Seriously, how amazing is fall? The air gets crisper, the feels get spookier, the leaves change colour, and everything smells like pumpkin spice.
And to top off the world's greatest season, there's also the glorious festivity known as Oktoberfest. Usually taking place at the very end of September or the beginning of October, Oktoberfest celebrates the world's greatest activity. Drinking beer. Drinking lots and lots of beer.
