It's that time of the year again.

Time to dust off your big, cozy sweater, grab your pumpkin spice latte and dive into a big pile of colorful leaves.

Today is the autumnal equinox. The earth is lined up at a perfect right angle to the sun. That means night and day are almost exactly the same lengths — wherever you are around the globe.

It also marks the beginning of fall, when our days get shorter and our nights longer.

A Martinez shared his favorite part about the autumn season:

"The Fall Classic. The World Series. It could be in L.A. depending on how the Dodgers play in the next few days."

We asked listeners about fall in L.A. and got a bunch of tweets in response. Here are some of our favorites:
