Fall 2013

Everyone has a season they prefer over another. Mine is the warm days, cool nights, bonfires, festivals, holidays and harvests of Fall.

Product: HW4
Fall comes from the old French word "autompne" and was later standardized to the original Latin word "autumnus."  There are a few examples of its use as early as the 12th century, but it became more common by the 16th century.  Before then, "harvest" was the term used to refer to this season.  However, it lost its reference to the time of year and came to refer only to the actual activity of reaping, while "autumn" and "fall" became the reference to the season.

The word "fall" used to name the season can be traced to old Germanic languages with the exact origin unclear. The term came to designate the season in 16th century England. Yet during the 17th century when English emigration to the British colonies in North America was at its peak, the new settler took the English language with them. The term then becoming obsolete in Britain, and became a more common term in North America.

Association with the transition from warm to cold weather, and its related status as the season of the primary harvest, has dominated its theme with popular images. Holidays during the fall include Halloween in October, and Thanksgiving in November.  Cornucopias, pumpkins, colorful leaves, scarecrows, turkeys, ghosts and many other images have come to be associated with Fall and the holidays.
