Autumnal Equinox 2022: The First Day of Fall


September 19, 2022


Loni Shaw


In 2022, the autumnal equinox—also called the September equinox or fall equinox—arrives on Thursday, September 22. This date marks the start of fall in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere.

For those in the Northern Hemisphere, when the Sun crosses the equator going from north to south, this marks the autumnal equinox. This equinoxes provide Earth with roughly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of darkness. Days become shorter than nights as the Sun continues to rise later and nightfall arrives earlier.

Sounds like the perfect time of the year to grab some treats and pull out your ‘Fall Decorations…’ If you don’t have any, go ahead and make some! Purchase a few small pumpkins or grab some local acorns or pine cones if you can! Or go to your local thrift store and grab some ‘Fall colored pillow cases’ or even baskets. Nothing says Fall better than baskets filled with apples or gourds from your local supermarket.

Grab some Boo-Shaw Cookies that make you feel the most like Fall – maybe Cinnamon Bun Pastry Cookies or Vanilla Nut Pastry Cookies and put up or make some ‘Fall Decorations’ for you home.  Enjoy the changing of the seasons!
