Fall season brings change

Emma Decker, Staff writer

The official marker of fall is September 21, but it’s no secret that everyone begins fall festivities before that. Haunted houses, carving pumpkins, drinking hot apple cider–the list goes on and on. Families come together to enjoy the holidays of fall, while relishing in the lovely weather that comes along with it. 

Through the festivities and love that comes with the fall season, so does change. 2020 has undoubtedly been a hard year for countless people and their families. This month marks seven months of tightly kept rules regarding the coronavirus, which has already shifted the once considered “normal” lifestyle off  balance. Now, within the fall season, many of those directly impacted by the virus are taking back their lost months. 

Other than the very noticeable change within the world over the pandemic, fall causes many to take up new habits and improve themselves before the end of the year. Change doesn’t always completely redesign people and their mentalities but to adjust and adapt to their current surroundings and situations. Everyone knows that in times like these, that’s certainly needed. 

Some use autumn as inspiration for new hobbies to show off to their friends over the holidays. Cooking, baking, sewing, and even new workout programs are all commonly picked up around this time of year. With some quarantines still in place, there’s no better time! Bake a pie for Thanksgiving or maybe sew a new sweater for an ugly Christmas sweater competition. Whatever it may be, fall is one of the best times to start. 

Fall comes in different ways to everyone. Some just like the colors, others the activities. However the season may appear, autumn is a great time of year to get together with family to enjoy the change.
