Today is the day! As you probably know September 23rd is the first day of fall, in this day the autumnal equinox arrives and with this the orange season starts, that’s why in ArtsCase We wanted to do something special for all those Autumn lovers, and we decided to make a list of cool facts that you’ll probably don’t know about this season.
1.The gorgeous red, orange, and yellow pigments in fall foliage are actually there all year.
During the fall, in response to colder temperatures and less light, leaves stop producing chlorophyll, the green pigment that helps capture sunlight to power photosynthesis. As the green fades, the leave’s other pigments shine through, such as orange and yellow carotenoids and vibrant red.
2. The difference between fall and autumn
While Americans typically use the word “fall,” the British use the word “autumn,” though both terms date around the 16th century. Before these terms, the period was called “harvest.”The word “harvest” comes from the Old Norse word haust, which means “to gather or pluck.” As people moved to the cities, “harvest” fell out of use and city dwellers began to use “fall of the leaf,” which was shortened to “fall” to describe the change in season.
3. The meaning behind “autumnal equinox”
The term “equinox” is from the Latin meaning “equal night.
4. Falls Celebrations.
Labor Day, Grandparents Day, Patriot Day, Autumn Equinox, Columbus Day, Halloween, Veterans Day, Remembrance Day, and Thanksgiving. In Germany it’s celebrated the Oktoberfest in Munich. The festival began as part of a crown prince’s wedding celebrations in 1810 and has continued since. About 1.3 million gallons (5 million liters) of beer are poured during the festival.
5.The love Season begins.
Levels of testosterone in both men and women are at their highest in the fall. Scientists speculate the surge may be a result of ancient mating instincts (e.g., the fall “rutting season”) or that decreasing daylight somehow triggers it.
