Top Four Fall Facts
Fact #1: While the British use the term "autumn", Americans often refer to this time of year as "fall." Both terms first appeared in the 16th century; however, the earlier term was "harvest."
Fact #2: The "harvest moon," which happens when the full moon is closest to the autumnal equinox, is the reason why fall was given the name "harvest." This moonlight, which existed before artificial illumination, was crucial to a successful harvest.
Fact #3: Researchers have discovered that a lack of vitamin D inhibits fat breakdown and promotes fat accumulation, thus a weight gain during the fall and winter months. So the weight gain may not be just the result of comfort foods like pumpkin pie and cider.
Fact #4: Pumpkins are the food that people yearn for the most throughout the fall, according to The Weather Channel.
