Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year, and you’ll enjoy it even more if you can muster up a few moments to be thankful for what you have. This season offers a lot of opportunities to focus on gratitude, such as pumpkin patches and corn mazes, football games and leaf peeping, getting together with family and friends, and taking in the gorgeous reds, oranges, yellows, and greens of nature around you. Here are 10 things to be thankful for this fall. We hope this list inspires you to slow down, look forward, and show gratitude!
1) Enjoying the changing leaves
One of the best things about fall is changing leaves. As the temperatures start to cool down, the leaves change color, creating a beautiful landscape. If you live in an area with a lot of trees, this is a great time to go for a hike and enjoy the scenery. Even if you don't live in an area with many trees, you can still enjoy the changing leaves by taking a drive or visiting a nearby park.
2) Spending time with friends and family
Friends and family are the best part of fall. There's nothing like spending time with the people you love, whether you're picking apples together or simply enjoying a nice meal. The cooler weather is also a great opportunity to get outside and enjoy all that nature has to offer. Take some time and take it a step further! Show gratitude to your loved ones! Everyone loves to feel appreciated every once in a while. You can write a "thank you" note, treat them to coffee, or anything else that comes to mind!
3) Switching from summer clothes to sweaters
One of the best things about fall is getting to break out sweaters and boots! There's nothing like a cozy sweater on a cool, crisp day. And boots are just so stylish and practical. Fall fashion is something we can look forward to! Prepare to dress cozy and bundle up!
4) The smell of fall-scented candles
What is it about the smell of fall-scented candles that makes them so perfect for this time of year? Is it the warm, spicy scents that remind us of cozy fires and Halloween parties? Or is it the sweet, earthy scents that make us think of crisp autumn days spent outside? Whatever the reason, we can all agree that fall candles are amazing. Here are 5 five of our favorite fall candle scents: pumpkin spice, warm vanilla, teakwood, cinnamon, and crushed leaves!
5) The endless treats
Fall is the best season for baked goods. There's pumpkin bread, apple pie, and caramel apples. Not to mention all of the leftover Halloween candy. What's not to love? Be appreciative of these ingredients, these treats, and whoever gets or bakes them for you!
6) Thanksgiving and Halloween festivities
Thanksgiving is a great time to catch up with loved ones and make new memories. From turkey and stuffing to pumpkin pie, there are so many amazing dishes to enjoy on Thanksgiving. Different families have different traditions and cuisines for this day, but we can all be thankful for this opportunity to be surrounded by good food, good friends, and family! Halloween offers fun friends and family time too. From trick or treating, touring haunted houses, or watching horror movies, there's fall fun for everyone to look forward to!
7) Catching up on all your favorite shows and books
This fall, there's plenty to be thankful for. For starters, you can finally catch up on all your favorite shows and books. Whether it's a new one that everyone has been talking about or an old classic, you will be entertained! And with the cooler weather comes cozy nights spent indoors with your favorite people.
8) Football season
Speaking of TV, sports are starting back up again! Football season is just around the corner. There's nothing like watching a good game on the couch with friends and family. Check out your favorite team's schedule and see if you can get tickets for any games! Either way, the football, food, and friends add up to a great ambiance!
9) A couple more months till winter and more holidays
Thanksgiving, of course, is the biggest holiday in the fall. A time to gather with family and friends, give thanks for all the good in our lives and enjoy a delicious meal. Then there's Halloween, a fun holiday for both kids and adults alike. Dressing up in costumes, going trick-or-treating, and attending Halloween parties are all great ways to celebrate. And last but not least, there's the beauty of fall itself. The leaves are changing color, the weather is getting cooler... It's a wonderful time of year. So whatever your plans are this fall, be sure to take some time to appreciate all the good things in life.
Furthermore, you can look forward to winter, cooler weather, and even more festivities. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, or New Year's - it is a great time for fun celebrations and gratitude.
