Eight Easy Ways to Celebrate the Autumnal Equinox


The air outside is getting a little chillier these days and on the first official day of autumn, it's a great time to get in the right mindset before your local greenery erupts into a rainbow of yellows, oranges and browns (unless, you're in the southern hemisphere).
