6 Ways to celebrate the first day of fall

We made it! We made it through summer. The soaring temperatures, the early mornings and long nights, the sun burns and beach trips. Now it is finally fall. Football, cooler temperatures, pumpkin-spice everything. It’s a little different from the original intent of the Fall Equinox, which celebrates the end of harvest and the beginning preparations for winter. It’s no less reason to celebrate through and here are a few tips how:

Make a seasonal display

Stores should be well stocked with fall décor by now. Try making a leaf wreath, grab some decorative gourds and make your house fall beautiful.

Visit a local orchard

Now is the time for apple picking! Check out your area for local orchards and get to picking. Afterwards, drum up some great recipes to use those apples – whether it’s applesauce, apple pie, apple butter. The Internet is full of delightful ways to use up those apples!

Go to a pumpkin patch

Speaking of picking some fall beauties – pumpkin patches should be in full swing by now. Whether you’re looking for a classic orange or are more into the heirloom gourds, now is the time to get your patch on!

Take a nature hike

Cool fall temperatures and changing leaves make for the perfect opportunity to enjoy nature. Scout out your local parks and recreation trails and start hiking! There’s nothing better than tramping through the woods and enjoying some crisp, fresh fall air! Grab a coffee or hot chocolate after to really get in the fall mood!

Star gaze

The Fall Equinox means the days are going to start getting shorter. Which means you don’t need to stay up late to enjoy the stars. Grab a cup of hot chocolate and a blanket and gaze at the star-studded night sky.

Prepare for the holidays

They’ll be here before we know it! And preparing for the holidays is more than just decorating and shopping for presents. If you’re a business owner, you know that the holiday season is a crazy time. Plan ahead by considering a live answering service. Have a team of virtual receptionists manning your phones and freeing you to focus on the holidays!
