HOW TO PLAY. Look for words hidden in the Fall Word Search puzzle. The words you need to find are listed in the "Words left" section on the right side of the puzzle.

Words can be forward, backward, or at an angle.

When you find a word, drag the letters of the word with the mouse. This places a blue line through the word, and the word is automatically removed from the list.

Click the "Hint" button if you need some help. The first letter of one of the words flashes as your clue.

You can only use the hint one time, so save it for when you really need it.

FALL ( AUTUMN ) TRIVIA. Here are some interesting facts about the fall season from Wikipedia:

  • Fall is associated with the transition from warm to cold weather, and its related status as the season of the primary harvest.
  • The word autumn comes from the Old French word autompne (automne in modern French), and was later normalized to the original Latin word autumnus.

    There are rare examples of its use as early as the 12th century, but it became common by the 16th century.

  • The Autumnal equinox begins on September 22-23. The equinoxes might be expected to be in the middle of their seasons, but temperature lag caused by the thermal latency of the ground and sea means that seasons appear later than dates calculated from a purely astronomical perspective.
  • Autumn in poetry has often been associated with melancholy. The possibilities of summer are gone, and the chill of winter is on the horizon. Skies turn grey, and people turn inward, both physically and mentally.
  • Autumn is also associated with the Halloween season, which in turn was influenced by Samhain, a Celtic autumn festival.

Fall is perhaps my favorite season. This Fall Word Search puzzle reminds me of many of the reasons why.
