There is a lot of reasons to love the season of Autumn or Fall. Many people find this to be their favorite time of year. So we thought to ask our Inkspell authors to see what they had to say about this season. We wanted to know what they enjoyed about the seaon and why.
I live in New Hampshire, so my favorite part of fall is picking apples and pumpkins, watching the leaves change color, and asking all my flute students what they are dressing up as for Halloween! I love hearing all of their creative costume ideas!
In all honesty my favorite part of fall is the upcoming holidays. I get to do things with my kids that are normally reserved for once a year. Trick-or-treating, cooking a huge meal for Thanksgiving, and decorating for the Christmas celebration are amongst the activities I enjoy the most and wait for all year long.
The cooler weather is an added bonus.
I love Halloween. The joke in our family is that some of us got the "Creepy Gene" and some of us didn't. For instance, I have it, my sister doesn't, and only one of my children seems to have inherited the gene. Putting up all the decorations, picking out costumes, and stocking up on candy - I mean, what's NOT to love? We celebrate for the entire month of October. Though I'm a total wimp when it comes to those scary amusement park haunts, I love everything else about Halloween. Yet, the part I love the absolute most is dressing up in my costume. Some years, I throw something together last minute while other years I plan a really elaborate costume. This year I'm very excited to put together my Steampunk outfit. I'll be sure to post a picture on my blog. Happy Halloween!
My favorite thing about fall is knowing that winterguard season is right around the corner. (Winterguard is like colorguard, except we compete without a band. Kind of like a competition dance teams with flags, rifles, and sabers.-This is a photo of us during a competition.) I love coaching, and the six months between seasons seems to drag on and on! Once September hits, I start planning our shows, picking out flags and uniforms. I hate snow and ice and cold, so I definitely don't like the impending weather. Other than winterguard, the only thing to look forward to in fall is a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks and curling up under a blanket with a good book!
I think my favourite part of fall (or autumn as I call it) are the changing of the leaves. I love the orange/red colour that they turn and how the become crispy and if you make a huge pile of them you can even jump into them...haha! I also think that as a student Iove it because it means I can go back to university and see my friends again after a long summer :)
My favorite part of fall is the turning of the leaves. I love the crunch of them underfoot and the way they blanket the sidewalk. When the rain comes, they fill the grates and leave ghostly imprints of themselves on the cement as if their color had bled out of them form the rain. Though I currently live in Vancouver, I've been fortunate enough to live in a few cities across Canada. Of all the places I've lived, the leaves are at their most magnificent in Toronto in the fall. The weather is surprisingly mild there through October. Five years ago, I was in Toronto during the end of a heat spell, when the leaves were just turning. We drove two hours North to Algonquin Park, a large provincial park just north of the city. The leaves surrounding us were as vibrant as flames. it's the most beautiful time of year in Ontario.
Now that you have heard about some of our authors' favorite parts of the Fall Season, what are yours?
