The inevitable is about to occur next week. ~ the official arrival of fall. We all know summer has to end at some point, and some of us like to pretend it's still kind of summer until the calendar actual tells us otherwise. Us being me, and many others I'm sure!
I thought today would be a good day to share some fun fall facts with you. Some of them are just interesting facts, while others may be something new you never knew!
1} There is no difference between autumn and fall. Supposedly the term autumn is preferred in the UK, while fall is used more in the US. Before this it was simply called harvest.
2} The No. Eastern US is one of the best places in the world for viewing a large variety of fall colors. (Yay for NH!)
3} Apples, squash and pumpkins are plentiful during the fall.
4} There are two days during the year when you can take an egg and stand in on it's end. One being the spring equinox, and the other being the fall equinox. (This is new to me!)
5} Animals are now preparing to hibernate by eating as much as they can so that they can survive until spring. Around here there are always tons of squirrels scurrying all over gathering acorns.
Did you all know about the egg fact, or was I the only one?
