Fall is the best season. Whether you call it fall or autumn or just that time of year when everything is just right, I think we can all agree on that. But some of us love fall more than others. While the average person will enjoy a nice pumpkin spice latte and a walk in the park as the trees change colors, others live and breathe all things fall. Yes, fall can be a complete and total obsession.
If you break out your sweaters the second September rolls around, if you think of apple picking as a competitive sport, and if you live for football season and tailgating… you just might be a little obsessed with fall.
If you do all that and spend months prepping your Halloween costume, deck your halls with pumpkins and cinnamon-scented candles, and watch a new horror film every night, you might be totally obsessed with fall. Does that sound at all like you? If so, chances are you live these other signs you’re obsessed with fall, too.
Some people think picking your own apples is a weird way to spend a Saturday afternoon, but you know it’s insanely satisfying. Plus, freshly-picked apples make the best apple pie.
Most people dread the day when they have to break out their cardigans, scarves, socks, and light jackets. But you know layering only adds to your fall style.
You don’t just drink pumpkin spice lattes — for you PSL is life. And it goes beyond a basic latte. You’ll eat pumpkin spice muffins, pumpkin spice ravioli and pumpkin spice soup. Heck, you know practically every pumpkin spice product in existence.
The autumnal equinox, better known as the first day of fall, means all those wonderful fall things are back. Cool weather, long, cozy nights and that certain fall smell that only comes during this time of year are worth celebrating in your opinion.
Your favorite genre of movie is definitely horror. You look forward to the new frights every year and love to rewatch classic horror films like “Halloween,” “Carrie” and “Nightmare on Elm Street.”
Sandals are kind of gross when you think about it; your feet are so close to the ground. Boots are the ultimate cozy and comfy footwear, and you have several pairs (with fuzzy socks to match).
You head to your nearest Yankee Candle near the end of every summer (which in the retail world is, like, July) and scoop up all the pumpkin, apple, and forest scents you can. A candle that smells like cranberry chutney? Heck yes!
Once September rolls around, your standard uniform is the sweater. It doesn’t matter that it’s actually still 84 degrees outside. You’re all about that wool life.
The rich reds, the illuminating golden shades, and even the crisp brown and orange hues are nature’s most serene offerings. You make pilgrimages to go leaf peeping every year and you know the best town for seeing fantastic fall foliage in your state.
Your favorite team is back on the field, and that means one thing: It’s tailgating time. A great game day can only be improved by beers, brats and buddies. And the truest sign you’re obsessed with fall? You know these obsessions are only start of the best things about fall.
