Autumn is our favorite season here at Heat Holders! It gives us the perfect excuse to break out all our warming products and hibernate in luxury until the sun makes an appearance again next year.
Today, Wednesday 23rd September, is Autumn Equinox which happens when the equator passes the centre of the sun and means that the north and south poles of the earth are not tilted towards or away from the sun; they are perfectly aligned which gives the same amount of daylight in both of the hemispheres. After the autumnal equinox, the days get shorter and the nights get longer, which signifies so many exciting events to come! Here’s to Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year.
One of the most popular ways to see autumn is to appreciate the changing colors of the leaves. Blue Ridge Parkway, New England is one of the country’s most scenic roads and runs for an incredible 470 miles through Virginia and North Carolina. From late September to the end of October, hickory, sassafras, poplar and maple trees look extremely beautiful as their leaves change in color.
