r As everyone knows we have entered the Fall or Autumn Season and officially that occurred September 22. The four seasons are determined by our planets orbit around the sun and the tilt of the earth’s axis which shifts the amount of sunlight the Northern and Southern Hemisphere receives. The tilt of the earth’s axis is a very clever design by our creator to spread the warmth of the sun and to establish weather patterns that enable agricultural activity that supports life.

An equinox is a point in the Earth’s orbit when day and night are approximately equal duration all over the planet. With the fall equinox, the hours of daylight in the Northern Hemisphere are becoming shorter each day until the Winter Solstice on December 21, which is the shortest day of the year. After this date, the days start getting longer. There is a lag between the reduced available sunlight and atmospheric temperature. This is the reason that January is typically our coldest month.

Now we are in the harvest season and another reason to appreciate the seasons of the year we are blessed with. We are also blessed with brilliant fall colors to add another element of variety to our lives. Then, there is the end of year celebrations of Thanksgiving and Christmas bringing our families together in thanks for our blessings.
