Why everybody loves fall (???)
I don’t like cinnamon! I’m sorry, and I know with these 4 words I found myself lots of enemies.
I don’t like fall either, but I don’t dislike it completely, if it makes any sense.
I think the only issue with fall is that it comes before winter and, as Italian in Canada, winter is not exactly my favorite 6 months of the year!!!
What can I do? Not much.
So this year I decided I’m going to try to enjoy fall, in the desperate move to…. try to…. mmmh, … enjoy….ok, survive to another Canadian winter.
In fact, if I forget that for me it’s already cold enough to wear a winter jacket, there are a lot of things that I enjoy about fall.
- the trees and their colors
- tea, I like to find new kinds and be able to drink it without sweating
- soups, every kind. I just made tomato soup, and I love it!
- homemade tomato sauce
- baked goods (well, for these last two… I’m working on it!)
I don’t like:
- rain. In some way I prefer snow, even here in Canada, because when it’s snowing is easier to get around than when it’s raining.
Well, see, it’s working! The things that I like about fall are much more that things I dislike. Fall and I are now friend, actually more than friends! I was born for this part of the year!
I should actually write books about it, to help people to understand this season, to discover themselves through fall.
Then teachers will use my method to explain kids the beauty of fall, and the whole world will love this season. There will be a fall holiday with my name, and couples will want to get married in fall, and have babies in fall,….. buy houses in fall, and everything else in fall.
It will become the busiest part of the year though, and people will become very stressed,… and sad. It will be dark early, and everybody would start to eat more, because comfort food is perfect for that.
Everything will be gray, and wet, and windy….. Wow, good thing I live in Canada and I’m sure the winter will wipe out the fall pretty soon!
Too bad, I love fall!
