Fall used to be my favorite season because it marked the end of a Houston Summer and let into a much milder winter. Since retiring Spring became my favorite season because it meant we were setting off on our travels to avoid the Houston summer.

Now that we are in England I expect Spring will still be a favorite as it marks the end of winter and we love seeing the early spring flowers carpeting the verges, parks and gardens.

I've often felt like it's the one I'm in.

Really enjoying fall, thirty degrees last night. Slept with the windows open till 4am when the furnace started at 60f. I fear some falls due to SAD, hopefully not this year.

Winter the days actually get longer and snow when you have nowhere you have to be is nice.

Always love spring, new year with a new beginning. Morels if you are lucky.

Summertime is great expecially if it's not 100F. Fresh fruits and berries.

As a kid, I loved summer. But once I got old enough that I didn't have to return to school, fall became the best season.

I like them all

I like them all but spring is probably my favorite because I am a gardener and love watching my garden sprout. I like them all though- Fall is such a relief after our sweltering summers, I love a fire in the fireplace and sweaters and jeans, the spring of course, and then the first hot summer days means BEACH! I get tired of summer and winter by the time they are done- so I'm happy to see the approach of every season- what little we have of them (except summer, we have a lot of summer) in Alabama.

Winters in central Florida are lovely. Windows and doors wide open, sunny and crisp. It even gets cool enough to wear long pants and a sweater sometimes....a real treat.

It's a tossup between Fall and Spring. By the time fall comes, I am ready for it after a long hot summer. The mosquitoes are gone, and that time before the rains come are lovely. But, there's something about the Springtime...an overall sense of rebirth.

Ski season is my favorite. Skied over 40 days last winter and looking to beat that this year.

I'd say fall because it means summer won't be back for a long time, as opposed to spring which means summer is soon to be here for several months.

winter is always the underdog though it is kinda a surprise that summer comes second to last

I think the poll is likely biased by the time of year you take it.

They say California has only two seasons: Green & Brown.

I prefer Green.
But, honestly, Brown's not too bad either.

Not true for me. But where you are is definitely a factor, e.g. Florida vs Maine.

And if this was an Ecuadorian forum...

Finland regularly shows up in polls as one of the happiest countries on earth.

When I asked a Fin about this, his reply: The poll was probably taken in a weekend during summer

Totally agree!

I voted fall, which is our best season here. But it is really a late Indian summer, warm and sunny, just cooler nights. We don't have winter here - our winter is really a fall, and we go straight to spring.
