The fallidays

So Home Depot's latest commercial talks about "The Fallidays." At first, I rolled my eyes, and thought, "How dumb! They're trying to shove holiday stuff down our throats earlier every year, what a sick ploy!"  But, with some recent reflection, I do like the name. I love fall, and I love October, so yes I will celebrate the Fallidays in my own way.

For me this time of year means Thanksgiving is coming in a couple of weeks here in Canada. I love Thanksgiving and the beauty of it. A positive holiday where everyone celebrates the same thing - being thankful. It helps me reflect on what I truly am thankful for.

This time of year also means that my birthday and Halloween are coming up at the end of the month. I do enjoy celebrating my birthday, and I've always LOVED having an excuse to dress up which is one thing I love about teaching - Spirit Days! An excuse to dress up!

I love pretty much everything about fall:
- The temperature is perfect for me - not too hot and not too cold, and little to no humidity!
- I love the colours, and I love that the days are getting shorter, but not too short yet (ie. the kids are going to bed more easily because it's dark out!).
- I love the activities going on at school - Thanksgiving and fall crafts and activities are fun!
- And who can resist pumpkin flavoured anything!

So there you have it, some more of the great little things in life!
