How Long Until Autumn
Autumn which is also known as Fall in the United States is the season after Summer and before Winter. Autumn begins in the Northern Hemisphere with the autumnal equinox that comes in September, it ends in December with the winter solstice. Autumn runs from the autumnal equinox in March to the winter solstice that comes in June in the Southern Hemisphere.
Autumn is typically a time for harvesting most crops in many places that lay in temperate zones. It is characterized by the loss of leaves by Deciduous trees (i.e. trees that lose their leaves every year). They usually turn yellow, red or brown. Also, in most countries, Autumn/Fall indicates the start of a new school year. In the UK, 'Autumn term' has been named to be the period between September and the end of December.
While there might not be a lot of notable holidays in Autumn, the season is associated with a number of popular events from country to country. The following are a few of the Holidays and Events associated with the Autumn season:
During Autumn, many cultures hold harvest festivals. These festivals were practiced by people from the US and from Canada. There's also the Jewish Sukkot holiday that has a full moon harvest festival of tabernacles. The Harvest culture is also popular in North America, China and in India, they were organized to celebrate ripe foods gathered in the wild.
Halloween happens in Autumn for locations in the northern hemisphere. This holiday has enjoyed massive campaigns in terms of promotion from television, film, book, home decoration, fashion and confectionery industries.
