaten on this day – September is when geese are in their prime condition. The festival is not as widely known as it used to be and used to be a major landmark in the calendar. Also associated with this season are Michaelmas Daisies.
