Pumpkin spice this, pumpkin spice that – Americans are obsessed with fall, but why? According to a Chapman University psychologist and professor, we obsess over fall because we associate it with happy traditions and memories. Specifically this fall, “to combat the anxiety and sadness that the COVID-19 pandemic has created, people are looking to the fall and winter as a way to anchor themselves to feelings associated with comfort, belonging, and safety.” As a nice distraction from reality, let’s celebrate this fall season with as much pumpkin spice as we can with fun icebreakers.
