Fall is nice and a cold, snowy Christmas & New Year is fun too.

Ideally it would be in the low 80's to upper 70's with 40-50% humidity or so until November... November would be in the upper 60's with fall color, pumpkins, etc. December and the first few days of January would be in the 30's with snow at Christmas and New Years. Then on January 2nd it would be back to the upper 70's, low 80's, warming up to the upper 80's, low 90's in June and going until late September/early October.

Don't I wish

LOL - that is a dream that I am sharing with you except I would like a shorter span of 90's.

can we knock the humidity back in your dream situation during the 90% days to say 20%? If so, count me on board.

Again, to each their own; however, I do think there is a bias in some people who THINK the holidays are just not the "same" in a warmer climate.

For those of us raised in the U.S., in school we are fed these images of Thanksgiving with pilgrims and native americans in New England. I think that translates into assocations with how the holidays should be spent (i.e., in the cold).

I don't buy it. There is nothing written in stone that says the holidays are only "real" in a cold climate. Again, the Australians spend Xmas on the beach....it's their high warm season. It's how you've been conditioned.....if you grew up down under your perspective might be quite different.

I agree. Was just having a similar thought while driving today in the 90+ degree heat--I felt odd longing for the end of summer as one is conditioned to yearn for summer growing up (since it means the end of the school year).

Don't you know? Christ-mas celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, when Jesus was born, the shepherds were building snowmen while they watch their flock. Even Santa watched Christ birth's and brought him gifts he dropped besides a a lightened pine tree. So no snow no christmas.

I live in New Jersey so as you would expect, I associate the holidays with cold weather.

I spent a Thanksgiving in South Florida and while it was nice, it just wasn't the same. I'd rather be indoors on a cold, cloudy day eating turkey and watching football up north than sitting by a pool in Florida in 80 degree weather.

Everyone has their own preferences. To each his own.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays..., Unfortunately, since most years, it's still too hot & humid at the end of October to put on a really creative Halloween costume, I go up north where I can go all out & not faint from heat exhaustion. Unless I decide on a costume that requires very light clothing & little to no covering up. On the flip side to that..., the girls are alot more comfortable in extremely skimpy outfits than they would be somewhere up north where it's much cooler, especially at night. Trust me, wearing a furry costume is no fun when it's 80-85 degrees as the LOW temp w/ 70-80% humidity. (At Night !!!)...,
