Leaves trade their greens for gold, orange, and red. The chill in the air lures sweaters from closets and cabinets. The moon steals a few minutes of daylight from the sun each day. It’s autumn, my favorite season.
I love autumn for its colors, flavors (there’s more to the season than pumpkin spice, y’all), fashion, weather—and spookiness. October marks the beginning of the spooky season, which lasts through January. Winter is spooky. (Telling ghost stories at Christmas is a tradition I want to see resurrected.) Ghoulies and goblins and ghosties, oh my! They feel out of place in the spring and summer. The autumnal equinox marks their return home.
My viewing and reading habits shift in the fall. During the bright, sunny, warm times of the year, I seek out light, fun, breezy entertainment. My habits adopt a darker bent come fall. Bring on the horror movies, the ghost stories, the tales of the malevolent and macabre. What about you? Does your taste in books, movies, and TV change with the weather? What entertains you during these dark, chilly days?
