My Favorite Time of Year!

Welcome to Thoughts for Thursday! This feature is our outlet to talk with you about whatever we currently have on our minds. It might be bookish, it might not! Now for this week's thought:

My Favorite Time of Year!

September through December is my absolute favorite time of year. While many are mourning the ending of Summer, I am relishing the start of Fall and the coming of Winter. Here are some of the reasons why I love these 4 months of the year so much:

1. Cool Weather! I get sick of the heat much more quickly than I get sick of the cold so by the time September rolls around I am blessing the cooler days. My perfect weather is ~70 degrees F and there are so many of these "perfect" days during the Fall in New Jersey. But I am in love with snow too. Snow brings snowboarding and snowmen and snow fights and snow days and all that good, fun stuff.

2. Warm Things! With cool weather comes sweaters and boots and scarves and blankets and warm drinks and soup and fireplaces and all of these warm comfy things that I just can't get enough of. I went a little overboard recently and bought 6 pairs of patterned tights in my overjoyed state but I can’t wait to pair with big comfy sweaters, scarves and boots. And one of my favorite places to read is in front of the fire with a blanket and warm mug of tea. So much comfiness awaits me, I can’t even handle it.

3. It's Beautiful! Fall, to me, is the prettiest of seasons! I love when the leaves start to change colors and the sky is clear and the air is crisp. And decorations start to go up for the various holidays which only adds to the beauty and spirit of the season. It also gets a lot quieter around my neck of the woods as the animals/insects start to go away, which in turn is so peaceful. And the Winter sky is my favorite. ^.^

4. Holidays Galore! In just 4 months I get to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, which are basically 4 of the “big” 5 Holidays I celebrate. That means time-off work and friends & family and parties and food and dress up and gift-giving and decorations and more food. :) There is so much to be happy and excited for this time of year. I am pretty much a ball of excitement the entire season.

5. FOOTBALL! I am a HUGE football fan and Fall means football. Lots and Lots of football. Sunday Funday just got a lot more fun, and Monday and Thursday nights just got a lot less boring. And when the Eagles are doing good, all the more to be cheerful about. :D

6. Seasonal Treats! Fall has more season-inspired flavors than any other season. Like pumpkin spice, and cinnamon spice, and apple cider, and my absolute favorite – EGGNOG. And with bathing suit season behind us we can shamelessly indulge in all of it! Nom Nom my friends!

7. TV Shows Return! So although I am TERRIBLE at keeping up with shows and generally DVR everything and catch up later, this is still an exciting time of year. No more waiting in suspense over last season’s cliffhangers. TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED TO DAMON SALVATORE NOW!

8. Everything Else! Everything I forgot to mention about these perfect 4 months but that makes this season so magical.

The only, ONLY thing I dislike about this time of year is the fleeting daylight hours. I am already now waking up when it is dark out, which is awful, and soon it will be dark when I leave work too. But I will gladly sacrifice some sunlight for all that this season brings with it.
