Autumn History & Traditions | world-symbols

Tuesday, January 5, 2016

We refer to most seasons by the names that were commonly used by our ancestors. Winter is from the German word meaning "time of water" (of rain and snow.) Spring refers to the springing forth of life from the earth. The word autumn comes from the original Latin word "autumnus". The alternate term, fall, originated with the Germans but became commonplace with the mid16th century English who typically referred to fall as meaning "the fall of the leaves."

Here's a look at some common symbols and traditions associated with Fall or Autumn.
