23rd September – The autumn equinox

The word equinox is Latin for “equal night”. The autumn equinox is when autumn officially begins.

Autumn, also known as fall in North American English, is one of the four seasons in the UK. Autumn marks the transition from summer to winter, when days will get shorter and the nights longer
