On Michaelmas the condescending clergyman Mr. Collins arrives at Longbourn to stay with his relatives the Bennets. Oh, and choose one of them to marry since he is slated to inherit the house when Mr. Bennet dies and marrying would keep the house in the family. It’s complicated.
How to Commemorate:
- Choose which of your cousins you would marry–and then (because we’re not gross) choose one of their neighbors for real!
- Write down some compliments that you could use at a future time to lighten someone’s mood.
- Pick one person you know, and kiss their ass. Like, a lot of ass.
- Eat a goose. It’s not really mentioned in the book, but it’s a Michaelmas tradition, I promise!
