Hello, Fall! As we waved goodbye to the hot and lively summer days on September 23, 2023, we rolled out the red carpet for the cozy and colorful season of autumn. It’s officially the first day of fall, and there’s a refreshing chill in the air!
What’s This Fall Thing About Anyway?
The autumn equinox, the fancy term for the first day of fall, is when the day and night decide to be equals, giving us roughly the same amount of light and dark. It’s like nature’s way of telling us to find balance, before the days start getting shorter and nights longer.
A Cool Change
We’ve all felt the scorch of the summer sun recently, and now, the cool breezes of autumn feel like a sweet, sweet relief! It’s a time when the leaves decide to throw a color party, dressing up in vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows, and the scent of pumpkin spice starts to fill the air.
Why Fall is Just Awesome!
