Football is more popular in the South due to other reasons such as it is a big event for a lot of communities, talent and in turn, investment in the sport.
Doesn't the CFL play during the summer?

I enjoy football in cold weather. But I donít have to play it.

I could tell you that from Decembers growing up in Miami whenever we would get an actual cold night, we (me, my siblings and my dad) would get in the mood to sing Christmas carols and look at the Christmas lights. The chillier air changes the whole aspect. It gets one hyped up for holiday traditions in ways that constant warmth doesn't. I will say the same is true for places that don't have summer. You don't get to enjoy the pool or barbecues or other activities the same way. I love doing things in every season. This past summer I went tubing on a river this coming winter I wanna go snow tubing. Different activities for every season and I want my children to grow up with that because I did not.
Again, agree. I took my kid to "pumpkin patches" in south Texas for a few years and it was 90 degrees. It's odd.

Variety is the spice of life. And speaking of spice, pumpkin spice tastes better when it's cold out.

I like cold weather football better. Beginning of fall, shouldn't be 95 degrees.

Summer into the mid/late Fall. Iíve watched Grey Cups when there was snow on the ground.

IMO the fall color in that region is there, it's just more muted.
More or less a feeling of this

The poster said "coastal plains," though. While interior areas of the South certainly can put on good shows (especially in the elevated Appalachian areas), the coastal plain doesn't have much color; most trees are green year-round, and even most of those that do shed go through quick, tropical-pattern replacement cycles.

I'm not talking interior south or the Appalachians. There ARE deciduous trees and shrubs along the coast, they just don't tend to put on a vibrant colorful show in the way people typically think of fall foliage. I've had family in Mobile for over twenty years, they do experience a fall foliage change, just not much of one.

I think it’s still nice, particularly in comparison with the gulf coast. The red foliage is most often associated with maples in the fall. Also, a moist growing season followed by cool sunny days in the fall with cold overnight temperatures produce the most brilliant foliage. We go to Maine every October so we keep an eye on the temperatures.

Are "change of seasons" overrated?

No they are not! Absolutely not. If anything they are underrated.
I never realized how great they are until I did not have them any longer and now I miss them greatly.

Where do you live now that "doesn't have seasons"?
