Autumn with TALK in the U.S.
Autumn in the U.S.
Many of us does not know much about the autumn season or fall. This year, 2019, the autumnal equinox started on September 23rd. What does it mean? Well… the word “equinox” comes from Latin eaquus, which means equal, and nox, which means night. During this time, day and night are each about 12 hours long. The sun rises later, and nightfall comes sooner. This ends with the December Solstice, when Winter officially begins, and days are longer and nights shorter.
Something wonderful about this season is the fall foliage. Leaves change color because of the amount of daylight and photosynthesis, not because of weather conditions as some people think. Also, people start getting ready for what the Fall brings. Great holidays such as Halloween and Thanksgiving!
Of course, don’t forget about the end of Daylight-Saving Time. We need to set our clocks back one hour and regaining an hour to our favor to sleep more!!
Here are some favorite fall quotes to remember:
“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.” – Unknown
“Autumn carries more gold in its pockets than all the other seasons.” – Jim Bishop
“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.” – Oscar Wilde
“Autumn is the season that teaches us that change can be beautiful.” – Unknown
