Pumpkin Spice Madness – DI – Don Veino 20181006

Type: Contra Dance, Duple Improper
Status: Proven

Keep calm.
Pumpkin Spice is everywhere!

We’re in that season again – where everything gets offered in some form of pumpkin spiced variant. I find most such things (but for pancakes or other baked goods) totally foul but the other residents of our household seem to relish them. So I figure I just have to embrace the amusement of the Pumpkin Spice Madness season and trust it’ll come to an end soon! At least I got a decent dance theme/title out of it. 🙂
