Some people call it Fall while others call it Autumn. Which is correct? Let us dig into this deeper.
Autumn comes from the Latin word “autumnus”. The root of the word “autumn” is related to the
“passing of the year” while the word Fall seems to be a deviation of an Old English word, “fall” which
means to fall from a height.
Before it was autumn and fall, it was known as harvest.
Whatever you call it or what the meaning may be, it does mean one thing. Winter is next.
Wait a minute, not to rush things but I want to chat about my personal favorite season of the year.
What can be more relaxing than watching the “falling” leaves, or tasting all the pumpkin spice creations-
hey, about 10 years ago, whoever even heard of pumpkin spice? The change of colors of the leaves,
grasses, and skies are beautiful as well. There is something to be said for the crisp mornings. For all you
sports fans, fall means football even though that is a bit different this year because of Covid.
It is also the time of year to get those warm clothes ready for what is next. Time to get your outside
chores done as well as get your automobile in prime shape. Check your furnace or your primary heating
source. Change the batteries in your smoke alarms.
Somehow, we just do not seem to mind the preparations for Fall even though we know Winter is next.
My advice is to take the time to watch color-changing leaves, sip that apple cider, go visit a pumpkin patch,
get your flannels and fleece ready because it is here.
And for the record, I always have and always will call it Fall. But whatever you call it–Just Enjoy!
