I decorate our house and also change the candles to Fall scents.  This year we are also hoping to get the chance to take a ski lift tour of the mountains.  Love everything about Fall!

At some point we'll take a day to gather apples from various abandoned orchards in the area, then make gallons of apple cider for free.

We'll decorate the house and participate in free fall activities.

I absolutley loved this list,.  Fall is one of the best times of the year.  I love the outdoors and festivals.  Two of my other guilty pleasures are pumpkin spice coffee and fall candles burning at all times!

At the end of the day (especially on a Friday or Saturday night, when things are a bit slower), I like to curl up with a spicy cup of tea and read a Stephen King novel.  Better still if I light a pumpkin spice scented candle in the room.  Stephen King -- you are my literary boyfriend!  zombie

we light fall smelling candles, decorate the house with fall articles, go to lots of football games, jump in the leaves and sit out in the cool air with a pumkin spiced latte.

As of September 01 we made the switch to fall scents in the automatic air freshener sprayer and the outlet plugins. We have also begun to burn our fall scented candles and incense- pumpkin, apple spice, etc. Our home (Coco and I) is decorated in the Halloween motif year round as that is our favorite time of year and my son's birthday is on Halloween.
