Winter, spring, and summer can suck it.
It’s fall, aka THE BEST season. So, because we love all things fall, we’ve listed out some reasons why it is, in fact, the best!
Fall Smells Like a Campfire
I am not sure why fall always seems to smell like this, but it is an astounding quality for a season to have and it is great. Just something in the air, I suppose. Campfire smell is the best smell. I’m not sure why the other seasons don’t smell like this.
The Temperature Is Perfect
Everyone who likes summer is a sociopath. (Sorry, not sorry.) You feel like you should go outside during summer but you don’t because it’s a billion degrees, and in certain states, everything is on fire. Things mostly stop being on fire in fall, which is nice. If you want to argue that winter is the season with the best weather, congratulations on being a polar bear.
All the Good Sports Are in Full Swing
College basketball and the NBA start up in the fall. College football and European soccer are in full swing. Those are the only good sports and during fall, they are all happening at the same time.
The Leaves Look Pretty
The leaves, while in the process of withering and dying and falling off branches to the ground — to be turned into the dirt and become nutrients for the trees and eventually turn back into leaves — look extremely good.
It Has Halloween
Halloween is fine, if you’re into that sort of thing, I guess. It’s not my personal cup of tea but if you want to do the whole dress up, get really drunk, try to hook up with strangers who are also in costume, fail and go to bed sad, and wake up still in your costume, you go for it. I assume there are other ways to experience Halloween but that seems to be the way my generation does it.
IT HAS THANKSGIVING
Thanksgiving is the best holiday, bar none. It has tons of food, drinking — but not Fourth of July-New Year’s Eve-St. Patrick’s Day-Halloween drinking — very little effort in terms of how festive you’re supposed to be, and football provides an easy way to avoid talking to your relatives. Thanksgiving forever!
Flannels Are Finally in Season
This is the only time of year when comfortable shirts are actually fashionable, so take advantage while you can.
The Pumpkin Spice Latte Debate Heats Up
Are Pumpkin Spice Lattes good? Are they actually bad? The answer is extremely subjective, but that doesn’t stop folks from passionately debating each other over the merits of a coffee drink.
The best thing about PSL debates is watching them. Generally, the people in the ‘for’ camp are like, “the drink tastes good,” and the ‘against’ camp counters with “WHY ARE YOU SO BASIC AAAAAHHHH.” It’s fun. Really.
Fall Has Columbus Day
Just kidding, no one cares about Columbus Day.
My Birthday Is in the Fall
This is actually the only reason for the list.
