Basic, "schmasic." If loving fall is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
Add a puppy to a leaf pile, and you've got yourself a pretty good fall day.
Pumpkin Spice Cheerios confetti sounds like a delightful way to ring in the season.
All. The. Leaves.
I want to go to there.

Then, of course, there is the No. 1 reason that makes this season so dang delightful (and delicious): pumpkin spice.
This is an easy question to answer. Yes, it's all pumpkin, all. Day. Long.
Here's a checklist of literally everything that makes fall the actual most wonderful time of the year.
While fall and football are pretty much the OTP (one true pairing) of the season, make sure you don't sleep on the September and October Major League Baseball (MLB) action. The MLB Postseason is coming, people.
If you want to learn a little bit more about the autumn equinox, you can really become a student of the season by learning about how the autumn equinox on Sept. 22, 2018 and the Harvest Moon on Sept 24 can affect your spiritually. It turns out that the Harvest Moon affects you more internally — like making "polarizing emotions" come to the surface — and the autumn equinox is about bringing external balance where the "day lasts just as long as the evening."
Really, there are endless reasons to make fall your favorite season. So, grab yourself a PSL, round up some firewood for the coziest bonfire ever, and start figuring out which one of your fuzzy sweaters will be your new go-to for fall 2018. Happy fall, y'all!
