It’s the Autumn Equinox
Welcome to the first day of Fall 2012!
Today is the Autumn Equinox when the day and the night are exactly the same length. Now the nights will start getting longer, temperatures will grow cooler, and leaves will turn red and gold and fall to the ground.
That also means the holidays are fast approaching. Here's the count:
- Days until Halloween - 38
- Days until Thanksgiving - 60
- Days until Christmas - 93
And remember: "Never jump into a pile of leaves with a wet sucker." - Charlie Brown's friend Linus
