10 Pros And Cons Of Autumn

Navigating the Season's Upsides and Downsides

Personally, Autumn is one of my favorite seasons. The air is crisp but not too cold, there is so much to do, and you're not collapsing from the heat. I asked some friends and family what their favorite and least favorite parts of Fall. Below is the list I put together:

1. Pro: Leaves change color

The scenery changes from green leaves to orange, red, and yellow. The atmosphere brightens from the color change but dulls from the fog. It is a peaceful medium.

2. Pro: Clothes get cozier

Sweaters and long sleeves are starting to be worn without dying from the heat. However, shorts are still wearable without your legs freezing. Throw on shorts and a long sleeve shirt and you’ll feel comfortable in what you're wearing all day.

3. Pro: Football!

Football is one of the best sports in the Fall. The tailgates create a closer community and the games bring students together while they cheer on their favorite teams. All in all, they create a lot of memories for everyone.

4. Pro: Peaceful walks

The air gets so cool, the wind is crisp all making long walks bearable. If you walk at night, you’ve probably seen a harvest moon - it is the best looking moon ever. The sky is clear and the moon is orange as if a pumpkin was sitting in the sky.

5. Pro: Fun fall activities

Apple Picking is one of the most fun activities to do with a group of friends, your family, or even on a date. Another great fall activity is carving pumpkins. I remember when my brothers and I would sit at our kitchen table and carve pumpkins the day before Halloween. It was always so much fun.

6. Pro: Start of holidays

When fall rolls around so do the holidays that follow: Halloween is right around the corner and then Thanksgiving is next, the day where you can eat as much as you want without being judged. However, always remember the meaning behind this holiday. While you shove food in your face, remember to be thankful.

7. Con: Allergies and colds

As the cool weather begins, the colds and allergies follow in its track. No one likes being sick especially in such a great season. Allergies are definitely a con.

8. Con: Inconsistent weather

During Fall, there is nice crisp weather in the morning then as the day goes on it gets hotter and hotter. At night, it is very cold compared to earlier that day. The weather fluctuates too much which makes choosing an outfit pretty difficult.

9. Con: Raking leaves

This is a chore that is not fun for anyone. Once you have all of the leaves picked up, you want to jump in the pile, spreading out the leaves again just so you can jump back in. It is torturous cycle.

10. Con: Summer is over and winter is coming

Winter is without a doubt my least favorite season. I get cold very fast and I don’t like it. During fall I can bear the cold weather because it is not completely freezing, it’s cool– there’s a difference.
