Sept. 22 is the first official day of autumn! That means it's finally time for all of our favorite fall activities!

At 3:44 p.m. the autumnal equinox will occur, thus making day and night equal times for the next 3 months. But just because summer has come to an end does not mean that fall won't live up to our expectations!

Check out some of our favorite things about fall here:

  • Perfect Football Weather

    Does this really even need an explanation? Everyone knows what the perfect football weather is - cool enough to wear warm clothes and cheer on your favorite team, but not so cold that you need 12 blankets and hot chocolate just to survive the game. That crisp air essentially defines perfection.

  • Fall Foods

    Fall starting means that it is totally acceptable to eat anything pumpkin, gingerbread or cinnamon flavored now. And when I say anything, I mean it. Cookies, lattes, pies, cakes, whatever. Plus, who doesn't love it when their kitchen smells so delicious??
