The season for warm sweaters, football games, and pumpkin-spiced everything has finally arrived. Autumn, fall, harvest season, whatever you call it, is finally here. Personally, this is my favorite season. You can start to see the leaves falling, the scarecrows, plaid designs, and the amazing decorations being displayed. The crisp air makes the sweaters, beanies, and scarves come out of the closet. It's the season for family gatherings, leaf piles, Thanksgiving, and Halloween.

Fall is the third season of the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, it is from September to November. This year fall is planned for Wednesday, September 22 to Tuesday, December 21. The leaves begin to fall and change from green to an assortment of beautiful colors such as red, orange, brown, and yellow. It is the start of the days getting shorter and the nights getting longer. Autumn is also named the aurora season because it’s a great time to go stargazing since the nights begin to clear up and the stars seem to be just a little brighter.

Fall also brings up the perfect time for amazing activities. Some include; pumpkin patches, apple picking, leaf piles, haunted houses, corn mazes, and many more. A few haunted houses are FrightWorks on West Emory Road and Frightmare Manor, which is an extremely scary haunted house near Talbott. An amazing apple picking place in Alcoa is Apple Valley Farm. Another fun fall activity is a corn maze called Kyker Farms Corn Maze in Sevierville. A great pumpkin patch and corn maze is Oaks Farm located in Corryton. Oaks Farm also has 40 play activities and Crafts to make!
