As most of us know, the first day of autumn wasn’t too long ago on September 23rd. As the air gets brisker and the pumpkins start appearing on peoples’ doorsteps, it is undoubtedly starting to feel more and more like fall. Because I personally love autumn for multiple reasons, I asked some of my fellow classmates what their favorite thing about fall was, and I got a variety of answers. Many students said they love the changing colors of the leaves, and others said they love being able to wear sweaters and flannels. Some students said their favorite thing about fall was food like cinnamon sugar donuts, apple cider, and pumpkin spice lattes, while others said their favorite thing was soccer and football season. One student’s answer that spoke to my heart was that autumn means the bugs are dying, and frankly, I couldn’t agree more.
