rudeneja

americhat asked:

Are there any words for the feeling of fall? With the leaves changing, the wonderful temperature and the generally comfortable, almost romantic feeling it gives off?

A Lithuanian word rudenėja describes the way the nature and/or the weather begins to feel like autumn - everything the spring gave dies in the most romantic and poetic way, the leaves starting to change to warm colors, and the way they quietly float into the air and fall into the ground as we hear crispy sounds as people step into them, a perfect balance between warmness and coldness of the atmosphere, and the way it gives a cozy and comfortable feeling.
