A change of seasons is just around the corner. The up coming season is unique in that it’s the only season with two names: autumn and fall. As a child, I was taught to call the season autumn. We would draw pictures of autumn depicting beautiful colored leaves and haystacks. I’ve lived on the Gulf Coast practically all my life. Leaves rarely change colors and I’ve never seen a haystack in my life. But,we were taught that represented autumn.
People, including myself, tend to refer to the season as fall and not autumn now. What happened to autumn? That’s a lovely sounding word.
What’s your preference for the name of the season: fall or autumn?
