What are the little things that make fall (or autumn, in some countries), as they say, the most beautiful of all seasons? Let’s find out:
First and foremost, daylights have turned shorter, bringing in cooler winds (and longer nights).
The cool wind blowing against our skin can make us want to feel the warmth of sweaters, blankets, and socks. That means it’s time to gracefully transition your wardrobe from summer to fall.
Aside from the warmth that layering your clothes gives you, nothing beats the feeling of wrapping your fingers around a mug of hot chocolate drink while staying in to read a good book.
Staying in also means watching new seasons of your much-awaited TV series or cheering for your favorite team along with your sport-savvy buddies because, hey, it’s football season again!
But if you’re a lover of the outdoors, there’s no better reason to just go out and marvel at the fascinating change of colors of nature - the fall foliage. Can’t help but snap that Instagram-mable setting right?
Or an inviting sight of crunchy leaves piled in the park or along the sidewalks. We all know there’s nothing more satisfying than the crunch you hear as you stomp over a blanket of vibrant foliage.
At sunset, as the coolness of the night begins to set in, the familiar sight of campfires begin to light up the darkness.
And what’s fall without the pumpkins? The season for ripened gourds is nigh, which means saying hello to all-things pumpkin-related -- from pumpkin spice-flavored drinks and pumpkin pies, to (wait for it)
Jack-o-Lanterns! Because the spookiest time of the year is just around the corner too! You can’t celebrate a fun Halloween without a funny or creepy face sliced into an iconic bright orange, candle-lit decoration.
Aside from the abundance of pumpkins, this season also marks the harvesting of crops just in time for Thanksgiving Day, with its history dating back in the 1620 during the first successful harvest of the Pilgrims in Massachusetts.
While it may be too early to integrate Thanksgiving Day’s highlight of the table - the turkey, is still a traditional symbol that still comes packaged with the season.
Last and but not the least, the noticeable change in your surroundings, not only outdoors, but in your home, local stores, and even public areas like parks, bring about the warm palette of the season which makes easing into the season feel quite cozy (like hibernating).
