8 reasons why Autumn is the best time of year

8 reasons why Autumn is the best time of year

Yes, Summer is fun, hot (occasionally in Scotland) and generally the most loved season by many. However, consider these 8 reasons why Autumn should be everyones favourite!

1. Halloween

We all love a good scare, free sweets and dressing up in your favourite spooky costume. It’s a good time to hit up the cinema and watch the horror movies you have been anticipating all year and the best thing….terrifying children who come trick or treating!

2. Christmas

I know what you are going to say, Christmas is in Winter. And yes, as Autumn officially ends on the 20th December this year Christmas is a Winter holiday. But the build up generally begins in November so the anticipation to this major holiday is firmly part of the Autumn season.

3. Apples

Some claim to get cranky if they don’t have apples, “an apple a day…,”  and all that. Well its harvest season for apples so why not bake that apple pie or at least keep the Doctor happy 

4. Ah….extra sleep

We all love our sleep and in winter you don’t complain with extra hours of sleep. The weather is usually cooler and it gets darker fast, prompting one to snuggle into warm clothing and fuzzy socks and prepare hot chocolate. No more blaring 5.00 am sun or noisy birds squawking on trees near your bedroom window. It’s time to hibernate on your luxury mattress.

5. Inexpensive outdoor activities

In the summer, it’s all about theme parks, summer holidays on the beaches, and attractions etc. but in Autumn the prices drop. So grab a jacket and get outdoors!

6.Glorious season of Sport

Fans reunite as Football, Rugby and many other sports are back on our TV’s.

7. Mother nature’s beauty

Driving across the country at this time offers breathtaking scenery as one notice’s how the earth changes from one colour to another. It’s hard to ignore how breathtaking every leaf on the ground looks.

8. Conkers 

The ultimate British past time! Getting wrapped up and heading to that secret tree that produces the biggest and best conkers. Then it’s home to soak in Vinegar or any other other secret family trick to firming up your new weapons!

You can decide for yourself but all in all there really is something to look forward to in Autumn. So say goodbye to summer, long daytime hours that are tiring, sweaty arms and sun burns and say hello to Autumn and an opportunity to gaze out at the world as it changes around you.
