Fall is many people’s favorite time of year. It’s the time when the weather changes from hot and humid to crisp and cool. Lazy days by the pool turn to Friday night lights, while warm sunny days turn to cool clear nights. Fall is also the start of the school year, which is a lot of people’s favorite time of year. 

As the weather cools, many turn to warm and toasty coffee drinks to comfort them. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are officially here kicking off the Fall season for many coffee drinkers. Lauren Biasco (10) claims, “My favorite fall drink is a pumpkin spice latte because it tastes like pumpkin and pumpkins remind me of fall.” While the pumpkin spice latte mania may be brewing, some people don’t find this fall favorite appealing in taste. Dominique Thomas (10) says, “I don’t like the pumpkin spice latte. I don’t like the flavor and it’s just gross.” There are many drinks for people who aren’t a fan of the pumpkin spice latte including salted caramel mocha, apple cider, or chai tea to bring comfort on the cold and blustery days of fall.

After a long hot and humid summer, one thing many people agree that the colder weather is one of the main reasons fall is a favorite season. “My favorite thing about fall is the crisp weather starting to settle in, ” said Skylar Wirtz (12). The cool fall air is welcoming while being in school because students aren’t hot, sweaty, and sticky while trying to learn. “Another benefit of cooler weather is being able to eat hot soup and drink hot coffee,” says Wirtz (12).  The idea of being cozy follows with the fall season transition, where sweatshirts and jeans are a staple and bonfires are enjoyable on the cool fall nights. 

Football games, homecoming, bonfires, corn mazes, and pumpkin patches make fall the ideal season here at Marian Central. Whether it is cheering so loud that people lose their voice, or making memories in the stands with friends, football games are at the top of the list for favorite fall activities.  The idea of fall and cheering our Hurricanes under the Friday night lights go hand in hand.

The crunch of leaves under feet, or the pumpkin spice candles people burn in their houses, brings many fall flavors, scents, and memories to people. Both Biasco (10) and Wirtz (12) said, “there’s nothing I don’t like about fall.” Whether it’s picking pumpkins at the pumpkin patch, cozying up by a bonfire, or getting lost in a corn maze, fall definitely has something for everyone.
