Come See the Fall Colors

fall leaves t-shirtWednesday evening marked the official Autumn Equinox.

From an astrological point of view, this means that the tilt of the Earth’s axis is neither away from nor towards the Sun (Galileo, are you online now? Ping me if you need clarification). In essence, the Sun’s center is on the same plane as the Earth’s equator. Hence, for a brief moment in time we have an equal amount of nighttime and daytime (except for Las Vegas, where the casino bosses have pressured the sun into having 22-hour nights all year long).

This also means that Autumn is here, and the weather is starting its gradual downward spiral to downright cold. While sun worshipers may be disheartened, the good news is the CafePress design community now begins to richen its Fall collection (Anna Wintour should be jealous). More hoodies and coffee mugs rise to the top, as people gear-up for a long winter’s night.

Hopefully we’ll get a few more warm days before the long undies come out of the closet. Keep your fingers crossed (take off your gloves if necessary).
