The autumnal equinox occurs every year on the 22, 23 or 24 September. It marks the moment the sun crosses the celestial equator which is a metaphoric line running across the sky parallel to the earth’s equator. In laymen’s terms, it means coats and wrapping up warm in preparation for Halloween, bonfires and leafy walks in the park. Autumn is a beautiful time of year providing us with stunning natural vistas and excuses to indulge in our warm and toasty comforts – blankets, hot chocolate and nights in.
