Ah, fall. Who isn't excited to celebrate what is the most universally loved season of all? We have bright sun, cold air, and plenty of gorgeous leaves and colors around us. When it comes to things we love, in fact, it feels like for '90s kids, loving the fall season is pretty darn consistent among us. It can be fun to think about, for example, what GIFs make us '90s kids think, "Me during fall," especially when we're already daydreaming about our favorite decade anyway.
Growing up in the '90s was awesome for a lot of reasons, and fall was definitely at the top of the list. We got to go back to school, see all of our friends and teachers, and of course take advantage of ridiculous fall fashion. Denim jacks, leggings, and boots have been a fall uniform since we were kids, and it doesn't appear to be changing anytime soon. And don't even get me started on all of the amazing holiday movies that pop up around fall, from Halloween to Thanksgiving.
Let's celebrate fall and skip down memory lane a bit together, because I have a feeling these GIFs will make any and all '90s kids think, "Yes! That! That is absolutely me right now!"
