Welcome to Fall

Hailey Ruckle, writer

      The fall equinox marks the first day of fall (autumn) in what we call astronomical seasons, when the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator. This year on Monday, September 23, both the Northern and Southern hemispheres  experienced an equal amount of daylight according to www.timeanddate.com this is how our fall (autumn) is experience almost every year.

There are many things to do in  this fall wonderland of colors. When the leaves start to fall and the weather begins to change. The red, yellow and orange start to show up everywhere. Soon enough all the Maple and Birch trees start to have rainbow color leaves. Making warm cocoa and playing in the half dead leaves couldn’t be more fun.

The season of turkey is coming! Get ready for no school, the 27th -29th, Thanksgiving break is coming better than ever. The first ever harvest (Thanksgiving)  was expressed in 1621 in the new world as described www.smithsonianmag.com . Life was a lot harder back in 1621 the pilgrims had to have help with food and to survive . At this harvest 53 pilgrims and 90 natives attended. With all these people they began to eat ham, lobster, clams, berries, fruit, pumpkin, and squash. With all the help throughout all the people. This day is to celebrate unity and thankful for the gifts of the years and many more to come.
