Reap the Harvest
This is a good day to experience the beating heart of fall. Picking apples right off the tree makes a delicious activity. Even if there are no orchards nearby, most places have a pumpkin patch or a corn maze within driving distance. Pumpkins can be propped on your porch and cornstalks tied to columns or a door frame to give your house a festive fall look.
Today’s Countdown to Christmas Challenge is to google a place to take the family where you can experience the bounty of fall. If necessary, call a friend and get a recommendation for some local farms. Pack a picnic (because you know you’ll likely run into either lunch or dinner), grab a blanket to spread out on, and head out for a day in the country!
