Autumn is here and let’s face it, we’re all pretty pleased to see this season arrive on our doorstep. From the crunchy leaves to the scorching hot chocolates from Costa or Starbucks, there’s nothing about Autumn to really dislike. Well, maybe the weather isn’t always too fine, but you can’t have everything!
But if you’re one of those who is still unsure whether Autumn is one of the best seasons of the year, here are a few other reasons why Autumn is pretty amazing:
All the best TV comes back to our screens this season. X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing, I’m A Celebrity – Get Me Outta Here are to name a few. So there’s no reason for you not to cwtch up in front of the TV with a hot chocolate and get stuck in to some great TV.
Cosy nights in
Coming home from work, flinging your shoes off and cwtching down in your pyjamas for an evening of TV is bliss for a lot of us. With the darker nights approaching, we don’t really feel like doing much when we’ve come home from work or wherever you’ve been. Speaking of darker nights…
This is a good thing, honestly. You could go to bed at 7pm and not be judged. It doesn’t seem unseemly or odd to cwtch down in bed that early. It’s not all that surprising to do something like this that early in the evening.
There’s something beautiful about the leaves changing colours and eventually floating off from the trees into a big pile of leaves which are fun to jump into. One thing about Autumn is that it is aesthetically pleasing on the eye.
You can’t go to a high street store without seeing one hint of tartan and a baggy jumper on show in the sale window. One thing about your clothes at this time of year is that you can go out in your most baggiest jumper and you won’t get judged. We need to stay warm, right?!
Okay, this is probably one of my favourite days of the entire year. Seriously, who doesn’t love a sparkler?! I still write my name in the dark sky to this day and I’m in my mid twenties! Bonfire Night evokes so many happy childhood memories for me. There’s always a public firework display or local bonfire going on somewhere. As long as I see a rocket or a Catherine Wheel, I’m happy!
Now, this day is not everybody’s cup of tea. Some people go all out for it and their houses look like something you’d see in an American horror movie. Others (like myself) like to shut the curtains, unplug the doorbell and pretend not to be at home. Sound familiar?
