Folks, we are just two days away from autumn. Also known as fall. Also known as one of my all-time favorite seasons of the year. Welcoming autumn means a lot of things to a lot of people. For some, it means welcoming shorter days and cooler temperatures. For others, it means gearing up to enjoy fall festivals, hay mazes, pumpkin patches, and apple orchards. For some, fall means browns, tweeds, jackets, and sweaters. And for others, fall can’t be captured in words and instead is captured by that certain indescribable something in the air.
And as we look ahead to fall, we can be grateful for the beautiful, vibrant foliage that awaits us. We can be grateful for the distinctive and spectacular fall-focused activities, foods, and experiences that we will get to enjoy during this season. And, of course, we can express an attitude of gratitude for the summer adventures that are drawing to a close. In honor of this lovely time of year, enjoy a few laughs with Victor Borge and Robert Merill as they welcome fall and all of those autumn leaves.
