It's time to trade in your summer hats for thick scarves because it's officially fall. Sept. 23, marks the first day of fall, and fans of the cozy season are taking it to social media to celebrate the beginning of fall. With plenty of orange leaves, oversized sweaters, and bright pumpkins, checking out the themed photos on social media are the quickest way to ring in the season. These first day of fall 2019 tweets will get you in the mood for afternoons filled with pumpkin spice lattes and evenings by the crackling fireplace.
Fall lasts for only three months, so you'll want to get right to enjoying the short period before winter dawns. Since Starbucks started the fall season four weeks early on Aug. 27 this year, fans have already been indulging in a lineup of classic seasonal beverages and treats like the Pumpkin Spice latte, Salted Caramel Mocha, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin, Pumpkin Scone, Pumpkin Spice Madeleines, and Cat Cake Pop. There's also a new drink on the menu called the Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew, which is the first new pumpkin cold coffee beverage since the Pumpkin Spice Latte was introduced in 2003. Made with real pumpkin, the drink is made with cold brew, vanilla, and topped off with real pumpkin and a dusting of pumpkin spice. It's the perfect caffeinated pick-me-up if you're looking for a chilled drink on a fall afternoon.
These festive tweets that have been circling the internet will inspire you to start off the first day of fall with a Pumpkin Spice Latte in hand.

Even celebs like Ellen DeGeneres and Reese Witherspoon got in on the fall fun.
DeGeneres kept it punny, of course, by tweeting, "Happy First Day of fall! I could feel it in the air the moment I woke up. I knew autumnatically." LOL.
Also welcoming the season with a couple "#punkins," Witherspoon shared a pic of herself surrounded by pumpkins while donning a fall-perfect plaid. Two of the gourds in the pic also have some festive jokes, reading, "#SquashGoals" and "Gourds just wanna have fun."
Clearly, the excitement over the first of fall is enough to get almost everyone celebrating. Whether you choose to ring in fall at home with a scary flick and pumpkin pie or outside with the changing colors, there are so many ways to soak in the season (and so many pumpkin puns just waiting to be made). Happy first day of fall!
