After months of attending barbecues, sipping on cool drinks and dealing with perpetual sweatiness, the first day of fall has finally arrived to perform its annual meteorological duties in the Northern Hemisphere. This yearly cooldown comes with a ton of perks for a lot of humans who can now look forward to more perspiration-free activities, an excuse to snuggle up in our favorite sweaters and sip endless pumpkin-flavored beverages, snap Instagram-worthy fall foliage photos and more.

From expressing sheer giddiness over the arrival of autumn to those who are reluctant to leave the dog days behind until next year, reactions to the first day of fall generally vary across the board, and judging by these Twitter reactions to the #FirstDayofFall, 2019 is no different.

Some are more than ready to start the fall home makeover process, and we totally get it: 

When it comes to shifting into a fall frame of mind, we recommend starting small. 

It’s tempting to go full fledged hygge mode but since the presence of summer still lingers in many locations, ease into autumn by completing minor yet impactful tasks like cleaning off your boots, hanging a fall wreath, swapping out your table settings and putting aside a little bit of cash for holiday shopping sales we all look forward to. Anthropologie fall home collection shopping spree, anyone? 

Others are absolutely pumped for beanie season:

After trying to maintain a decent hairstyle in humid conditions, we understand a ton of folks are looking forward to the chance to cover up their ‘do with a cap and call it a day. 

Some are having a hard time letting go of summer:

There’s absolutely no shame in struggling to get over the (temporary) loss of summer.  Breaking up with warm, sunny days is hard to do for those who thrive when the forecast involves searing heat with no sign of rain in sight. Heartbroken over the increasingly shorter days and sunsets at 5pm? The only way to embrace the arrival of fall is to transition into the seasonal changes so it’ll be filled with more pleasantries and less summer-less sorrow.

Sorry, summer lovers. Fall is here to do its thing, and it’s not up for debate:

Before a Twitter fight breaks out, maybe we should focus on the really important stuff?

Like fall-themed drinks:

Yum. Sip and snuggle weather awaits us.
