Hello Autumn Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Hello Autumn Giveaway Hop, hosted by Review Wire Media and Chatty Patty’s Place!

Labor Day may not be until next week, but Fall is certainly on the horizon. The temperatures haven’t really dropped – at all – here in the Atlanta area but the endless summer days have given way to evenings that are shorter if not cooler.

Meteorologically, Autumn doesn’t start until September 22 this year, but that just marks the calendar day when day and night are of equal length. It happens in the Spring, too, but on the upside as the days start getting longer.

Climatologically, it won’t be Fall here until probably late in October at the earliest. On the other hand, when we lived in Anchorage, Fall was usually early September, with a nip already in the air and the possibility of snow before the end of the month. Summers in Anchorage were lovely, winters were interminable, Autumn was so quick that if you blinked you missed it and Spring was mud season.

Here, Summer is hot, Spring and Fall are both lovely, and Winter just kisses us. The leaves do turn and fall, but the snow mostly doesn’t. And I like it that way.

What about you? What’s your favorite season, or your favorite thing about this season? Answer in the rafflecopter for a chance at the choice between a $10 Amazon Gift Card or books from the Book Depository in the same amount. This giveaway is open to all the many, many places that the Book Depository ships!

Hello Autumn Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Hello Autumn Giveaway Hop, hosted by Review Wire Media and Chatty Patty’s Place!

Fall may not officially begin until September 23 this year, but now that it is after Labor Day it certainly feels like Fall – no matter what the weather might be. There’s something about the Labor Day holiday that just marks the beginning of the end of the year. Of course, that something probably has something to do with memories of going back to school, marking that the summer holidays were officially over even if the meteorological season was not.

Labor Day also used to signify a whole bunch of weird wardrobe do’s and don’t that have thankfully gone by the wayside over the decades. There used to be a whole crazy business of not wearing white – except of course for “winter white” – after Labor Day. Or before Memorial Day for that matter. The same rule applied to seersucker suits for men – not that one sees too many of those anymore, either.

So what’s your favorite thing about the change in seasons from summer to fall? Answer in the rafflecopter for your chance at a $20 Amazon Gift Card or $20 worth of books from the Book Depository.
