That is not dumb at all! It is just lack of exposure to them.
Fall is essentially Autumn coming in, which is in the 22nd of September.
After that is Halloween. Halloween is October 31st (All Hallow's Eve - e.g. the evening before All Saints Day). You can see more about it on http://www.Halloween.com/
. If you look at the Halloween.com forums, there are a lot of people there who talk about decorating etc. There are pumpkins, and witches and all kinds of fun stuff.
Then comes Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving is something like a harvest festival. There was one Sept 8, 1565 in what is now St. Augustine Florida, but the traditional first Thanksgiving was in 1621 in Plymouth Plantation in what is now Plymouth, Mass. It is near the end of November each year, on a Thursday. It is generally a day of family dinners and turkey and other fun things. There is some information on http://www.Thanksgiving.info
. (And there will be more information there soon).
Does that help? Other questions?
