While most Canadians are usually depressed, angry or just in denial over the fact that winter is coming, fall (or is it autumn?) is just one of those seasons that everyone seems to love.

The Changing Leaves
Canadians are lucky because we get to enjoy some of the most beautiful fall foliage in the world. Check out a list of some of our most beautiful parks here.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes
While pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks are the staple of the season, you can enjoy it in other ways including pumpkin spice candles and cupcakes!
