Answers to the autumn season trivia:
Sources include,

Where does the word autumn come from?
The word autumn comes from the French autompne, from the Latin autumnus, whose deeper roots are obscure. It’s first recorded in English as early as the late 1300s—notably, both Chaucer and Shakespeare used it in their works.

Today, speakers of American English commonly use both fall and autumn to refer to the season, though fall became more common in the US by the late 1800s. Speakers of British English largely use autumn or the autumn season.

Why is the season called fall?
Recorded use of the word fall as the name of the third season of the year comes from as early as the 1500s. The name is thought to originate in the phrase the fall of the leaf, in reference to the time of year when deciduous trees shed their leaves. The name of its inverse season, spring, is thought to come from the phrase spring of the leaf—the time when everything is blossoming.

The name fall was commonly used in England until about the end of the 1600s, when it was ousted by autumn.

What is the autumn equinox?
Often referred to as the September equinox because it occurs around the end of September each year.  In the northern hemisphere, the date marks the end of summer and beginning of autumn. In the southern hemisphere, it marks the first day of spring. The sun is exactly above the equator causing day and night are to be equal in length.

What is another name for this season (Hint: associated with farming)?

The earliest known name for the season in English is harvest. It comes from the Old English word hærfest, of Germanic origin, perhaps with an underlying, ancient sense of “picking, plucking” (as in, picking fruits to harvest them or gathering of crops).

Eventually, the use of harvest as a name for the season fell out of use, instead becoming used for the period when ripened crops are harvested—gathered for processing and winter storage. The word harvest can also refer collectively to those ripened, gathered crops themselves.

When is fall in the Northern Hemisphere?
About September 22 or 23, as the sun crosses the celestial equator going south

When is fall in the Southern Hemisphere?
About March 20 or 21, when the sun moves north across the celestial equator

Why do leaves change color?
Shorter days and cooler temps force trees to stop producing chlorophyll – the substance that gives leaves their green color.  When the chlorophyll production stops, the always present carotenoids (yellow, orange, red and brown hues) appear.  In the summer months, the chlorophyll covers these carotenoids.

What is the difference between deciduous and coniferous trees?
Deciduous trees have leaves that fall off yearly. Coniferous trees bear cones and have needles or scales that do not fall off.  Another common name for conifers is evergreens (although not all evergreens are actually conifers).

What is pumpkin spice made of?
Pumpkin spice is a mix of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, dry ginger and cloves. Pumpkin spice doesn't taste like real pumpkin (that generally just tastes like squash).
