As somebody who is very stuck in her British ways I am obsessed with the seasons. Absolutely hate summer and adore winter. I would take dark nights, cold and bitter air, even snow over sticky unpredictable (summertime) weather any day. This being said I am ecstatic that Autumn has finally arrived. Many people know that England isn’t very renowned for its amazing summer days and glorious sunshine – thankfully. The one thing England does do well is Autumn and Winter. The 1st September marked this change in glorious fashion. People on the streets of London donned scarfs, thicker coats and boots. The most significant marker for me is the return of pumpkin spiced latte in Starbucks. I am currently sat writing this post in Starbucks, PSL in hand.
England feels like an Autumn/Winter country. The crunch of the brown fallen leaves as you walk the bustling streets. The rise of people out and about who are ready to return from hibernation that took over them during the summer months. I love nothing more than stepping out in the morning to the crisp air that sharply hits the back of your throat. Dark nights and bright lights on every street is a big part of what makes it special to me. It feel homely. I could go on and on forever about all the things that make it so special to me.
I suppose this topic is a great debate amongst many people. Summer or winter? My answer is simple, winter every time.
What is your favourite season? What makes it so special to you? These are questions we can all answer and most probably all answer differently.
