Interesting Facts

The fall season, also known as autumn, is heralded by the cooling temperatures and the dramatic transformation of foliage into vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow, a process driven by shorter days and declining sunlight. 

This picturesque scenery is the result of chlorophyll (which gives leaves their green color) breaking down, allowing other pigments in the leaves to become visible.

Fall is also a significant time for harvests, with many cultures around the world celebrating it through various festivals, such as the Mid-Autumn Festival in China, dedicated to moon worship and lunar observation. 

Additionally, the autumnal equinox, occurring around September 22nd or 23rd, marks one of two points in the year when the length of day and night are nearly equal, signaling the official start of the fall season in the Northern Hemisphere.
