My Favorite Fall Traditions

Pumpkin patches, apple picking, and sipping warm drinks by the fire in a favorite sweater are just a few of the many pleasures autumn has to offer. Fall is my favorite season, as you all probably know by now, and there are so many things that make it onto my "to-do" list once fall rolls around each year. Incase you're unsure how to get into the autumnal spirit this year (though highly doubtful), I've created a list of my favorite fall traditions.

Usually, the first thing we do once late September / early October hits is make a trip to the local apple orchard and pumpkin patch. This place is the best. There's the apple orchard, the pumpkin patch, and then an old barn fixed up into a mini "store" with locally made and grown autumnal goodies such as candles, artwork and décor, apple cider slushies, soap, and many other things. I try to limit myself to two fall candles each year because I know it's really easy to go overboard, so I usually buy one or two of the *cutest ever* pumpkin spiced candles in a pumpkin-shaped glass jars. This makes for a great start to the season.

I also love making mulled apple cider on the stove because tastes absolutely delicious and it makes the house smell amazing. Check out the recipe here. I'm really not too much a pumpkin spiced latte kind of person, but pumpkin spiced coffee and spiced chai teas, now those hit the spot. Speaking of coffee and spicy, warm tea, I also love getting out and traveling more during the autumn season to favorite coffee shops near and far because it's just so pretty out. And of course you can't forget the Halloween movies and shows: Halloweentown, Hocus Pocus, The Munsters, Addams Family, Practical Magic, and anything Tim Burton. And while Harry Potter doesn't necessarily scream "Fall," it's the perfect time of year to have a HP marathon. But so is every other time of the year if we're being honest.

Once Halloween grows closer, I start incorporating the spookier traditions. I'm a big history buff and I find the paranormal really interesting so I love taking "haunted" guided tours around different cities. Whether the stories are true or just old folklore, it's fun and spooky nonetheless. This year, we have a really exciting trip planned for October. I can't wait to bring you guys along via YouTube channel. There are so many ways you can get into the autumnal spirit. What's your favorite?
