You know Fall is here when the air becomes much colder as the nights become longer and the days shorter. When the leaves turn from green to bright yellows, oranges, and reds, when pumpkins grow in abundance, scarecrows take on a life of their own, and bales of hay dot the huge tracts of farms.
These are just some signs of a change in season. Much like that change, people also switch their clothes and garments, keeping the fresh thin summer whites and bringing out the thick warm sweaters and scarves.
To some people, this is a time of new relationships, of new love. And to those who are lucky enough to be in an enduring romance, it is another chance to spice things up. We are sure you have several tricks up the proverbial sleeves to do just that, but we thought of 35 more that can help you enjoy the company of your loved one in simple and safe activities to warm up your days and nights in the season.
