  • All about Autumn
    by Tony Abrego
    October 2006
    Autumn is one of the four temperate seasons, the transition from summer into winter. In the temperate zones, autumn is the season during which most crops are harvested, and deciduous trees lose their leaves. It is also the season where days rapidly get shorter and cooler, the nights rapidly get longer.

    . Every autumn across the northern hemisphere, diminishing daylight hours and falling temperatures induce trees to prepare for winter. In these preparations, they shed billions of tons of leaves. In certain regions, such as our own, the shedding of leaves is preceded by a spectacular color show. Formerly green leaves turn to brilliant shades of yellow, orange, and red. These color changes are the result of transformations in leaf pigments.

    When you think of autumn you usually feel Halloween is just around the corner. Halloween is an observance celebrated on the night of October 31, most notably by children dressing in costumes and going door to door collecting candy. It is celebrated in much of the western world, though most common in the United States, Puerto Rico, Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom, Canada, and with increasing popularity in Australia and New Zealand.

    I found some really cool Halloween sites I'd like to share with you:
