It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Pumpkin season
Yay, it’s fall! I know, I know, it’s become a cliché to love fall, but I do. Amy has some questions about fall. Go check out her answers. I’m going to answer them here.

1) What's the first thing that makes you feel like summer is over and fall has arrived?
2) What's your favorite fall fragrance or flavor?
3) Favorite fall goodie?
4) Do have any fun fallish outings or traditions? (i.e. apple picking, looking at leaves etc.) If not is there something you've always wanted to do?
5) Football or Baseball postseason?
6) Halloween or Thanksgiving?
7) What's your favorite spooky monster?
8) Do you have a favorite quote about fall from a book or movie?
9) If you could go anywhere for a weekend trip during the season where would it be?
10) Describe your ideal fall day.

1) When the morning air is really chilly and I have to wear a sweater. I love that crisp feeling in the air.

2) This is weird but rotting leaves! That sweet, sort of gross smell hits me as I walk out the door. I love/hate it. It reminds me that it’s fall but also ew.

3) Honeycrisp apples. They are only really good during the fall season. They’re so expensive too but they’re worth it.

4) Every year we go out to a farm nearby and pick out our pumpkins (see photo). There’s a corn maze and lots of kiddie entertainment too. I also get squash, beets, and leeks for fall cookery.

5) Neither. I like the new TV season though.

6) Thanksgiving, which is in October in Canada. That is really the kick off to the season. Usually we go for our pumpkins that weekend. And turkey. I love turkey.

7) Dracula. He’s the Halloweeniest.

8) “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” from Anne of Green Gables. It sums up my feelings exactly.

9) This might sound lame but I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else but here in Nova Scotia. People come from all over the world to see our changing leaves. We even have a festival to celebrate it called Celtic Colours. It’s the best time of the year to be here.

10) The perfect day would be one where it was sunny and I’d hop in the car with the fam and go for a drive to see the changing leaves. Then we’d take a hike on one of the trails around here. After, we’d head to the farm for pumpkins and baked goods.

How about you?


  1. I am all about football this time of year, but I think it's going to be a painful season for me.

  2. what a perfect set of answers to autumn, Chris! I love the Anne of Green Gables quote and that you love being exactly where you are to see the fall colors. I think i might do this quiz, too. So many reasons to love fall :-) I hope you get out with the fam and have a perfect day, this autumn.

  3. awww I love your Anne of Green Gables quote, LOVE!

  4. I actually hate fall (sorry). But I am excited about Canadian Thanksgiving! Memory said I could celebrate it as an honorary Canadian so this year I am. :)

  5. I totally get the rotten leaves thing. Every morning, I walk through the orange grove here on campus and the smell of damp earth, decomposing fruit and bark, is just so appealing to me. I especially love it when they've put cedar chips down.

    I also ADORE Thanksgiving!

  6. I don't care how cliched it is, I've loved fall forever :D Love your answers!

    FOOTBALL! Whooo!

  7. Perfect answer to football vs. baseball. And perfect quote. I'd love to see Nova Scotia in fall. One day!
