Each season has its perks, but none quite like the fall. The days where every step we take results in pounds of sweat falling off our bodies are long gone. It’s time to relish the crisp, cool weather this time of year brings. It’s time to turn off your air conditioners and to open your windows!

There’s no denying that the weather is perhaps the most anticipated part of the fall, but honestly there are so many more great aspects. Let’s take a look at the 20 reasons we are most looking forward to the fall season.

1. The NFL

Thank the Lord, baseball season is almost over! Finally we can concentrate our efforts on a sport that actually matters. Sunday afternoons take on a whole different meaning in the fall: one filled with wings, fantasy leagues and beer. However, ladies, your boyfriend will be MIA come these fall Sundays.


2. New Styles

Ah, the time to whip out your favorite sweaters and riding boots. This is the time to bust out your best and most fashionable attire. Men — we all know how much you love spandex and fall is the time when ladies are seen sporting it on the reg. Ladies — it’s now time to whip out your favorite oversized hoodies.


3. Less Humidity

Everyone enjoys a nice, sunny summer afternoon, but when temperatures soar to the mid-90s, it’s just one miserable experience. Men and women alike can relish in the cooler weather that the fall brings. We don’t have to worry about sticking to our clothing, literally, or sweating profusely on the subway. Women, we all know what less humidity means to you: better hair days.


4. College Football

Who cares if your alma mater is good or not? This is the time to cheer on your college team. Most every city has a bar dedicated to specific colleges, so grab your jerseys and head down to cheer your team on. College football also gives you a great excuse to visit your old school and relive your glory days at epic tailgates.


5. Cool Nights

Your sleeping experience is almost guaranteed to be better in the fall. Everyone knows how difficult it is to fall asleep when it is hot and muggy in your bedroom. Throw on your favorite sweats that you haven’t seen since February and cuddle up underneath your comforter that you can finally take out of storage.


6. The Interns Leave

For major cities, underage college students fill our favorite happy hour spots and force us to relocate elsewhere. The fall is the time when these kids head back to college and give us back our beloved hot spots.


7. Fall Foliage

Everything is just that much prettier in the fall. Sure, snow is great to look at, but it’s pretty damn inconvenient when you are walking to work. Summer may leave you nice and bronzed, but that doesn’t stop you from dripping sweat after every place you venture to. The changing of the leaves creates beautiful scenery as you walk through most any city.


8. Seasonal Delicacies

Hot apple cider, Pumpkin Spice Lattés from Starbucks, and basically anything pumpkin flavored — enough said.


9. Lower Electricity Bills

Bills, bills and more bills — ain’t nobody got time for that. In the fall, you more than likely aren’t going to be racking up intense electricity bills since the need for AC is long gone.


10. Your Favorite TV Shows Are Back On The Air

The much anticipated season premieres of your favorite television programs are airing in the fall. It’s time to put your Netflix account away, as the best shows are airing at this time.


11. Halloween

Everyone loves a good excuse to get dressed up and to get obliterated. It doesn’t matter how old you are, this holiday doesn’t have an age limit. Plus, we all know you are looking forward to the 13 days of Halloween on ABC Family. #HocusPocus.


12. Labor Day And Columbus Day

tumblr_mp0jl9iLlf1sxqs3ko1_500

Who doesn’t like a good ol’ three-day weekend in consecutive months? Get out of work free card, thank you very much.


13. No Shave November

Shaving, that annoying necessity that you can’t afford to skip during the summer months, becomes more of an option in the fall. Ladies get to trade in their shorts for pants and men all love to participate in Novem-beard.


14. Bathing Suit Season Is Over

tumblr_mfx3gtESqi1s1jj9ro1_500

Cast your diets aside and relish in your favorite foods, as you can just cover yourself up with layers and layers of sweaters. No one will be able to notice the extra five pounds you gained since August and honestly no one cares because they are doing the exact same thing. I mean, come on now, you have 9 more months to get back in shape.


15. Oktoberfest

Another great excuse to get sh*tfaced in costume! Not like we need any more excuses to partake in such regular behavior, but this century old tradition has to be one of the most fun activities of the fall. Bring on the beer.


16. Thanksgiving

tumblr_mdqxcvji4B1qjrms6

This is the one time of the year that everyone comes together with their families to celebrate in unison. Not everyone is fortunate enough to see their relatives multiple times a year, but Thanksgiving is a holiday that brings everyone back together again.


17. Subways Are Bearable

tumblr_mpj7goaS1P1rg4vxco1_500

Everyone knows how horrible it is to travel underground in scorching hot temperatures. It’s one thing to travel via subway in the morning, before the temperature is at its peak, but it’s a far different scenario at the end of the workday. Despite a morning shower and the application of deodorant, every single person smells.


18. Warm Fires

tumblr_mr7237g3dS1railbbo1_500

Whether you are cozying up to a good book or a homemade meal, nothing is quite as serene as hanging by the fire. After a long day at work, this can be just what you need to put your mind at ease.


19. People’s Standards Are Lowered

ShallowHal

No one wants to head into holiday season alone, so people lower their standards to find a partner to share this time with. Ever wonder why there are so many more single people in the summer than the fall? Think about it.


20. Honestly, everything is just that much better in Autumn.
