Fun Fall Facts

Fall colors are best when late summer is dry & autumn has bright
sunny days & cool nights below 40 °F.

In poetry, autumn is usually associated with
melancholy emotions.

The largest pumpkin on record was weighed in
last year at 1810 lb.s.

Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird
of the United States.

Although, Thanksgiving is widely considered an American holiday, it is also celebrated on the second Monday in October in Canada.

And this one just makes me laugh...
Turkeys have heart attacks. The United States Air Force was doing test runs and breaking the sound barrier. Nearby turkeys dropped dead with heart attacks.
