Thursday Thirteen #19: Autumn

Thirteen reasons why autumn is my favourite season ...

1. Crisp, cool mornings with a hint of mist ("Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness ...")
2. Golden brown leaves.
3. Walking through leaves crunchy with frost.
4. That optimistic new school (or homeschool) year feeling.
5. My birthday.
6. Comfort food for cold weather (soups, stews, apple crumbles)
7. Hot chocolate.
8. English apples
9. Bonfire Night (perhaps not the most appropriate holiday for a Catholic to enjoy, but I do love bonfires and fireworks).
10. Autumn feast days (Archangels, Guardian Angels, St.Therese, St.Francis, All Saints, All Souls)
11. Warm fluffy socks.
12. Snuggling under a cosy blanket.
13. Christmas just around the corner.
