I prefer spring. I'm quite involved in photography, and while I find a certain beautiful glory in the autumn scenes, I much prefer the vibrancy of spring.


Although Spring is nice, I find it sometimes to be a bit bland, as all the pictures that are taken during those times are of the same flowers, and that gets boring after a while.

But all in all I find all Seasons to have their own personality, nature wise.

Alisto wrote:Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. You're not required to buy gifts for everyone you've ever met, it's not religious, and there's lots of good food. My take on Thanksgiving is that it's all about spending time with those you care about.

It's probably one of mine as well, for those reasons. Plus, in addition to spending time with those you care about, it's about giving thanks for what you have, which is always something I can get behind.

I will be at home this year, which is nice, because I've missed the last two. In 2005, I was in the Australian Outback on a trip that did have three other Americans, but no particular drive to make something with turkey or share what we were thankful for or anything. We basically just commented on how "oh, tomorrow's Thanksgiving, isn't it? We should totally have turkey or something." (I spent that Christmas on a boat in the Whitsundays. But that was different, because everyone I was with was also away from home for a major holiday, so it was lots of fun.) Last year, I was in Mexico. I didn't even know when Turkey Day was until a few days later, when it figured in my dad's explanation of why he hadn't yet had any opportunity to transfer me some money so I could buy a plane ticket home for Christmas.

I also think fall is by far my favorite season, which is why this one is nice, even without much color changing. (The summer here was really dry, so the colors aren't so brilliant as they sometimes are.) I've missed the last two, first by spending fall in a country where it was actually spring, and then by spending it so slightly into the northern hemisphere that seasonal temperature changes were pretty minimal year-round.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Autumn here is a bit disappointing. It rains. And rains. And rains, so that you give thanks to mighty Cuthulhu for sending something different...

Summer is so much better.

Delalyra - incredible photos. Thanks for posting them.

Thanksgiving - not being American, I've never celebarated it. But any holiday where you get to eat all that delicious food, no commercial pressure for presents is involved, and yes, it actually encourages you to think about what you have to be thankful for... awesome.

Hey, bigglesworth - you living in the same British Empire I am? It's been sunny in England's south for over a whole WEEK!

That's why I like the way Chinese families celebrate holidays. Basically any holiday, American or Chinese, is an excuse to consume ridiculously large amounts of food in one evening. Tasty.

My ex-husband and I had one back when we first separated (before going public). It was spectacular! We had red wine glasses (got them for less than a buck each) and red lights strung on the balcony and tons of other stuff. I still have the paper lanterns up in the guest bathroom.

A Chinese New Year party is a great way to beat the post-holiday chilly-weather blues.

My family is mostly German-American, and we do this too. Maybe it's cause I grew up in the midwest. If you don't have ridiculously huge piles of food left over after everyone has gorged themselves, you didn't make enough. :D

I was actually thinking of the festival they had every year in my hometown, with Chinese food, dragon dancing and lots of little random things, however a self-made party would also be great - assuming you had access to some good chinese food!

I live in upstate New York, next to the Pennsylvania border - actually grew up in rural NEPA - and every year my extended family has a hayride. Aunts, uncles, cousins, neices, nephews, all pile into a giant wagon full of haybales and Grandpa tows us all over our hometown, relating family history and town landmarks.
Kind of like a massive carriage tour, except relevant to your own family. Always look forward to hayride in autumn.
Also, autumn = soup season! Time to break out the stock-pots!

Well, yes, but I can remember Autumns where it has rained more. I must have been a bit grumpy when I wrote that.

And living in one of the most southern parts of the UK, I guess I must get less rain than is my fair share, so it's all good.

Depending on a place to stay, the Boy and I were thinking of coming up to Boston for Thanksgiving. We have a four-day weekend, too. I can't afford another flight to Texas this year, and Belial hates his family, so we've nowhere to go. ;_; I can make delicious cornbread dressing and peas and sweet potato pie!

It's everywhere. Almost any major family-gathering holiday requires the production and consumption of enough foodatory items to feed the entire population of your state or country for one week. Somehow, and I don't know how, maybe Science will one day provide explanation, but any food consumed on a holiday (A) tastes better on that holiday than if the exact same food was prepared on any of the other 364 days of the year, and (B) doesn't fill you up as much as it would on the other 364. That's why one must go back for seconds and thirds. For those who are dieting or trying to watch your weight, any fat grams, carb grams, calories, cholesterol, etc. are nonexistent on the holidays.

This thread gives me warm fuzzies. I am ready for that daylight savings time kick backwards, whenever you are, farmers. I'm probably spending thanksgiving with my roommate's family, who I have kinda merged into. They live only 1 hour away so we'll drive down for the holiday and do some very nice slacking.

I can't wait for my first glass of hot chocolate spiked with rumplemintz. And being anti-hungry. No more food.... ppleaase.

I have a Jewish grandmother, so the phenomenon is duly noted here as well. Jewish food yayyy! I swear she has a walk-in cupboard and some of that stuff has not seen the light of day for years, though. She just always has a ton of food so some of it never manages to get used.

But yeah, since my mother is Jewish and my father is Lutheran I was brought up celebrating a lot. And since I'm not religious myself, every holiday is an excuse to eat delicious food and be with family. Which is really the best part, anyway.

I haven't celebrated holidays in years, though I'm forced to go through the motions by family. I get them gifts and such for christmas and the like, but I skip out on all the religiosity, as it is very contrived and annoying. About the only holiday I do participate in is New Year's Eve, as there is excessive drinking, which I excel at.

PictureSarah wrote:Awww, thanks Delalyra. Cookies do make everyone feel better.


Already posted this in the cookbook thread, but since everyone's talking about cookies, apples and cooking, this one tends to go over well:

Apple Cobbler Cookies
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup salted butter, softened
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup apple butter
2 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 3/4 cups quick oats (not instant)
1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon
1 stick salted butter, melted

Mix flour, baking powder, and cinnamon; set aside.
In a separate, large bowl, mix sugar and brown sugar. Cream in softened salted butter. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Next, add apple juice and apple butter. Mix well, then begin to add flour mixture. Blend on low until combined -- do not overblend.
Add apples. Set aside and chill while preparing crumb mix.

Crumb Coating:
Mix last four ingredients until dry ingredients are moistened.

Roll cookie dough into teaspoon-size balls and then roll into crumb mixture. Roll until coated. Place on ungreased cookie sheets (12 to a pan). Cookies will spread during baking. Bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes or until crumb mixture is brown. Remove with a spatula to cooling surface.

I hate Autumn, but only as a function of where I live.

You see, I hate heat. I overheat very easily, yet I live in one of the hottest states in the Union. In the summer, this means I stick to the indoors mostly (high 90's/low 100's highs FTL) where it's nice and air-conditioned, not so bad. Winter's fine, because I generally like the cold, and I have a high tolerance for it--I've been known to be perfectly comfortable in shorts and sandals in 50 degree weather. Not "I'm cold and I don't care" comfortable, I mean not cold comfortable. Anyway, NM has mild winters, and indoor heating and jackets aren't terribly hard to come by when it does get cold.

Fall is a nightmare for me.

In NM, it stays summer weather until late september/early october. Then, with average highs still in the 80's, apartment complexes turn their air conditioning off. So now I'm overheated and uncomfortable with no way to cool myself. Mid-October to Mid/Late-November is a roller coaster, where it will literally go from being stiflingly hot to freezing cold in the span of hours. Worse than that, it gets barely cold enough that I'll need a jacket, but even the lightest of winter clothing causes me to overheat, and sweat, and generally make me uncomfortable. And of course, people start heating all the buildings, even when it's not cold.

If that weren't bad enough, Autumn here is BORING. Nothing special happens. We go from near summer heat to freezing cold weather (and back) so quickly that the leaves don't turn, they just die, turning a fugly brown instead of the pretty yellows and reds. The weather is miserable, either too hot or too cold. Sometimes it's windy, which I HATE. Generally just no fun.

I guess the one good thing is the chile harvest. Roasting chile is the most delicious smell. But it doesn't make up for the hell of living in a place that doesn't have proper seasons.

True. When it gets hot, you can only peel off so many clothes before the police come and arrest you for indecent exposure.

Last night while I was moderating the pet chat room, one of the tell-tale signs of autumn wafted through my window. Smelled like someone either had a fire burning in their fireplace (in their defense it got down to the low 40s last night, which to me meant they're wimps), or else someone had burned some leaves, although the entire state's under a burn ban at the moment. Had to have been the former, if they don't have central heat.

Supposed to only get down to the upper 50s tonight. if it gets cooler, I may pull one of the handmade quilts out that were made by my great-great-grandmother. Found them packed up in garbage bags, buried in the far back of an old smoke house. These are made in America, bitches. Not China.

It's 3 pm, here, the Leaves are yellow and pleasant, the sky is grey and dull. And in about 1 hour the land will be dark as night.
The frost has fallen and it's going to get really cold really soon. It's a time for cozyness, pies, loved ones and family. And anything else i'd have to say on that subject would probably go in the Confessional Thread.
I'm going to go out really early tomorrow and get som pics of Frostcovered Yellow Leaves at Sunrise.

Missed this earlier. I have a futon that can sleep two, you guys are welcome to it.

Southern Germany. Normally it only starts snowing in mid/late November.

Autumn has the best weather and makes the best name for a girl, if you were naming her after seasons.

Which sucks, because I want Spring to be the best as that's when my birthday is :/

My place is fine by me, but I'll let Sarah have the say on whether the kitchen is up to Thanksgiving snuff; it clearly is the most important part of the whole deal.

I'm thankful for Amicitia's tears. They warm my cold, black heart. =')
AWESOME! How many are in?

*That* is why I love Fall/Autumn. My mom told me about driving up to Cedartown and Rome in the Fall a few years ago. I may make a trip up there next week while I'm off. I may even drive to Alabama and take some pictures of the mountains over there. Pictures should be posted within a week.

Ooooohh. Is that a color-enhanced oak leaf there, or did you get lucky?
you may remember me from 2008 or 2009. I left for a while. I'm now sporadically back. I tumble here.
