Fall, also known as “autumn,” occurs right after summer and before winter. It begins on the Autumnal Equinox, which is when the sunset and sunrise are about twelve hours apart anywhere in the world. The season ends on the Winter Solstice. Days in the fall get shorter and temperatures begin to drop. In the northern hemisphere, fall takes place between mid-September and mid-November.

It is also the time when most schools begin their new school year.
