Fall is a magical season! There is something in the way leaves are changing colors, the foggy air and the cooler days. It is a perfect season to get cozy as the days get colder. Suddenly, you have this urge to do “Fall Things” and just thinking about the crispy leaves and spices in the air, give you that tingly warmth inside your chest.
I am one of many who has a special place in my heart for this particular time of the year. However, this year is a little different than what fall use to be. With Covid-19 situation, it might not be the safest choice to host a crowded halloween party or go to theme park for a hunted house. While you can still enjoy pumpkin spice latte and a walk on the path full of crispy leaves, there are many ways for you to enjoy fall fully this year.
Fall activities can be a handful load even during this year situation. Here are some fall activities that I have collected to lift fall 2020 spirit high while staying safe from Coronavirus. Every moment can be a joyful moment, and I hope you all have a fabulous time during this beautiful season.
1. Watch all the Harry Potter movies
I mean… who doesn’t like Harry Potter. With most of the scene being set in a misty wizard land during fall/winter, the movie series has quite a strong iconology for fall season. The story will sure warm your heart in a cold and rainy day.
2. Decorate your space for Fall aesthetic
If you can’t be it, surround yourself with it? Bring your creative A game and decorate your cozy space to make your heart warm this pumpkin spice season!

7. Carve pumpkin
Something you would do near Halloween anyway. It is also a great piece of decoration. If it is too spooky to carve Jack-o’-lantern, then perhaps you can try some autumn leaves prints?
