Dreaming of pumpkin lattes, caramel apples, turkey, and mashed potatoes? So are we! It’s finally Autumn, a favorite season to many who enjoy the fun foods, festivities, and cooler weather. In this blog, you will find 10 reasons why autumn is one of the best seasons, and why there’s much to be happy about this time of year.

 

Changing Colors

Many people love Autumn for the changing colors of leaves. Trees that were once green explode into beautiful hues of gold, red, and orange. The colors are especially breathtaking in places like New England in the United States, the Douro River Valley in Portugal, and Bavaria in Germany, inspiring many people to travel to these spots to take in the scenery.

Homemade Delicious Pumpkin Pie

Pumpkin Everything

If you love pumpkins, then you’re in luck! Pumpkin flavors can be found everywhere in Autumn, particularly in traditional favorites like pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread, and in more modern treats like pumpkin-spiced teas and coffees. Be sure to get your fill before the season ends!

Delicious Desserts

Autumn is one of the best times of year for sweets. Caramel apples, taffies, and candies can be found in abundance, as well as pumpkin pie, pecan pie, apple pie…basically any kind of pie your heart may desire. If you’re indulging in pumpkin pie this Autumn, don’t forget the whipped cream!

Cooler Weather

After the intense heat of the summer, it can be a relief when it finally starts to cool down. September is a great month weather-wise, as warm days start to give way to cool, crisp nights. After months of blasting the air conditioning, the beginning of Autumn often ushers in cooler breezes that allow you to finally keep the windows open.

Better Fashion

When it’s intensely hot in the summer, fashion can sometimes go by the wayside in favor of coolness and comfort. However, Autumn ushers in new fashions like jackets, sweaters, and boots that tend to be more flattering than shorts and flip flops, and more fun to wear.

Firepits

If you’re lucky enough to have a firepit on your property, or know someone who does, this is the ideal time of year to use it! There’s nothing like roasting hot dogs, brats, or marshmallows over an open fire. Be sure to take advantage now before winter comes and it’s too cold!

Arts and Crafts

Whether you’re carving pumpkins for Halloween, crafting an intricate sugar skull for Dia de Los Muertos, or stuffing a cornucopia for Thanksgiving, there are plenty of crafts to keep both kids and adults busy every Autumn.

Holidays

Autumn is chock full of holiday festivities around the world, such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Dia de Los Muertos. Autumn holidays are particularly enjoyable because of the wonderful meals, tasty treats, elaborate costumes, and rich colors that go along with the celebrations.
