Hello everybody! Some may know that Autumn, or Fall if you are from America, is my favourite season of the year. Today I thought I would share with you some of the reasons why I love Autumn so much, and see if you share any of my favourites!
It becomes acceptable to drink hot chocolate. If I had my way, I would literally drink hot chocolate all year round (which happens frequently in the freezing country of Britain - forget Global Warming, we are Global Freezing over here!*) but nobody agrees with me until late September rolls around, and suddenly I find myself fighting in a coffee queue for a drink.
You can dig out all of your warm scarves, hoodies and thick tights. I'm not gonna lie, I dug these out a while ago but for the people who haven't - what are you waiting for? I love wearing a snuggly scarf to school,
GBBO starts! In case you didn't know, I am slightly obsessed with Great British Bake Off - I mean, it is food. GBBO is one of my favourite series to watch when you want to unwind and relax after school or work etc and just enjoy
Halloween and Bonfire Night. Do I really need to say any more? Well, yes I do! I love Halloween, and although I don't celebrate it as much as other celebrations, I do enjoy making the house look a bit spooky and watching some scary films while eating sweets and chocolate! Oh, and I can't forget carving pumpkins ;) Bonfire Night is the occasion British people tend to celebrate more, and it is one of my favourite times of the year - and no, it is not because of the toffee apples! There are lots of Bonfire Nights going on round where I live and I always like to go to as many as possible and watch all the fireworks while warming up by the fire! Last year, I ended up falling into a pond in my school uniform; but I think we will save that story for another day!
I begin to add things to my Christmas List. Autumn is the time of year that I start to think of things to add to my Christmas list and start getting inspiration for other people's presents. For Christmas this year, I would love one of those Adult Colouring Books and some lovely scented candles! My mum has been asking me what I would like, so I need to put a Christmas list together soon!
