    Fall is my favorite season. I love the cool, crisp weather. I love seeing the leaves change. I love my memories of childhood(dad driving us to the mountains for the day to get hot apple cider and seeing the leaves change and my grandma signing me, my brothers, and cousins out early from school to play in the leaves are just two). I love my college football. Fall is my absolute favorite season.

    I could go on and on but want to hear about what y'all love fall. :)

    The cooler, but not cold, temperatures. Same reason I love spring. :)

    I love the cooler weather. My favorite is when your cheeks get rosy but you're otherwise comfortable in a hoodie outside.

    I love hot apple cider.

    I love pumpkins and all the pumpkin-flavored food!

    I used to love setting up the hot-tub and climbing in on a chilly night. Can't do it this fall/winter, so I'm pretty bummed about that. :( Looking forward to next fall/winter for that, for sure.

    I love the changing leaves and the cool weather. I like having my windows open.

    By the time fall comes I have had enough of the hot weather, especially here, where we had 10 degree higher than what I'm used to during the whole summer.
    I love how the weather changes, at first it's subtle, but you can tell the air is a little cooler, crisp but it's still sunny and so beautiful.
    A big reason is so that I can finally wear sweaters + boots! My favorite.
    Our weather just changed here last week, I'm hoping it will stay like this, I don't know the local weather. (just moved here in March)

    One thing I don't know: apparently they have a HUGE fog problem here in the fall / winter, to the point that every school has a foggy day schedule. Not sure how that works, but it sounds like it's not pleasant. I was told the fog is so bad here, that at the intersections you don't see the cars, you just hear them. Eerie.

    On days like today, outside just smells so clean and perfect. Just the crispness in the air, I guess, but it seems to have this perfect smell. Okay, it's kind of hard to explain. :p

    Fall is my favorite season too! I love the coolness & the overall different feeling that comes with the season. I love fall fashions: Boots, sweaters, & you can wear more leather. I like getting a hot chocolate on occasion. I love being cozy at home, watching a movie & enjoying good food! I like it when it rains as well!

    I love temperature, the breeze, the bright colors, fresh apples, apple cider and just the crisp smell in the air.

    Fall fairs, hot chocolate, chili, hoodies, clear crisp nights for star grazing, and no more 100 degree weather!

    Wow, I'm a party pooper. I hate fall, I hate winter. I live in NC and wish I lived in FL. I like spring because warmer days are coming and I can start gardening. Of course, I LOVE summer---beach, water parks, out in my pool, off everyday, nothing is better than summer :) But I turn in to a mega grump by mid-October when I need to start turning on that blasted heater in the car in the morning. Hate it. Hate it. Hate snow, hate chilly winds, chilly rains, ugh. I wish I was a bear--wake me up when spring returns, lol.

    I like THIS kind of fall...the very early days. It was almost eighty today, but a nice crisp morning and evening. Once all leaves have fallen and it's straight up cold, I am most certainly not a fan.

    I love the cool crispness, the pumpkin flavored everything (except maybe ice cream. I'm pretty much done with ice cream by fall.) the changing leaves, the apples ripening and all the yumminess that comes with them, the football, and (this year) my wedding day!

    Ha, I googled it. I've never heard that expression before. Around here, there isn't really a big season of leaves changing. It can be winter and some trees are losing leaves, while some others just drop leaves all year round. Weather makes a difference, clearly.

    My parents go to New England to leaf peep (great expression).

    I know exactly what you mean...

    I LOVE fall! Everything about it is just wonderful--especially on those perfect sunny days with blue skies, the crispness and little bit of chill in in the air. :)

    Here in southern IN, the longer fall season (almost) makes up for the ridiculously hot summer. Back in WI, it seemed like fall lasted about a week before winter came in full force...

    My kids always do a descriptive writing project about fall and I always say they are supposed to describe it so someone who lived in Florida or somewhere like that could experience it. Last year's class was so sweet that they wanted to send their essays to somebody to help them "feel fall."

    I like the changing leaves, and I like there's a pumpkin festival that I go to every year with a group of friends. Don't mind haunted houses.
    On the whole, I'm not a fan of fall though. It serves as kind of a grim reminder that winter will be arriving shortly. And winter is my least favorite (courtesy of massive seasonal depression).

    I love going to northern CA (where family lives) to experience more real fall - changing leaves, cooler weather, rainy days, etc. What we have here in SoCal is NOT fall...:rolleyes:

    Sorry - it's 90 degrees today (again...) and I am TIRED of the heat, so I'm a little grumpy.
