Why I Love Autumn

Updated: Sep 9, 2019

With it being the middle of August now, Autumn is slowly creeping upon us. I love Summer as much as the next person, but Autumn has some amazing qualities too. There are so many magical things about Autumn. Firstly, Autumn is really pretty. The leaves start to fall off the trees creating crispy walkways and beautiful photos. The leaves become fun to walk and kick, and dogs love jumping in them. The trees start to change colour and create beautiful scenery.

Winter movies start to appear on TV, you can cosy up on the sofa with a blanket, and a light jumper. Extra blankets give you a feeling of warmth and snugness. You can change your wardrobe and start to buy cute jumpers and high boots creating cosy, cute Autumn outfits. If you get too warm in Summer, Autumn brings a much cooler breeze that feels very refreshing amongst your skin. This season is perfect for taking a lovely walk and taking in the scenery. Autumn isn’t too cold to enjoy either, there is a cool breeze, but it’s nice to walk in, especially if you are a person that gets warm easily. No more struggling to sleep in boiling hot conditions. No more uncomfortable walking where you are too hot to walk anymore. Autumn also brings along a little bit of darkness in the morning and evenings, giving it a Winter feel, it also allows you to see the beautiful dusk and dawn scenery which a lot of people miss in the Summer.

You can also enjoy Autumn activities like carving pumpkins, making a hot soup or a warm hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream. Halloween and Bonfire night allow you to really enjoy Autumn by dressing up and going to Halloween parties. Bonfire night also allows you to do the same and watch the sky light up for hours in the most amazing way. A lot of pubs start putting on fireplaces that made it feel cosy. You can eat new foods like Toffee Apples and drink warm Apple wine. Coffee shops also start bringing out new drinks, like the Pumpkin Spice Latte that you can try. If you are really daring you can try a Haunted House adventure and watch scary movies. A new season means a new start and Autumn has a huge place in my heart.
