CONTEST NOW CLOSED- Let’s Celebrate Change, it’s Favourite Thing About Fall Day!

Hey Community,


Goodbye summer, it’s been swell! Thanks for the pool parties and the tan but now we say hello to fall. If cozy was a season, it would be fall. There’s no better time of year to curl up with a good book, a hot cup of tea, and gaze out the window at the trees. Plus, it’s when Halloween and Thanksgiving, arguably the two best holidays, happen. Here are four reasons why fall might be our favourite season: 


1. The Outdoors are Drop Dead Gorgeous

We dare you to name a prettier time of year than when trees turn from green to brown, yellow, and orange. There’s no need for Netflix when you can binge-watch this foliage. 


2. The Food is Nap-Inducing  

The food this time of year is so good you have to pass out after eating it. We’re talking turkey, stuffing, gravy, pumpkin pie…even listing these foods is making us sleepy. 


3. Warm Drinks Galore

Speaking of food, let’s talk about the drinks. Fall is the best time of year to sip hot chocolate, warm apple cider, or tea. It’s the perfect contrast for that crisp fall breeze. 


4. Back-to-School Season 

There is a magical element to Back-to-School season that you can’t simply ignore. The pure nostalgia of starting a new school year leaves us with fond memories and brings an aura of new beginnings in the air. 


Now we want to hear your favourite thing about fall! Comment below by 12 PM ET on September 10 and tell us what you love most about the fall season. To help spice up your fall wardrobe, we will select three winners at random who will receive a $50 gift card to Cadillac Fairview. Now go outside and watch the leaves change! Contest runs September 3 to September 10, 2019. Read Contest Rules before entering.

Decorating the house for Halloween is always fun. Every year I buy a couple of things on clearance and add them to next years decorations. Way better than decorating for Christmas since you generally don't have to deal with ice and snow.


Also new fall tv shows! Although that really isn't as much of a thing as it used to be.

One of my favourite things about fall is hiking at different locations and conservation areas where there are many varieties of trees.  I really enjoy seeing the foliage change colours and feeling the different textures of leaves when I am walking around.  In September, along the Humber River there are salmon swimming upstream.  It's amazing to watch the large fish jump out of the water.  Each time a fish makes it over a waterfall there are a group of people cheering.  I join in clapping and giggling with delight.  Since the fall season is cooler, I often love drinking a hot chai latte with warm and delicious spices while walking hand in hand with my beloved partner.  Ahhh... fall is amazing.

Thanksgiving dinner! And sweaters... Black Friday is great too 

The best thing about fall is going outside for a hike in the mountains and being surrounded by all these magnificent colors in the trees!
