As many of us in the U.S. and Canada begin to feel the presence of Fall creeping in, I started to wonder how important the different seasons are to most people. Do you look forward to the changing seasons? If you've moved away from an area with seasons to an area without, do you miss having seasons? What is your favorite season, and why?

Yes and I believe that fall is the best time of year around here in terms of consistent weather, apple and pumpkin picking, Football and the foliage.

I live where there are all 4 seasons. I am not looking forward to the winter season and could do without it!

I love fall the best, but wish winter didn't last quite so long and summer gets a bit hot for my taste. More spring/fall, less summer/winter doledrums. I like the seasons, but don't know whether I'd miss them or not, as I've never lived anywhere where there weren't significant difference between 'em.

Maryland has 4 distinct seasons which are almost even in duration. I enjoy this climate. However, it wouldn't be a deal-maker or deal-breaker for me if I had to move somewhere with a different climate.

I love the four seasons but like BCD said I wouldn't mind living in a different climate for some time.

The only time of year I get sick of the Weather on the East Coast is February/early March but then Spring rolls around and it's wonderful.

Fall and winter are nice FOR A TIME, but when they drag on and on for months, it gets old (and depressing) really fast.

Not for me - Fall weather is perfect and I don't see how it could ever "get old" considering it isn't even around very long. Winter can drag on as far north as I am, this is true.

Speaking from 20+ years in Chicago, winter drags on waaaay too long. The endless cloudy days were just too much for me. Hell, last year it snowed in May. No thanks.

I'd kill myself if it was warm and sunny all the time. How boring.

I like all four seasons and we get them in fairly equal shares here in CT. However, the season that I dislike the most is fall. I prefer spring foliage over fall foliage, because it signifies growth; fall signifies decay. I prefer winter over fall, because I like snow. Lots of snow and long periods of frigid cold and endless overcast.

Of course, my favorite weather is 78 and sunny, but I like to see change in weather patterns. Here in CT every month is different.

I also like it when winter drags on into April and we're still wearing winter jackets. I'm a homebody and like to spend time indoors playing video games and stuff. When it's warm and sunny out, I feel pressured to go outside, which is stupid, because all the roads are congested and the beaches are crowded as hell here in New England. NO THANKS!
