FEU, L'AUTOMNE
L'automne est l'une des quatre saisons des zones tempérées. Elle se place entre l'été et l'hiver.
Astronomiquement, elle commence avec l'équinoxe d'automne et finit au solstice d'hiver.
Cette période correspond aux mois de septembre, octobre et novembre dans l'hémisphère nord et de mars, avril et mai dans l'hémisphère sud.
Dans le calendrier républicain français, l'automne est la première saison de l'année et comprend les mois de vendémiaire, brumaire et frimaire. La date officielle du début de l'automne peut varier selon les pays. Ainsi en Russie l'automne commence le 1er septembre.

AUTUMN
The word autumn comes from the Old French word autompne (automne in modern French), and was later normalized to the original Latin word autumnus. There are rare examples of its use as early as the 14th century, but it became common by the 16th century.

Before the 16th century, harvest was the term usually used to refer to the season. However as more people gradually moved from working the land to living in towns (especially those who could read and write, the only people whose use of language we now know), the word harvest lost its reference to the time of year and came to refer only to the actual activity of reaping, and fall, as well as autumn, began to replace it as a reference to the season.
