Fall weather is the best out of all the seasons and there’s doubt about it. By the end of this, you will love the beauty of fall as much as I do.
Fall starts on September 22nd and ends on December 21st. During this time, the weather grows cooler, leaves begin changing color and different plants start to grow. With the cool breeze, it begins to rain again. I love all these changes; after a long period of time just seeing green leaves you finally get a break with vibrant orange.
I’m not sure about anyone else but for me, the fall is when you’re finally able to wear a hoodie without sweating all over the place and let me tell you, I like my hoodies.
The rain is also calming and clears my mind; the sound of rain soothes with every raindrop that falls and touches the ground, giving a little joy. Going outside in the rain, feeling every drop hit my head and fall down my face, it’s a feeling that I don’t think I could describe. I know some people might think it’s weird and may ask why a wouldn’t shower be the same, but something about the natural rain falling is a different feeling than just man-made water dropping.
As much as I love the rain, I wouldn’t want it 24/7, which is why it’s great it’s not all season around. After a hot summer, I can finally go inside and start snuggling up in blankets and drinking tea or hot chocolate.
Fall is not too cold, but it’s not hot either and for me, that’s an absolute win. I remember one Halloween when it rained. It was the best, though at first, it didn’t seem like a good idea at all. Although if you think about it, not as many kids want to go trick or treating then. The fewer kids there are, the more candy you get. I think I’ve gotten the most candy that way; I remember some people just dumped the whole bucket into my pillow cover. That year ended up being one of the best halloweens of my life.
Fall can only last so long, now it’s your chance to get outside and start enjoying the wonders of fall.
