I love the fall. I think it is the absolute best season of the year. The brisk air and all the pretty leaves are only part of the reason fall is my favorite.
1. The cool air is better than the stifling heat.
I'm that person who loves being wrapped up in ten blankets and feeling completely comfortable in my burrito-like state. When it's hot out, you go to sleep with a sheet on and that's all you can handle. But in the fall, you can breathe dragon-like breath and take walks in the cool weather comfortably.
2. All the pretty colors.
When you look around, all you see is a myriad of yellows, reds, and oranges that are so nice to look at. Although people may argue that they enjoy the green trees and bright blue sky, there is something about changing leaves that is just special during this time of year. You can play in these if you're a kid at heart like me.
I always look forward to Halloween in October. Although I am a 20-year-old girl, I still get dressed up and like hanging out with my friends on this day. Halloween just takes you back to when you were little and would go out at night running from one house to another. It's a nostalgia thing.
4. Apple picking.
Fall is the prime time for going apple and pumpkin picking. Who doesn't enjoy walking through the orchard going through rows of apple trees and taste-testing different apples? It's a great activity to do with family and friends, and it's just overall a fun thing to do during this time.
Who doesn't love Thanksgiving? It's a time of getting the whole gang together, spending time, and of course, eating. All the best things to do. There's just a feeling you get when you sit down with your family and friends and get to enjoy this time of year.
6. Moving the time back an hour.
As an exhausted college student, getting an extra hour of sleep is extremely important to me. Daylight savings is one of the best days of the year, in my opinion. You get that extra time to sleep instead of waking up and feeling like you're dead inside.
7. Sweater weather.
Ok, this might be one of the best parts of fall. You can dress like a bum and feel totally fine about yourself. You can wear sweaters and sweatpants everyday, and wear your fluffiest cardigans to class. You can wear all the boots you want, too. This season is just all about comfort, and it's fantastic.
Fall is the best season there is, there's no doubt about it. When you walk outside and take a deep breath of that cool fall air, you know the best time of the year has arrived. There's no denying fall has a special feeling that comes with it.
