Fall is such a magical season! Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, crunchy leaves, Halloween, beautiful sunsets and getting to crack out your pumpkin carving skills…. what’s not to love! It’s one of the BEST seasons to experience in the USA and here are our top 5 reasons why you must experience Fall as an Au Pair in America!
1. THE COLOURS!
Everything about Fall is beautiful… the sunsets, the trees, fallen leaves, chestnuts and so much more! Fall will give you SO much Instagram worthy content (no filters needed), you’ll have your #Throwbacks sorted for the next year!
2. PUMPKIN FLAVOURED EVERYTHING!
From the almighty classic… the Pumpkin Pie, to pumpkin flavoured cupcakes, pop tarts, Oreos, Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream and our favourite… the Pumpkin Spiced Latte! You’ll be able to find a pumpkin version of ALL your fave tasty treats! Don’t like Pumpkin? Do not fear, it’s also the season when caramel makes its comeback! Anyone for salted caramel apples?!
3. HOLIDAY SEASON IS HERE!
Fall marks the start of Holiday Season in the USA. If you haven’t realised by now, Halloween and Thanksgiving in the U.S are kinda a big deal… and they’re both holidays that everyone can get involved in… you, your host parents, your host kids and even the family dog! You’ll get to perfect your pumpkin carving skills, spend months planning the BEST Halloween costume,you’ll get to see the excitement on your host kids’ faces when you take them trick or treatin’ and collect obscene amounts of candy, eat a feast of delicious dishes, tune in to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade! What are you most thankful for this year?
The temperatures are starting to drop and you can finally get out all your favourite cosy sweaters (and probably buy a few new ones too) and pretty much live in them for the next 3 months! Check out this chunky DIY blanket – you won’t even need to worry about knitting needles… you just use your arms! Amazing!
5. HARVEST TIME!
A trip to the farm with your family and friends is a must for any autumn lover. Pumpkin or apple picking, playing hide and seek in seemingly endless corn fields, or some funnel cake from the local harvest festival… get outside and soak up all the magic of this wonderful season!
