There's probably no better argument for living
in a temperate climate than the month of October. You get color in the hills,
weather fit for jackets, pleasant, smoky aromas out in the wood-burning areas
and, to top it all off, Halloween.
All right, technically you get Halloween even
in sub-tropical regions. But in temperate regions, it can actually be a pleasant
experience wearing a large, elaborate costume, whereas if you were in, say,
Florida, you'd get about ten feet out the door, die of heat stroke, and tourists
would have their children pose for pictures with your becostumed corpse.
Fall's always run neck-and-neck with Spring for
my favorite season, but if it were a level playing field -- because,
let's face it, Spring has always had an unfair advantage in that it follows
Winter, which is really only tolerable until New Year's -- Fall would have
the distinct edge. Love of Fall is honest; love of Spring is fifty
percent an act of desperation.
