25 Ways to Celebrate Fall in Canada

25 things every Canadian should do to celebrate fall

1. Go apple-picking

Apple-picking is a great outdoor activity and a lovely way to spend a fall day. It’s a great outing for the whole family, and best of all, at the end of it, you’ll have a delicious bag of crisp, juicy apples.

2. Make apple cider

Once you’ve got apples from the orchard, you can start the process of turning them into  spiced cider that you can enjoy on cool fall evenings. And for a little extra merriment, try making hard cider (instructions here).  For a Buddies style touch, add a few drops of your favourite CBD or THC tincture to punch up or medicate your cider.

3. Jump in a pile of leaves

Return to your childhood by taking a flying leap into pile of crunchy leaves. The crunching beneath your body and the dry, earthy smell they release are the very essence of fall.

4. Get lost in a corn maze

Corn is an important crop to Canadians, and we have ample space for creating giant, intricate mazes that are a joy to get lost in. Many corn mazes also have booths selling hot chocolate, petting zoos, and occasionally even pumpkin patches.  A twist on the walk outside, pick your favourite strain (perhaps a mind stimulating sativa) and head to your local corn maze for a last chance to enjoy nature before the bitter cold.

5. Have a corn roast

After you leave a corn maze, you may find yourself craving a big, buttery ear of the stuff. Fire up the barbecue, get together with friends and family, and enjoy the autumn’s golden harvest.

6. Get a new sweater

There’s nothing quite like snuggling up in a brand new sweater. Whether it’s a thrift store find, a soft cashmere turtleneck, or a one-of-a-kind hand-knit piece, there’s a special pleasure that comes with pulling a sweater over your head for the first time in months.  Hemp clothing is all the rage and outrageously comfortable!  The male marijuana plant has a lot to offer and theres something soothing about clothing made from a renewable resource that’s easy on the environment.

7. Start a new knitting project

Speaking of hand-knit sweaters, fall is the perfect time to get started on a new knitting project. You can anticipate the coming winter by getting a jump-start on a new hat or pair of mittens. You’ll thank yourself later.

8. Harvest your garden

If you keep a vegetable garden during the summer, now is when all your hard work pays off. Your squashes and root vegetables should be getting nice and big, and fruits should be hanging off the vines. Make a day of harvesting, and then plan a delicious homegrown dinner.  If you’ve taken advantage of our new freedoms , or have had an “indoor garden” of your own, autumn is the perfect time to reflect on and be grateful for the culture we have in this great nation.

9. Pickle and preserve

If you have a big garden, chances are you can’t eat everything you harvest before it spoils. The solution? Pickles and preserves. This is another great group activity. Pickle and can your fruits and veggies, and send everyone home with their own jars full of delicacies.

10. Carve a pumpkin
