Curried Coconut Chicken Soup 5 Fascinating Facts About Fall
About Fall 5 FASCINATING FACTS JUST BECAUSE SUMMER IS OVER, that doesn’t signal an end to fun. How about those Halloween parties, sweater weather, and football season? The list goes on and on. 1. It was originally called “harvest.” The reasons for that should be fairly obvious. In a world that was far more agricultural, the season was defined by the harvesting of crops. It’s also a reference to the harvest moon, which was essential to farmers during the season. The names “autumn” and “fall” have no known origins, but fall is used almost exclusively in America. 2. Fall babies tend to be impressive. Not only does the world’s most common birthday, October 5, land in fall, but those babies have built an impressive resume. The British Department for Education found that they tend to do better in school and also tend to live longer. In fact, fall might be the most interesting season of them all. Here are five facts you probably didn’t know about the season.
3. Weight gain is most common in the fall. It’s not only the Halloween candy or Thanksgiving turkey. Researchers believe it’s primarily caused by lower levels of vitamin D. As the days shorten and temperatures drop, we tend to get less sun. It’s another rea- son to be careful about diet and exercise this season. 4. Autumn is good for the economy. “Leaf peeping,” which is a slang term for fall foli- age tourism, is more than just a funny name. It’s also a $3 billion industry in New England alone. So, if you thought winter and summer were the only seasons that brought along seasonal tourism spikes, you thought wrong. 5. People fall in love more in the fall. Men and women’s testosterone levels tend to spike in the autumn, which makes women even more attractive to men than in the sum- mer months. A data study on Facebook also found that more people change their rela- tionship status from “single” to “in a relationship” during the fall than any other season.
