Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

When did your autumn decorations go up? Be honest. Mine started going up the very first day of September, and they’ll be no stopping them until just before Halloween.

Personally, to me, the month of September is basically Halloween Eve, and I’m not the only one who feels that way about fall. However, the first official day of autumn wasn’t until this week, the 21st. Now, it is officially the autumn season.

While I might have gotten a little ahead of myself preparing for the autumn season, now that it’s official, many others are doing the same. Fall isn’t just about putting out cute pumpkins and other autumn-colored knick-knacks, it’s also about cozy sweaters, fall-scented candles, baking, wearing cute scarves and beanies, and going for hayrides or visiting pumpkin patches.

Of course, if you live in a warmer climate, autumn might not look exactly like the Pinterest boards we’ve envisioned.

One woman from the South of the United States made a hilarious video that accurately depicts what it’s like to be someone who loves fall but who also lives in a warm climate.

As she goes about preparing her home for autumn with all the dedication of someone who loves fall, the minute that she steps out of her door with her scarf and a pumpkin spice latte, the reality of hot weather hits her. And apparently, it’s a Southern thing.

She shares, “Everyone knows how Southerners act when the calendar tells us it’s Fall. We pull out sweaters and blankets and fuzzy slippers – only to walk outside and find it’s still 80 degrees outside. Sometimes, a true fall doesn’t arrive until late November or early December and, then, it lasts only a week or so.”
