Some thing that I love it because I am a horror author, but I love the magic of October. It is a time t0 reinvent yourself. You can dress up on Halloween to be whoever you want. You can start enjoying fancy Starbucks drinks and candy and life. I know everyone has their season, I think mine it the fall.
It is funny though because I really dislike Christmas, and since I have digestive issues Thanksgiving can be hard on me. I am also allergic to apples, so let's say that all of the apple cider, and caramel apples, and delicious apple pies are constant reminders of what I am missing out.... I wasn't always allergic to apples. However, like everything else I make due with what I have been burdened with.
I grew up and lived in San Diego, California, for a long time. The seasons don't change much in San Diego, and the joke that it is 70 all year round, well it is closer to 75 and there are very few seasons. People love this, and I thought I did too, until I visited Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island during the fall. Seasons are magical. Watching the leaves change colors, the crisp feel as the air turns from humid and unbearable to delightful and refreshing, and the beauty of the landscape is awesome. I now live in Virginia, and the leaves are changing. The sky is getting dimmer and the clouds are getting longer and wider. The night isn't as loud as it was all summer as the bugs start to move on.
I love October. I love the weather and the chill in the air. I look forward to winter, when the world slows down and hot chocolate is the drink of the night. I do enjoy Halloween, and it is honestly my favorite holiday, but I love October for so much more than the holiday, I love it because it is October.
