The leaves are starting to change, the temperature is getting lower—and that only means one thing—fall is coming and Hampton’s students know it! They can not be more excited for the season coming, and their bucket lists are just starting to be filled. Do you want to know what the Talbots are looking forward to doing this fall?

Carving pumpkins, hayrides, watching movies and fall festivals are some of the usual plans that people usually do this season, but without a doubt going to a pumpkin patch is the most common answer of the students. They enjoy spending their morning picking their favorite pumpkin, drinking apple cider, playing fun games, buying fall-related stuff, taking cute pictures for Instagram…such fun activities to do with your friends and family.

When fall season comes, the main plan for most Hampton students is to stay all day in the kitchen baking all different kinds of cookies, cakes, cinnamon rolls, pies, or whatever you can put the pumpkin word in front of. “I don’t know why, but when fall comes the only thing I want to do is to be in the kitchen baking all day,” Hannah Kirkpatrick says.

“My favorite time of the year has always been fall, not only for the beautiful colors, but also for the food, pumpkin rolls will always be my favorite,” Josie Scolieri comments. Some of the favorite foods that people can’t wait to eat this fall include soups, apple pie, buffalo chicken dip, hot sausage sandwiches, butternut squash, roasted pumpkin seeds, mash potatoes, mac and cheese, turkey, sweet bread rolls, and basically everything that is pumpkin or cinnamon flavored. 

For most students, October is a synonym for Halloween. Haunted houses, going to Spirit Halloween, decorating your house with pumpkins, parties, trick or treating and watching horror films is the only thing on the Talbots mind this month. “Smile” is the new horror movie that everyone is talking about, being one of the most terrifying movies that some people have seen. You can’t miss it this month!

Fall has something special in Pennsylvania, that’s short and beautiful, making it more unique. Take advantage of it and don’t let it pass you by.
