All things Fall
By Ella Thomas
One of my favorite times of year is upon us once again! Autumn always brings up great memories. From jumping on piles of leaves, to putting together a Halloween costume, I am always super excited when this time of year finally rolls around. There are many reasons why I enjoy Fall.
First of all, it is the time for Halloween. I absolutely adore this holiday. The decorations, the costumes, and the pumpkins - I love it all! We always decorate our house, inside and out, top to bottom. We have used some of the decorations for many years now, and I have to say my favorite is our jester. We won it from a Halloween store raffle, but the only problem is that it is too tall to put in the house or on the porch. It is a nine-foot-tall creepy clown that used to give my brother and me nightmares. Another exciting thing about decorating is the pumpkins. We love to go up to North Georgia to a place called Burt’s Pumpkin Farm. They have some of the biggest and best pumpkins, and I love to bring them home and carve them. Another thing I love about Halloween is the costumes. Whether its trick-or-treating, passing out candy, or going to a Halloween party, I start planning my costume months before Halloween. The best part about Halloween this year… Its on a Saturday!
One of the final things I anticipate this time of year is the wonderful change in weather. I get really excited when it starts to cool down from the endless heat and humidity of summer. The leaves are gorgeous when they begin to change color. And lets not forget the fashions… I get absolutely giddy when its time to break out the scarves, hats, tights, etc- the possibilities are endless!
I hope “y’all” enjoy a fabulous Fall!!
