The Real Reason You Love Fall So Much

The picture above is of my street last fall and to the delight of those of us who just can’t wait for sweater weather and pumpkin spice season… fall is finally here!

If you’re low-key obsessed with all things fall like I am, why do we like it so much?  The psychological reason, they say… comes down to two things – nostalgia and coziness.  They say we tend to hype up fall because it’s associated with events and traditions that make us happy… yeah, football, Halloween, pumpkin patches, bonfires, etc.

Experts say to combat the anxiety many of us are feeling this year especially, we’re going to look to fall for those feelings of comfort, belonging, and safety.  All of that makes a ton of sense to me, but I just don’t get how it can already be fall.  I mean we haven’t even had St. Patrick’s Day yet 🙂
