Summer is coming to a close and we're really looking forward to the fall. Days are getting shorter, nights are getting colder, and if you live in BC you know we're going to be seeing a lot more rain. But that's ok, because there's a lot of good reasons to celebrate this seasonal transition. Check out SpeedWash's Top Ten Things We Love About Fall (in no particular order).
1. Leaves Changing Colours
One of the most beautiful things about autumn is when the leaves change colours and fall to the ground creating one of the most amazing natural wonders. Just look at this picture! Combinations of red, yellow, orange, with hints of brown. It's candy to the eyes. Speaking of candy....
Halloween, everyone's favourite non-stat holiday! You get to dress up in costumes, you get to eat a ton of candy, and if you're a kid you get a bunch of candy for free! One of the most fun times of the year, some we really like at SpeedWash.
3. The return of NHL Hockey
If you're a Canadian once the summer ends, you count down the months and days until our nation's favourite pastime restarts the upcoming season. We're pumped to see hockey in our TVs again!
4. Pumpkin Everything
When you think if fall, you think of pumpkins. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spiced lattes, even pumpkin ale (please drink responsibly). The possibilities with pumpkin is endless and there are a ton of pumpkin recipes you can use this fall season.
5. Sweater Weather
We love shorts and flip flops as much as the next guy, but we're good with having to switch those for sweaters and jeans. Time to bust out some new sweaters, maybe a pea coat, and scarf. It's comfortable and fashionable. Time to start dressing for the weather.
6. SpeedWash Langley Grand Opening
This is our personal number one pick for our favourite part about fall and that's the official grand opening celerbation of SpeedWash Langley.

What more needs to be said about Thanksgiving? Celebrations with family and friends, amazing food, and good times. Thanksgiving is most definitely up there as one of our favourite family holidays right up there with Christmas.
8. Fall TV
More and more people these days are watching less and less TV. But with the way fall weather is in the Lower Mainland, when your day is done you just want to put up your feet and relax. Besides sports that will be dominating TV networks, there is also a huge list of of new shows being put up on Netflix and traditional TV networks for you to enjoy.
9. Inside Time
Watching TV is an indoor activity for the fall, but there is so much more you can do during the rainy days inside. Take up a new hobby, read a book you've been wanting to finish. Our personal favourite if you have a fireplace, set that thing up, enjoying some good music, and having good conversations with your loved ones.
10. Warm Drinks
We did already talk about pumpkin spiced lattes in this post, but there are so many other warm drinks that are best enjoyed in the fall. Apple ciders, hot chocolates, and another fall favourite salted caramel lattes!
