While some people are happily soaking up every last ray of summer sunshine they can, there are others out there doing their best to patiently wait for August to end so they can get to their favorite season: fall. And if you’re one of those people who loves the -ber months best, you’ll be happy to hear Starbucks has created a special group for fall enthusiasts: the "Leaf Rakers Society."
So, what’s this society all about? It’s a Facebook group about all things fall-related for those obsessed with the season. Starbucks recently tweeted about it with an adorable autumnally-themed animated video and asked, “It’s never too early to celebrate fall, right? If yes, go here,” with a link to the group so you can request to join.
On the fence about whether or not this society is for you? According to Starbucks, “This is a safe place for a) pumpkins b) year-round scarf wearers c) those who would rather work on their Halloween costume than their tan d) members of the Great Pumpkin watch 2017 Facebook group.” And they don’t allow “hatin’ on fall,” so no Pumpkin Spice Latte-bashing here.
Clearly, this group isn’t for everyone. If you’d rather be sipping rosé on a sunny beach somewhere, maybe you’re not Leaf Raker Society material. But if you’re all about pumpkin scones, apple cider, and checking out the natural beauty of the leaves changing color, the Starbucks mermaid welcomes you to the group.
