Fall vs. Spring
I told VW at breakfast that I was going to ask my readers their opinion and I forgot. Her post HERE reminded me... (Make sure you look at it... I love Calvin and Hobbes!)
OK, I was over at Pam's and she was talking about her favorite month is October. Mine is actually November. Either way, if you boil it down... it means we both love the Fall. So VW, who loves Fall too, and I were talking at breakfast the other day and we were wondering:
Is Fall our favorite because we're coming off of our dreadfully hot horrible summer months (forget about the hurricanes, I'm just talking sweltering heat in general) and the Fall is such a welcome change? Cool air is just refreshing. Cleans out the cobwebs of the stale and stagnant summer... A cool breeze upon our faces as opposed to the hot sting of the scorching sun. To me Fall is more of an aphrodisiac month than spring. It.just.is. Spring reminds me that the hot months I dread are soon upon us.
But I hear people up North talk about how much they love Spring. And I wonder... is it because they're coming off their equally brutal winters? Are they happy at the hint of taking off their parkas and putting on shorts? Of feeling a slightly warm breeze upon their faces as opposed to the cold harsh winter wind?
Would I find that the people of the Northern states with the brutally cold long winters love Spring more than Fall? Is Fall just another season, but they cannot wait for Spring?
And are the three of us the only ones down here who love Fall or do other people of other warm states find it the same way... the Fall is just... lovely.
We were just wondering.
