The smell of fire from chimneys pervade the air, the sound of crunching leaves echo in the distance; it’s finally time for fall. Fall is a time of new beginnings and excitement. Fall is arguably the most exciting time of the year for many people which is not surprising as there are plenty of reasons to love this season.
One reason to love fall is because of, well, leaves! The leaves change color and most importantly they fall off the trees. This allows for fun things such as jumping in piles of leaves to occur. Plus, the leaves just look beautiful on the trees.
Another reason to be excited about fall is the weather. This season brings forth the infamous sweatshirt weather. Typically a fall day is comprised of a nice quaint, brisk morning followed by a cool, charming day. The weather is what truly makes this season so great.
If the weather is too cold for the liking of some, then there is certainly a solution. Fall comes with an assortment of hot drinks with seasonal flavoring.
The drinks in the fall are simply unmatched by any other seasonal drinks. The delicious drinks include Starbucks’s very own Pumpkin Spice Latte, hot apple cider, and a variety of other delicious pumpkin flavored drinks. The drinks bring a feeling of warmth as well as comfort.
Not only is fall a season full of great weather and drinks, but it also brings quite a bit of entertainment. Arguably the most fun form of entertainment is haunted attractions. During the time of fall, many places open up haunted attractions that are full of screams and adrenaline.
Around Maryland, a variety of haunted attractions is present including Bennetts Curse and Field of Screams. This type of entertainment is not for the faint of heart, but it is extremely enjoyable.
Going along with the haunted theme, fall is home to the holiday of Halloween. This is a time for people of all ages to dress up in any costume they want. Kids are typically seen running through their neighborhoods attempting to get as much candy as humanly possible, while others are handing out candy to these sugared up children.
Although adults typically are not out savaging for candy, all can be a part of the fun whether it’s a costume party or handing out candy to the excited kids.
Halloween isn’t the only holiday in fall; Thanksgiving is also a part of this season. This is a time for families to grow closer while enjoying delicious comfort food.
The food during Thanksgiving is unmatched by any other holiday. The food ranges from pumpkin pie to a delicious turkey. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on all the joys of life and to appreciate those around.
Fall is certainly a great time of the year. It is a time of comfort, fires, fun, and family time. This season will never be surpassed by any of the other three seasons.
