Autumn, or “fall*”, is the annual transitional season between the long daylight hours of Summer and the long nights of Winter, and the season opposite of Spring. The word ‘autumn’, from the Latin ‘auctumnus’ with the root meaning of 'to satisfy one's self', is associated with maturity as ripe crops are harvested and preserved for the coming winter, and increasingly cool and rainy weather.

In the high and middle latitudes of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, where the changes of daylight and warmth are most clearly felt, human cultures have developed myths, rites and festivals acknowledging the fruitfulness of Nature and a natural fear of death, to mark the autumn season.

For example, in Greek mythology the autumn and winter seasons are experienced and explained as the mourning of Demeter (Roman goddess Ceres), the goddess of agriculture, to the underground banishment of her daughter Persephone, for six months.

Both Halloween (All Hallow's Eve- the evening before All Saints [hallowed=holy] Day on November 1) and Thanksgiving have become major holidays for Americans, and can find their roots in mythology. The recent holiday of Labor Day, set as the summer season wanes, honors those who produced the manufactured goods.

Astronomically autumn is the season from the autumnal equinox, when the sun 'crosses' the celestial equator, to the winter solstice (sol + stitium= stoppage) when the sun is furthest from the celestial equator and the shortest day of the year.

*The North American use of the English word 'fall' as an alternative word for autumn seems to have roots in the 16th century contraction of the expression “fall of the leaf” to describe the annual falling of leaves from deciduous trees, an expression that the Europeans brought with them to the New World.

Autumnal Equinox, 9-21 or 22

The phenomenon of many deciduous trees changing leaf colors from green to shades of red and yellow is the mark that the growing season is ending. As the daylight hours decrease the leaves no longer have enough solar rays to manufacture the plants food, and the typical fall colors appear as the green chlorophyll is used up.

Columbus Lands, 1492 Giclee Print
Columbus Lands, 1492
Giclee Print

Columbus Day-
2nd Monday in October

The Columbus Day observance was initiated to commemorate the 1492 European ‘discovery’ of the New World and completely ignored the truth that the continent was populated by an estimated 100 million indiginous peoples, and the Europeans as Vikings had documented landings nearly 500 years before Columbus.

Current commerative events are emphasizing the genocide of Columbus' colonial governorship in order to remove Columbus as a popular hero.

The beginning lines of 'To Autumn' by John Keats
poetically captures the season-
Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
  Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
  With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
Robert Browning
• “Autumn wins you best by this its mute / Appeal to sympathy for its decay.”
