What does fall mean to you?

Updated on September 8, 2015

Fall holds it's own unique meaning for every individual. It could be the coming of cooler days to some. While others, think of tailgating and football. To the younger individuals, it means back to school. Those who are passionate about nature, enjoy this time of year. Something as simple as a season change, holds so many meanings to so many different individuals.

Falling Leaves

As fall begins, temperatures are slightly cooler. It creates a mood of content. The falling leaves are vibrant in colors of red, yellow, and orange. Children playing in the leaves for hours on end. Laughing and jumping in and out of the mounds, they feel were made just for them. People enjoy long walks in the park, or hiking in the mountains. The falling leaves convey a feeling of tranquillity.


One of our favorite pastimes, football starts in fall. Everyone looking forward to the start of football season, Pee Wee, Middle School, High School, College, and Professional. Each with its own unique group of followers. With football season, comes tailgating at the college and professional levels. A time to socially network with people, and have fun. They enjoy the food, the company, the rivalry and wearing their favorite team colors. Good times for all involved.

Back to School

Children head back to the classroom, just prior to the start of fall. However, everyone associates fall with back to school. Children have mixed emotions during this time of year. They hate the classes and learning, but enjoy interacting with their friends. It's a time for social networking. They enjoy extracurricular activities.

Parents have mixed emotions, as well. Most parents are glad to see their children go back to school. Each have their own reasons, time to themselves, babysitting expenses, enjoyment of those extracurricular activities, and so much morel Fall brings fun, excitement, and peace to all involved.

Other Reflections of Fall

Families would gather to harvest crops. It's also know as apple-picking season. Halloween, a huge commercial event, occurs in October. One can find events such as Oktoberfest. An event, which is geared around the happenings of the season. Hay rides, pumpkin carving, corn mazes, food vendors, pumpkin or apple pie-eating contests, bobbing for apples, and many more events reflecting the time of year.

Fall Reflection

No matter what it means. It a transitional time. It signifies the end of summer, and the passage to winter. It's a reflection of all things relaxing, soothing, serene, vivid, flamboyant and vibrant. The calming effect of the leaves falling, a time of peace.
