If you asked me my favorite season, I would without hesitation choose fall. There is just something about the crisp weather, the flannels, and watching scary movies while wrapped in a blanket that makes it a little easier to get it out of bed in the morning. It may be only September, but it is officially ~Spooky Season~ in my book. Here are seven reasons to love fall.


1. Sweater weather

There is something magical about finally breaking out your favorite light sweater or flannel for those crisp fall days to do some basic pumpkin or apple picking.

2. Fall scented candles

I love fall candles despite the severe lack of them in my room and house. This is due to lacks of funds in my bank account. Who wouldn't want their room to smell like pumpkin pecan waffles? I know I would, if the cost of a candle wasn't the same price as a weeks worth of groceries. But I digress. Also, Vanilla Pumpkin Marshmallow scented candle, anyone?

3. Halloween movies

I tend to gravitate towards the movies that put me in the Halloween mood rather than making my spirit leave my body. (I am a total scaredy cat when it comes to anything scary). My favorite ones to watch would be Hocus Pocus, HalloweenTown, and Corpse Bride.

4. Halloween


How can you not love Halloween? The dressing up, the candy, the discounted candy the day after. I don’t care how old I get, I will always be thinking about what I want to be for Halloween beginning in August. Have I mentioned it is one of my favorite holidays?

5. Apple picking

There is nothing better than picking a huge bag of apples and trying to find ways to get rid of them before they turn all gross. You probably won’t get that far, but it’s the thought that counts! Apple pie for breakfast is always a good idea.

6. Leaves changing colors

My favorite part about going to school in Utica is it’s close proximity to the Adirondacks. There is nothing better than going on a hike and seeing all the changing colors.

7. Pumpkin carving

I am accident prone, so I won’t be carving any pumpkins this year. However, how cool is a jack-o-lantern? If you don’t trust yourself enough to carve a pumpkin like me, there's always pumpkin painting.

In conclusion, there are so many great things about fall and so many reasons to love it. If you need me, I’ll be waiting patiently for it to finally be 50 degrees out.


If you need to find me, I am probably reading, writing, or looking at dog videos. Lover of corgis, chocolate, and coffee.
