You cannot deny it, autumn is magical. And there are so many reasons why fall is the best season.
As the leaves begin to change their colors and the air turns crisp, there’s a certain magic in the atmosphere that signifies the arrival of my (and many others) favorite season, fall.
From pumpkins to cozy sweaters and hay rides, fall offers a unique blend of warmth and nostalgia that captures our hearts.
Living in Upstate NY, I am lucky enough to experience the beautiful colors and magic of fall every year. It’s so inspiring as an artist to see the stunning color palette sweep over landscapes.
In this post, I go over 10 reasons why I think fall is the best season of the year to get you excited for the upcoming autumn season!
Why Fall Is the Best Season
Transformation of Nature
To me, nature during the fall is one of the top reasons why fall is the best. Trees adorn landscapes with their rich shades of red, orange, and yellow, and crunchy leaves hit the ground. This explosion of color creates a picturesque backdrop for outdoor activities and scenic drives. I got married the first week of November and it was breathtaking!
Fall simply brings relief from the summer heat. Opening windows in the house to let in an autumn breeze is just the best. The mild temperatures also allow for comfortable outdoor adventures without breaking a sweat.
Sweaters & Comfy Clothes
I love it when I can break out my flannels, leggings, and oversized sweaters! Fall fashion is all about comfort and style. It’s the season of cozy sweaters, warm color palettes, and layering.
As a person who someday wants to be a pumpkin farmer, pumpkins are another reason why I think fall is the best season. From pumpkin spice, pumpkin pies, and pumpkin-scented candles, fall is known for the delightful flavor and aroma of this beloved gourd.
Festivals & Events
There are usually so many local events and festivals during the fall season. I personally love going to farms, buying apple cider and baked goods, and going on hayrides!
For many kids and adults, Halloween is the highlight of the fall season. Dressing up in costumes, carving pumpkins, and the thrill of trick-or-treating all contribute to the enchantment of autumn. Halloween is my favorite holiday!
Fall is the perfect time for comforting dishes and warm apple cider. I love to make chili on the weekends and experiment with new baking recipes during this season.
With the days getting shorter, fall evenings provide an opportunity to unwind and relax. After a busy summer, it’s refreshing to have a season to sit back and enjoy the simple things. The fireplace, Netflix, cozy socks, and blankets are the perfect combo for a night in!
Whether you’re an amateur or a professional photographer, this season provides a backdrop of unparalleled beauty for capturing precious memories. I try to get some nice shots of the leaves changing every year.
A Sense of Renewal
Fall is not just about endings; it’s also about beginnings. As nature sheds its old leaves, it symbolizes a fresh start. This season encourages self-reflection and personal growth, making it a perfect time to set new goals and aspirations.
The Magic Of Fall
As you embrace the crisp air and the pumpkin-spiced delights, take a moment to appreciate the magic that is fall.
Fall is special to everyone for their own reasons. Though we can all probably agree on the obvious reasons why it’s special, it means something different to each individual person. Whether that be football games, back to school, holidays, food, or spending more time with family, there are so many reasons why fall is the best.
