Fall Facts.........

Today, here are just a few interesting facts about Fall. Enjoy this beautiful season. 
September 22 is the autumnal (fall) equinox. There are two equinoxes each year and the other is in March at the start of spring. On this date the day and night are each about the same length. The term equinox comes from the Latin for “equal night”. One of the visible signs of fall is the changing color of the leaves. This happens because photosynthesis stops during this period so leaves do not stay green. Favorite fall fruit and vegetables include apples, spinach, squash, bell peppers and, of course, pumpkin.The custom of bobbing for apples originates from Roman times. 
Evergreen trees remain green through the winter because they have waxy leaves which do not freeze.
Till next time......
