Catch Those Falling Leaves for Good Luck!
(some things you might not know about Fall)

Autumn has been called the “hectic beauty of death.”

According to seasonal patterns of relationships in Facebook profiles, autumn is the time when more singles change their status to “In a Relationship” or “Engaged” than the yearly average. More breakups occur during the summertime.

Autumn babies, or those born between September and November, are more likely to live to 100 than those who were born in other times of the year.

According to NASA, autumn is “aurora season” because geomagnetic storms are about twice as frequent as the annual average during the fall.

A study in the journal Perception noted that men think women are more attractive in the cooler season. One theory is that men’s testosterone levels rise during the fall. Another theory is the “contrast effect.” During the summer, men are frequently exposed to scantily clad women—but not so much in the autumn, which shifts “attractiveness criteria” in women’s favor in the fall.

According to superstition, catching leaves in autumn brings good luck. Every leaf means a lucky month next year.

During the fall, in response to colder temperatures and less light, leaves stop producing chlorophyll, the green pigment that helps capture sunlight to power photosynthesis. As the green fades, the leave’s other pigments shine through, such as orange and yellow carotenoids and vibrant red anthocyanin.

Scientists believe global warming could affect autumn colors. As the world warms, leaves may delay changing their colors. Additionally, trees may not use their sugars to create red pigments; rather, they might send that fuel to growing new twigs. Global warming may also alter the habitats of trees, such as the sugar maple, which creates some of the most vibrant fall colors.

Each fall, the black-capped chickadee’s tiny hippocampus enlarges by 30%, which enables it to remember where it collected seeds in different spots in trees and on the ground.

Researchers found that during the cooler months of autumn, men are more likely to cozy up with their sweethearts and watch romantic comedies. Feeling cold activates a yearning for warmth and comfort with others.

The autumnal equinox occurs on different dates each year, but usually falls on September 22 or 23. In 1931, the equinox fell on September 24 because the Gregorian calendar doesn’t always match up with the position of Earth in its orbit around the sun. The fall equinox won’t happen again on September 24 until 2303.

The term “equinox” is from the Latin meaning “equal night.

During the spring and summer, most people eat more carbs. However, they develop a tendency for fattier foods in the autumn, which leads to seasonal weight gain.

Celebrate Grandparents!
First celebrated in 1978, National Grandparents Day is observed in the U.S. on the first Sunday after Labor Day. It honors both maternal and paternal grandparents.
Grandparents have always been special. Today, they're even more important. In very busy families, an involved grandparent is especially beneficial ... and helpful.
The special kind of love children get from a grandparent is something they can't get anywhere else. It is a genuine kind of love, a unique and important kind.
Parents have to worry about who children will become in the future, and they have to be providers and disciplinarians. Grandparents can just enjoy their grandchildren for who they are in the moment.
Today's grandparents are usually pretty young themselves, which is just fine with the kids.

September is Baby Safety Month

It is important that infants are safe and that parents feel safe about the environment their baby is in. Parents, here are a few simple tips to help make sure that your baby is safe:

1. Check your car seat installation. One of the simplest ways to make sure baby is safe while you drive. Car seats are all slightly different and fit differently depending on your vehicle. Before bringing baby home, take your car and car seat to a local fire department for a free car seat check. For more car seat tips, check out The Car Seat Lady.
2. Avoid high surfaces. Even though newborns can't yet crawl, they are surprisingly wiggly. Avoid placing your newborn -- whether in or out of an infant carrier car seat or "bouncy" seat -- on a high surface. This includes the seat part of a shopping cart, which can cause serious injury if an infant carrier topples to the ground.
3. Watch your pets around baby. When bringing baby home for the first time, pay close attention to how your pet(s) react to baby. Never leave your baby and pet(s) unattended together. The Humane Society offers excellent tips on introducing a baby to pets.

4. Learn about babywearing safety. There are right and wrong ways to "wear" your baby in a carrier, and each carrier is different. Be sure you know how to safely wear your carrier (check out the brand's website for safety tips), and for general safety, check out the ABCs of babywearing safety from Babywearing International.
5. Know first aid procedures. Take an infant/child CPR and choking training class. 911 is always available, but knowing how to perform life-saving maneuvers should you need them will buy you crucial time.
6. Practice safe co-sleeping. If you choose to share your bed with baby, be sure to know the ways in which co-sleeping can be done safely. KellyMom (a breastfeeding website resource) shares an excellent round-up of tips and research on safe co-sleeping.

7. Bathe your baby safely. One of parents' top reported fears about newborns and babies is giving a bath safely. And rightfully so -- babies are slippery! But with a little knowledge and some practice, you'll quickly become a pro. The National Institutes of Health created an easy-to-read bath safety checklist.

September Is:
• Classical Music Month
• National Courtesy Month
• National Piano Month
• Chicken Month
• Baby Safety Month
• Honey Month
• Self-Improvement Month
• Better Breakfast Month

Be an Angel and …

Every year, on August 22, National Be an Angel Day, we have the opportunity to put away our phones and become mindfully aware of the people around us, including family members and neighbors. Do they have a special need? How can we help? Here are a few suggestions:

• Wash the car of an elderly or ill neighbor.
• Tip the pizza delivery guy 50-100%.
• Help someone finish a tiring task without being asked.
• Take your clean, lightly-used clothing or household goods to local victims of a flood or tornado.
• Smile at strangers.
• Buy coffee coupons and place them anonymously on coworkers’ desks.
• Notice and greet by name or compliment a shy or reticent coworker.

No matter how small or seemingly insignificant your act of kindness, it will be received with a smile and gratitude. Being angelic can become addictive, too.

One last word. Angels don't boast or text the others about their good deeds. They just feel an inner glow of satisfaction.
