Fall-ing Into the Season


Fall or its more aesthetic name, autumn, is the season of Rom-Coms, pumpkin spice, crisp air, and colorful trees. This blissful three-month period marks the transition from beach days to snow days. Fall is arguably the best season with its cozy nights, holidays, and endless activities. At Blessed Trinity, fall is the time of football, school dances, and studying. 

A major appeal for the season stems from the weather. Mrs. Davies, a beloved English teacher, reveals that her favorite aspect of fall “is the weather because I am tired of the sweltering heat.” Additionally, Ryan Cole, a senior on the lacrosse team, expresses that the cold weather coming in brings him joy because it allows for a change in his wardrobe. The change in fashion that autumn fosters is another popular attraction towards the season. Laura Nicolosi, a senior who participates in drama and Trinitones, says her favorite part of fall is “the cool weather and being able to wear leggings and sweatshirts.” 

Fall brings a major change in the world around us. As leaves turn bright colors and begin to drop, one can see God’s creation at its finest. The beauty of autumn scenery is for everyone to enjoy but especially as religious individuals. Nicolosi recalled her favorite fall memory as “[going] on St. Ann’s fall retreat because it is beautiful up in Covecrest during the fall and I got to build my relationship with God.” Davies voices that God is seen in the fall with “people coming together for holidays.” 

This leads to the debate of which fall holiday reigns superior. Halloween or Thanksgiving. Though each holiday is special in its own way, the people have spoken. Cole gives an assertive answer, “Halloween because of candy” and the enjoyment of “dressing up as scary monsters and terrorizing my brother.” Davies agrees on Halloween since “it is fun for kids, and I love seeing the community and neighbors.” Candy and decor are the common denominators for the love of Halloween. Davies loves the fact that the holiday allows for neighborhoods to “get really into decorating” and build a sense of holiday spirit and joy for the children of the community. 

Fall opens up endless possibilities of activities that the community can participate in. Blessed Trinity’s football team is a great pastime during the fall season. Cheering on the Titans is a favorite among the student body, which one can witness through the lively student section throughout the entirety of the season.  Davies loves going to fall football games “especially if it’s chilly and I have to bundle up and get some hot chocolate while watching the game.” Outside of school life, having bonfires and making s’mores is a classic way to spend fall evenings. Corn mazes, apple picking, pumpkin patches, and haunted houses are great ways to get out of the house and enjoy the season.

With fall starting on September 22, the Titans can’t wait to see what this season brings. Let the countdown begin!
