Its that time of year again where school starts and summer ends for most of the world. For me I prefer to live in a fantasy world where summer doesn’t end until mid-October so I can keep wearing shorts.
Most people would say that Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer and I guess I can agree with them. Schools are back in session, high school sports begin again, and the leaves begin to change. Don’t get me wrong, I love fall and everything that comes along with it; but why are we all in such a rush for it to start? I already saw an add that all pumpkin everything will be back at Dunkin’ at the end of the month. I think that everybody would agree with me that we could all use a few more weeks of sun and warm weather, let’s not rush right into fall and winter.
If you go to any store they’ve all already put out their “fall” decorations and Halloween stuff. Its still August (for a few more days) people, can’t you wait until we’re in the actual month? Before we know it Christmas decorations and sales will be creeping up and I’m just not ready for it. Let’s keep Halloween in the month of October and the rest of the fall stuff stored away until the leaves actually turn.
That being said, I do enjoy everything that comes with the fall season, football, playoff baseball, and corn mazes… I really like corn mazes. So I am excited for the fall season to start, but let’s not rush it okay? I want to enjoy the time I have left with the sun before it becomes that weird bright thing in the sky that we sometimes see from the months of December to April when the snow finally stops.
I like my summer months, I look better with a tan and I don’t have to bundle up like I’m exploring the frozen ice planet of Hoth when I go outside. Everybody is generally in a better mood during summer and there’s always so much to do. I know that winter is supposed to be “the most wonderful time of the year” with the holidays, which I always enjoy. But, people are always in such a rush for the next thing to happen.
I think that we all need to slow down a bit, and come to the conclusion that warm weather is just better than the frozen tundra that everybody seems to be in such a hurry for. To end my rant I’ll leave you with this question, after the fall season that everybody is so fond of, are you really ready to shovel snow off your car every morning before you go to work?
