I love every season. I love it when the flowers start to grow in spring, I love to spend time outdoors in summer and have a barbecue, I love to see all the fallen leaves in fall and I love the snow in winter.
But I definitely have a favorite season. It's fall or Herbst in German. And there are a couple of reasons why I enjoy this season so much.
I love tea. I drink it at any time of the year but it tastes best in fall. I don't know why. But I love to make a pot of tea in the evening, to snuggle up on the couch under a warm blanket, read a good book or watch a movie and drink my tea.
I love to go out for hikes in fall. It is such a wonderful atmosphere when you see all the beautiful fall leaves and the wonderful colors. Everything smells so good, I can't even describe it. And when I come back into the warm house I make a tea for sure.
I love the fact that everybody in America is so excited about Halloween. When I was a kid it wasn't popular at all in Germany. It is getting more popular now but you can't compare it to America. I love going to haunted houses. It is so much fun. We went to a couple of good ones last year. For example a haunted cave (sooooo scary! I screamed a lot and I had to run away from a zombie who wanted to kill me with his chainsaw) and Haunted Hoochie (I almost froze to death because we had to wait so long but it was definitely worth it). I also love to make jack-o'-lanterns.
David's birthday is in October, right before Halloween and I love to celebrate it with him. I also love to bake a birthday cake for him which wasn't very successful last year because of our completely different taste in cakes. I will do better this year.
What do you love about fall? What is your favorite season?
Have a lovely Monday!
