Editor’s Advice: If you’re too lazy to do any of these things, just drink a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino and watch Netflix.

It’s that time of year again… Fall! September 22 marks the start of the autumn equinox, so that means we can officially begin fall festivities! Except, we are living in Alabama, a place of high temperature and unfortunately- summer weather during fall(the first part at least).

But, no worries, here are some ways to make fall in Alabama feel more autumn-y!

 

  • Pick out a pumpkin. It is never too early to get a pumpkin. Small pumpkins, large pumpkins, oddly shaped pumpkins… Pick one out and set it your front porch or room or just eat it. I don’t know; cook it first though.
  • Make some fall food. Nothing says fall more than apples, butternut squash, or pumpkins(see previous point)! Make some apple cider or buy some from the farmers’ market. Stir up some butternut squash soup and bake some pie. Then, you can eat-undoubtedly the best part.
  • Use fall spices. Get out that nutmeg, cinnamon, rosemary, and allspice. Sprinkle a little on your fall food. Basically just raid the spice aisle of the grocery store.
  • Get out some fall candles. There are so many different candle scents and you can always find something that suits you. There are scents ranging from nutmeg to falling leaves(whatever that smells like). Also, if you aren’t a candle person you can always enjoy the smell of cooking(see two points above).
  • Go out on a hike. Yes, yes, I know. It is still hot outside. BUT, hear me out, hiking right now is good! The leaves are just starting to fall and change color. It’s a beautiful sight to see. Also, take some pictures while you’re at it.
  • Go camping. Maybe save this one for when the weather gets a little cooler, but camping in fall is the best. It isn’t too hot and it won’t be too uncomfortable to fall asleep. You can actually build a bonfire without worrying about being covered in sweat. Yup, camping in fall is truly the best.
  • Watch some football. Fall is football season. Stay in and watch some NFL or college football. Go out and cheer on the JC team. Do one, the other, or both. Go ahead.

 

 

Ok, so those were my tips to feel more ready for fall. It is still September so if you want to pretend it’s still summer, be my guest. But, if you’re like me, go out and enjoy the start of fall!
