Happy Autumnal Equinox! Today is the official first day of fall here in the northern hemisphere 🍁🍂🍃 Nights are getting longer, days are getting shorter, temperatures are dropping, and the leaves are beginning to change! What's your favorite part of autumn? I love the beauty and hoodie weather! #autumn #fall #autumnalequinox #equinox #celebrate #beauty #gratitude #nature
It’s now officially fall! Yesterday was the autumnal equinox, which marks the first official day of fall here in the northern hemisphere.
One of my friends, CL, shared an interesting article on her Facebook about why fall is the only season that has two names (one thing I know I have personally wondered about many times). I thought it was an interesting, and not too terribly long, read:
Do you have a preference for what you call this season? I use both fall and autumn about equally. Sometimes I’ll even use both in the same sentence! I do really love the name Autumn, as well.
Is this your favorite season? Even if it isn’t your favorite season, what is your favorite part of the season? I absolutely love watching the trees change (so gorgeous!), the smells, the crunch of the leaves underfoot, the feeling of the crisp breeze, and hoodies!!! I also love hot tea and cozy blankets, but I get to keep those all through winter too 😉
