I love Fall! Seriously, what's NOT to love?!? Need more proof why Fall is the best season? Check out these Carrie Leigh Facts:
The beautiful colors! I feel bad for the color blind, because this is the season where Mother Nature is dressed in her best.
Cooler temperatures. A season where I can be outside and not sweat gets a thumbs up in my book.
The holidays. Columbus Day, Halloween, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Football almost every day. It doesn't get any better!
The clothes. Sweaters, hoodies, vests, adorable boots, hats, scarfs, etc.
It's the perfect season for soup. I love soup!
Quote those Carrie Leigh facts and sound smarter to your friends as you defend the season... or not. lol Or check out these proven and not based on opinion facts (which I guess is the actual definition of "facts"):
According to The Weather Channel, pumpkins are the most craved food during the fall. Although, if you’ve left the house anytime recently, this may not come as a surprise to you.
The yellow and orange colors that are coming actually always exist in leaves but they are overpowered by the abundance of green from chlorophyll.
Red and purple leaves are only that color because of the presence of sugars and sap that are trapped within the leaves.
Weight gain around this time of year may not only be due to comforting fall foods like pumpkin pie and cider (and soup). Researchers have found that lack of vitamin D reduces fat breakdown and triggers fat storage.
