Why Autumn is the best season of the year!

It’s that time of the year again when the trees begin to shed their weight and we find ourselves spending more time with our fireplaces at home. Not forgetting the obvious reminders from supermarkets displaying festive delicacies such as pumpkins lattes and caramel apples.

But what is it about this season that creates a warm inviting atmosphere that we all love.

We’ve listed some of our favourite moments; see if you agree with any!

Bye, bye summer… Hello, autumn!

The autumnal weather allows us to take a break from the humid summer months, as it greets us with a refreshing cool breeze towards the end of the day.
Autumn is also much calmer than other seasons, not too cold, not too hot – just perfect. Bear in mind, it can get rather chilly in the evenings, so if you’re planning on going for a walk, make sure you wrap up warm!

Seasonal colours

It’s safe to say there is something truly amazing about watching autumnal leaves as they fall gently to the grounds.
And as you go out for your daily walk to enjoy the crisp air and leaves crunching under your feet, you’ll also notice the leaves changing colours to beautiful hues of red, orange and yellow.

Pumkins galore!

If you’re a pumpkin fan then this is your season. There’s so much you can do with them, from baking sweet pumpkin pies, or if you prefer savory then you’ll love some creamy pumpkin and lentil soup. They’re also perfect for carving your jack o lantern in time for the annual Halloween party.
Top tip:
To keep your pumpkin fresher for longer, wrap it up really tight with plastic wrap and keep it in a very cool place, preferably a refrigerator.

Trick or treat?

Autumn is full of around the world holidays such as Thanksgiving and Halloween. Halloween is a great chance to enjoy time with the family by dressing up for themed parties and events, or you can stay at home and enjoy the cheesy marathon Halloween movies. There’s so much to do – the possibilities are endless!
