My favorite season is summer. I love summer. There is no school. It's warm. The sun sets late. You can sit on your balcony and drink a beer and barbecue. I just think it's fabulous. My least favorite then obviously is winter, because the sun goes down early, you can't go on your balcony and relax, it's freezing cold, and it's just not an enjoyable season at all.

My favorite season is winter, because there's a lot of snow, and it's cold outside, and it's just beautiful. When the countryside is covered with snow, it's just perfectly white, and I think that's amazing. Also, I love to build snowman, have snowball fights with my friends, so that is definitely my favorite season. My least favorite season is summer, because it's too hot. I really don't like the heat.

My favorite season is springtime, because everything is getting all flowery and new and fresh again. My least favorite season, however, is fall because I know that it's going to be getting cold soon, and you can't predict if it's going to be a warm day or a cold day. And sometimes, you think it's going to be a warm day in the fall, but all of a sudden it gets very cold and you don't have your jacket with you.

My favorite season would be summer. It's pretty cold in Canada, and it's nice to have a long, sunny, dry summer, and there's a lot of outdoor things you can do then, and it just feels better. My least favorite is definitely winter, because it's cold, and you don't want to get outside, you want to stay inside more. I think it can be a little depressing.

My favorite season would probably be autumn. I love the changing of the leaves. I love the colors and the mountains. I love the crisp autumn wind that blows the leaves around. And I love walking around in that crisp autumn air to come home to a warm cup of hot chocolate.

Well, in my country, we've only got two seasons. It would be summer and winter. So, I'd say my favorite is summer, because of the sun and the warm weather, you can hang out with friends and do pretty much anything you want to do. I guess winter I don't like so much, because I can't handle the cold and there's really not that much to do when it's cold weather.
I love Autumn. I love the crispness of it. The humidity of summer is fading away and the air is cool, energetic, buzzing. Sweat doesn’t haunt every crevice of your body, your clothes aren’t damp after a long day at work.
Leaves crunch satisfyingly beneath your boots and you wake up on Sunday mornings to the sound of rain on the window pane, the sweet lull of the pitter-patter creating the perfect rhythm for a sleep in.
The world changes, sure the weather gets colder, but the atmosphere feels different, the air has a different flow. There is a distinct shift. Autumn brings a translucency that isn’t present in any of the other seasons, the light is heavier, diffused over the landscape, orange and burning. The air is lighter, the denseness of summer faded, breathing comes more easily. There is a crackle about, where the cool, fresh, and invigorating breezes meet the flame of light that perches on the tip of a hill in the afternoon. Autumn is my favourite season because it is electric.
I think one of the main things I truly adore about autumn, is that coolness in the air; that relief from summers hot gaze.You can wear jeans again, and light jumpers, cardigans, skirts and tights and boots. Beanies won’t cause you to break out in a sweat, and scarves are as functional as they are fashionable. You get to snuggle into blankets, spoon pillows and surrender to the warm and smothering caress of your favourite throw.
No more short shorts, singlets and other horrible, heat-preventing items of clothing that look great on a model, or Taylor Swift, but not on a short, chubby, extremely pale girl with very low self-esteem. I am much more comfortable in jeans, thank you very much, and that’s why I really love Autumn.
