9 Reasons You Should Be Excited For Fall

Alas, fall has finally sprung upon us. Time to say goodbye to scorching heat, sweaty necks and pesky critters. It's now time to embrace the perfect combination of cool, crisp weather, steamy hot drinks and an excuse to spend your weekend watching Netflix.

1. Sweater Weather (The Best Kind of Weather)

Many people seem to neglect the fashion advantages that come along with autumn. It's neither blistering hot, like summer, nor is it frigid and unbearably cold, like winter. But best of all, it's nothing like spring, where you can't decide whether wearing boots and a t-shirt is appropriate fashion attire. Fall is where you can strut your stuff. Cozy scarves, gorgeous pea coats and knit sweaters. What more could you really ask for?

2. New Seasons Of Your Favourite TV Shows

It's the moooost wonderful time of the year! Hm, okay, not quite. But pretty damn close, I'd say. After patiently waiting months (more like, YEARS) for your TV show to begin, you are entitled to ditch your Friday night plans, and catch up on new episodes.

3. Move Over, Baseball! The NBA, NFL and NHL Are Back!

No offence to all those die-hard baseball fans, but nothing compares to the epic adrenaline rush that goes hand in hand with ice-cold hockey arenas, sipping hot chocolate while sitting in the bleachers at the football stadium, or watching Lebron face the Heat.

4. Merry Movember, Y'all


That's right, ladies and gentlemen, it's almost time for No Shave November. Where the men are looking as dapper as ever, (mustaches, beards, and all), and the ladies swooning from left to right. But most importantly, a month where a tremendous amount of awareness is raised for men's health issues, including prostate cancer. Check out the American Cancer Society's webpage regarding the issue for more information.

5. Seasonal Pumpkin Goodness

Nothing beats fall delicacies. The pumpkin, cinnamon, and all things alike, seasonal goodness. The sweet, lingering aroma of apple strudel, pumpkin spice snicker doodles and rhubarb pie, can unite the entire world population. And for all you PSL lovers, Starbucks has an endless supply of sweet, pumpkin-y goodies waiting for you.

6. The Breathtaking Scenery

Ah, fall, the final burst of nature's beauty before winter leaves everything looking dry and brittle. Nothing compares to a brisk, afternoon walk in the park, as your every breath is enchanted by the vibrant orange, red and yellow sights.

8. Hallow's Eve


You're never to old for Halloween. An endless supply of candy, chocolate and an excuse to dress up as whatever your 4 year old heart desires. Besides, who doesn't love Depp in Edward Scissorhands? *sigh*

9. An Excuse For An Extra Cup Of Hot Coffee


Because cuddling up with a good book, or re-watching Breaking Bad, with your favourite hot drink in hand, is the epitome of perfection. Hot chocolate, hot toddies, cinnamon lattes, Chai tea... The list goes on and on...
