My favorite season is autumn. I love the colors of fall--the oranges, yellows, reds, and even browns. I love waking up on a crisp morning and how it warms up during the day and when the nights are clear and bright and just chilly enough for a jacket. I love the start of school, the smell of new school supplies and clothes, the excitement for another year of learning that's in the air. I love the anxious feeling for the coming holidays--Halloween, then Thanksgiving and the coming of Christmas. I love apple season and all the baking that goes with it--apple pies, apple streudels, applesauce. Just thinking about the smell of cinnamon and apples makes me hungry for autumn.

What is your favorite season? Do like autumn, like me, but for different reasons? Do like winter, all snuggled in a warm home with a fire glowing while the gray sky sends little snow flurries fluttering down? Or spring, as the earth warms itself up from the cold winter and new life is everywhere? What about summer, those carefree days of playing in the warm sunshine under bright blue skies dotted with white, puffy clouds?

Which one do you prefer?

I love the autumn, too. It is always so invigorating and fresh. Spring is a very close second, though, it always feels like a new awakening.

When I was growing up, I was partial to both spring and fall. When I moved to Sweden, I grew to love summer with a passionate intensity. The part of Sweden I lived in was grey for 10 months of the year. For the brief period of summer, we would have sun and a slight increase in temperature. So now I love summer. I hated fall while living there because it signaled the beginning of long, cold winter days. Summer was just not long enough.

I LOVE THE FALL! So much. It's my favorite for sure. For all the same reasons you said. Really for all those reasons.

Plus also because I got married in the fall, had Lasik in the fall, and lived in Europe in the fall.

But the mountains. They are the best in the fall.

I have to admit, I love summer too, even when I've lived in hot places. I love swimming and sunny days. I could never live in a place that rained most of the year, I would feel glum all the time. The sun really affects my moods.

I really love all the seasons, it seems like I am always ready for the next one. I do love Fall and everything your listed. But I find Spring a new birth.
