September 23 is the first day of fall in the northern hemisphere when we say Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn. As the temperatures start to dip and the leaves change colors, take some time today to celebrate.
Here are five ways to celebrate the First Day of Fall:
Mull Some Cider
Pumpkin spice lattes are not particularly kid-friendly unless you’re prepared for caffeinated children (and props to you if you are). Mulled apple cider is an easy recipe to make that can also be added to your slow cooker. Not only is this a yummy treat, but it will make your home smell like fall.
