Wednesday is the first day of fall. 

Autumn. Autumnal Equinox. Fall.

Whatever you call it, you know that cooler temperatures are near, and leaves will soon change from green to multi-colored hues of red, orange and yellow.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, fall begins "when the sun appears to cross the celestial equator from north to south."

During this time, day and night have about the same hours. Gone are the long days when you can cram more activities into your daylight time.

Fall evokes thoughts of walks through woods, pumpkins, hot chocolate, crisp air, warm jackets. And leaves, and more leaves.
