My favorite time of the year used to be autumn up north. Gosh, I used to LOVE the changing leaves, crisp fresh air, apple picking, halloween...all the different colors of that season (sigh) I also like doing the Thanksgiving thing to
But then we moved to South Florida. I guess I really enjoy the "winter" time here. I like the cooler air starting in late November up until March. The Christmas season doesn't feel the same without lots of snow though. But my son's birthday is 12/15, so that's always a special time for us. It's still nice to see all the pretty decorations and Santa in the malls..It's so beautifully decorated down here.
I despise the HOT humid summer time here. Not that New York was much better..But still, the tropical heat does take it's toll on you. You can jump in the pool, come out and still be as hot as you were before you jumped in

Autumn's beautiful colors make it my favorite season. The turning leaves can transform an ordinary maple tree into a flame red work of art. On many Tennessee roadsides and in farmer's markets, farmers display a vibrant array of harvest fruits and vegetables. Front yards of homes around our little towns are adorned with fodder, hay bales, bright orange pumpkins, green and yellow gourds, and mums in a variety of fall hues. I love the palette of colors God chose for this time of year. I feel the same as Susy K when it comes to the "fires on cool nights, hot apple cider, apple pie, pumpkins, Halloween, haunted houses, big wooly sweaters". However, I am the biggest chicken around when we go to haunted houses or haunted hay rides! I invite any of you to visit the Smoky Mountains in October. It is a truly beautiful sight!
p.s. I just read my post and realized I sound like a travel advertisement!
