Autumn Season


Enjoy the autumn peace

Temperatures gradually drop during the transitional season between summer and winter.

In the US, the season is frequently referred to as fall because leaves start to fall from the trees around that time.

In the Northern Hemisphere, autumn is typically defined as the time between the autumnal equinox (when day and night are equal in length) on September 22 or 23 and the winter solstice (when the year’s shortest day occurs) on December 21 or 22.

In the Southern Hemisphere, autumn is typically defined as the time between the March 20 or 21 and June 21 or 22. Only in middle and high latitudes does the autumn temperature transition from summer heat to winter cold occur; in equatorial regions, temperatures typically fluctuate little throughout the year. Autumn is only very briefly present in the polar regions.

In many cultures, autumn has been marked by rites and festivals centered around the season’s significance in food production, just like the other seasons. The concept of autumn is associated with the harvesting of crops in European languages. In order to prepare for the upcoming winter, animals gather food in the fall, and those with fur frequently develop thicker coats. To escape the lowering temperatures, many birds migrate toward the Equator.

Indian summer is a typical autumn occurrence in the central and eastern United States as well as in Europe. It is a time of unseasonably warm weather that occasionally occurs in late October or November.
