Things to Do in the Fall Season

Saying there’s a seasonal change in the year is nice in that it breaks up the year. It gives you things to look forward to doing that’s related to that part of the year. Stuff that you do each year that have become traditions, and new things you are wanting to accomplish and experience. Fall season is my favorite, with the changes of colors in the leaves, and my birthday month of October.
