    since i grew up in texas we didn't have much of a "fall" - it usually went from hot and humid to cool and humid with the trees turning brown over night. one year though we had a huge pile of leaves in my front yard and my dog and i played for hours in them...

    I find fall pretty depressing, for the most part, but I always liked Halloween night. I hated trick-or-treating; didn't see what the big deal was. So my family and I would always go out and have a night together--usually dining out and a movie, but sometimes other stuff.
    Now that I have a family of my own, we carry on the tradition.

    I love fall...the changing of the leaves, the smell of the damp earth, the crisp feel of the air, and the way hot apple cider warms you up from inside out. I never really got into dressing up for Halloween, and I'm not too keen on anything scary (I hate horror movies), but did go on a haunted hayride once that was awesome.

    The beginning of fall always excites me. I think it's because I associate it with the start of the school year.

    I'm not into the reduced daylight. That totally sucks. And I know it affects my moods. I try to use "natural light" light bulbs to compensate, and make sure I take breaks at work to go outside and let the sun shine on my face.

    But mostly it makes me feel nostalgic. I don't know why. Although I also feel like "Oh, great. Christmas is coming up, and I have NO idea what to get everyone!!!" ;)

    Halloween makes me want to watch scary movies. Lots of them.

    Thanksgiving doesn't do too much for me. The 4 days off from work rock, though. If I can go on a mini vacation and/or go drive to see my Sister who lives in another state, it's totally cool. Otherwise, I'd rather visit with friends and relatives, but w/o having to cook! :) [If they are smart, they shouldn't want me to cook either...]

    Christmas makes me want to put so many Christmas lights on a tree that the poor thing is going to droop like the tree in a Charlie Brown Christmas. And it feels magical.

    And January... I know spring is a long ways off, but I always feel like January 1st is the start of the weather getting better, probably because the sun is coming back.

    Oof. You wanted special fall memories, and I waxed on about fall feelings.

    I moved into my first apartment in October of 1990. I remember not knowing how to make meatballs, so I made spaghetti with sauce and put pieces of bologna in it. :) I then lay down on the living room floor and watched VH1 on cable. The video flavor of the month was "Silent Lucidity". It was totally cool to be on my own like that. Very scary, but totally cool.

    Fall is by far my favorite time of the year. My favorite fall memories are bonfires and hayrides and going to the orchard for apples when I was a kid.

    the crisp smell in the air, the crunch of the leaves, the brilliant colors as the trees make one last bid for your attention.

    the pace of life slows just a little, we begin to reflect on what we have done with the year prior. at least for those of us in the north, we begin to plan for the winter.

    i love fall.

    I was always excited to go back to school, and that's what I associate fall with. Also, I love the idea of people walking around in costumes, even though masks scare the bejeezus out of me.

    When I was a kid, my family and I always went to NH to visit my aunt, uncle and cousins to look at the foliage. I wasn't that into the leaves, but I loved the trip!

    My dad would rake all the leaves up high in the yard, and we would play in them. It was the bestest ever!
