It's fall. You know what that means: everything thats ever existed is pumpkin flavored and you can finally go outside without breaking a sweat. Autumn has been referred to as a very overrated season, but personally I think it's the best one. You get perfect 50 degree weather, the leaves look beautiful, and it's an excuse to eat hearty meals. There's a million reasons to love this season, but here are the top few.
Popular Right Now
If you were to ask me what my favorite season was it would be a very difficult question for me to answer. I love summer with its warm weather and sandals. I love spring with its blooming flowers and new life. I love winter for its snowy days and bright starry nights. And I love autumn for its world of colours(and it doesn't hurt that my birthday falls during its season.) I guess though if I had to narrow it down I'd say my favorite season falls in between the transition from summer to autumn because the weather is perfect and the taste of all that fall has to give is teasingly just around the corner. Autumn has so much to give, and so in honour of the season, I compiled a list of a few of the things I love about it.
1. The Leaves
When you think autumn you think leaves. Leaves turning to set the world ablaze with colour, leaves falling to crunch underfoot, leaves raked into piles to play in, and just leaves galore!
2.Hot Coffee, Hot Cocoa, Hot Tea, and Hot Apple Cider
Fall is the perfect time to fix yourself a hot cup of almost anything! Hardly anything beats a warm cuppa and a nice long book. Whether you're a coffee, tea, cocoa, or cider type of person it all hits the spot during autumn!
3. Fall Festivals
I don't know if it's the atmosphere or the festival food, but I have always had a soft spot for fall festivals. I love the music, the booths, the talent, and the people that all manifest together for a few days.
4. Fall Clothes
I'm not a huge fashion follower, but its hard to beat comfy sweaters and worn in boots. I love the clothes that you get to wear in autumn, especially leggings and big scarves. The clothes are super comfortable and keep you cozy as the weather gets cooler.
5. Fall Scented Candles
The smell of fall scented candles are a blessing in this life! I love the smell of all the herbs and spices mixed together. Little else is better at putting you in the autumn mood than a deliciously scented candle.
I have always loved Halloween because I love spooky things. I love watching movies that are Halloween themed or are just plain scary. I love folklore, dressing up in costumes, eating sweets, and carving pumpkins. This is just one of those holidays that I enjoy celebrating and have lots of fun while doing it.
9. Cooler Weather
Down here in Alabama the summers are as hot as Hades and the winters are as cold as the North Pole, so the reprieve of autumn really hits the spot. The rainy days are perfect for readers and the foggy mornings are nice and peaceful(even if it does look like zombie apocalypse weather!)
