The Nights Are Drawing In

Of course, what you forget about this staying on later at work lark, is that at this time of year it's dark when you come out to play.

It has been some time since I heard anyone say, "The nights are drawing in..."  Has that expression died out, or have we simply got better things to talk about, these days?

We still say, "The nights are drawing in..." But then we also say, "The evenings are drawing out."

Cast not a clout, etc.! Watch out, or the folklorists will be round to "collect" your true country ways!

When the fridge be quiet
The mice do riot
When the fridge is on
The mice be gone
