Why fall is the best season

September 8, 2021

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

As everyone says their last goodbyes to the freedoms of summer, I am filled with joy thinking of fall coming soon. This season holds a special nostalgia in my heart. It’s the smell of the crisp air, the warmth in the house, the harvest-scented candles and the pumpkin spice latte coffee runs. 

Fall is the season that you can get away with wearing flannels and sweaters every day. It’s a time where you can gather with friends and family and watch Halloween movies. 

If you are a coffee lover like me, you probably have already tried all of the new fall-flavored drinks released. If you haven’t, you are definitely missing out. This year, apple flavor is in. If you aren’t a fan of coffee, hot apple cider and hot chocolate will be your best friends this fall. 

Friday night lights are back in full swing. It’s almost time to bundle up and cheer on the Rider Raiders as they dominate the field. Nothing compares to drinking a hot chocolate while wrapped in your favorite cozy blanket. 

Grocery stores are filled with pumpkin-spice flavored sweets and halloween decor. Soon, night drives will be even more fun with all of the lights and spooky skeletons. Porches will be the home of many carved pumpkins. 

The weather is the perfect mix: not too hot and not too cold. As the trees shed their leaves, we put on extra layers and prepare for the winter. The colors of autumn also make it the best season. 

The pops of orange, red, yellow and brown fill every inch of Wichita Falls. Although Texas temperatures are still in the nineties, the cold and frosty mornings of fall are coming. The crunch of fallen leaves will soon be under your feet. 

But it is not all of the “fall things” that make fall so special for many others and I; it is the season where you gather with all of your friends and family. Fall is where I learned to appreciate the joy of reuniting with the ones you love the most. It is the official start of the holidays.
