I know that there are a couple of different ways in which seasons can be defined – I do it the Meteorological way, which means that today is the last day of Summer. I can see the logic of doing it the astronomical way, except that it would be mean that Winter would begin on 21/22 December (so immediately before Christmas) and Summer would begin on 21/22 June (so on the longest day). I like the idea of grouping the months far better – so September, October and November are Autumn.
The other day I read this post on The Spike about how much the author is looking forward to Autumn. I am too – but then, I do enjoy drizzle. September is my favourite month – it’s crisp in the morning but then warms up as the day progresses. I love the light in September. Plus (because I am a dork), I really enjoy the Back to School feeling. It’s the time of year when school was most enjoyable – still a novelty AND not a lot was expected of you in the first few weeks of the school year.
