    As Winter will soon approach, take the time to relax smell the fresh crisp air and take in all of what Mother Nature has to offer. My favorite season by far, and truly underrated...HAPYY FIRST DAY OF FALL TO ALL MY FELLOW RJ'ers!

    My favorite season, too! I can't wait to dig in to pumpkin-flavored everything and harvest some of this:

    TheGuyNextDoor saidI just mowed my grass that barley grew since last week and thought... I Love this time of year! The air has totally changed and it feels great to be outside ; )

    Just seems so refreshing. Not too hot or cold.

    I almost got blinded by the sun yesterday while working to the mall. The sun shine in this city is alarming.

    Don't forget our friends in the Southern Hemisphere! We have a lot of Aussie, Kiwi, South African, and Brazilian RJers.

    Happy first day of spring!

    Random trivia:

    -The season originally used to be called harvest. In fact, most Germanic languages have preserved derivatives of the word to mean fall/autumn.

    -Fall is often thought of as a North American word whereas autumn is preferred in other English-speaking countries. However, it's originally a British word. Fall replaced harvest around the time of Shakespeare and was preserved in the US and Canada during early British colonization. The British simply replaced the word with autumn over time.

    It's a bit strange when you think about it because the names for the other three seasons are of Germanic origin. But for some reason the British adopted a word of clear French/Latin origin for a particular season.
