Fall starts on Wednesday at 11.09 PM. Do you call it Fall or Autumn? For meteorologists, fall always starts on September 1. For some people who live in China, Korea, Vietnam and Japan, fall starts around August 8th. In the hemisphere it starts in March. Maybe it's when the leaves start to change? Maybe it's when animals start to store food for winter. Or is it when the fall TV schedule starts? Bearwiskers says...That's an easy question - it's when FOOTBALL starts!
