About Fall / Autumn
Sept 18 : 04 days to Fall

Did you know that the word autumn comes from the French word, automne?

The word came into common usage around the 16th century, before which "harvest" was used to refer to this time of year. The use of harvest fell out of popularity as people gradually began living in towns and working the land became less common.

Did you know that Americans colloquially refer to the season between summer and winter as "Fall"?

While Brits prefer the more scientific terms "Autumn"!
