6 Fun Facts About Autumn

Today finally feels like autumn!  It sure is a chilly day here in Cleveland Heights.  Most of us aren’t complaining after the numerous heat waves we’ve had this past summer.  A warm blanket or a soft hoodie feels great on a day like today!  We can all appreciate the cool down and the beauty that autumn brings, but did you know these 6 fun facts about fall?

  • Squirrels get smarter:  During the fall, when squirrels bury their nuts and seeds, they show a 15 percent increase in the memory center of their brain compared to the rest of the year.
  • Those born in fall are more likely to live longer:  If you were born between September and November you are more likely to live to be 100 than those born any other time of the year.
  • Autumn is good for the economy:  Certain states like New Hampshire and Vermont have millions of out-of -state visitors that come to see the changing of the colors.
  • Autumn used to be called “harvest”:  Until about 1500, autumn was just called “harvest.”  Before city lights, the light from the harvest moon was essential for farmers.
  • Daylight saving time is good for us:  Our bodies love the extra hour of sleep and Americans’ heart attack rate has been known to decrease.
  • Some places never get to see autumn:  Tropical climates, where the weather stays warm, don’t experience fall.
