What Your Favorite Season Says About You

What Your Favorite Season Says About You

Find out what your favorite time of the year says about your personality.

As we find ourselves moving from the long, warm days of summer to the shorter, chillier days of fall, we also find ourselves divided. There are those of us who can’t wait to sip on hot (pumpkin!) coffee drinks and bake fall fruit into autumn-flavored treats, and those of us who are holding tight to the last days at the beach and by the pool. And then there are those of us who can’t wait for winter, with its snowy days and cozy sweaters, or even spring with its many opportunities for rain boots and gardening. No matter which team you're on, make no mistake: Your favorite season speaks volumes about your personality! Here’s what your pick for best time of the year says about you.

Summer: People often cite summer as their favorite season because of what they don’t have to do during the hottest time of the year: bundle up in bulky sweaters and boots, drive in treacherous conditions, or in some cases, work! In short, they enjoy the freedom of the season -- whether that means being able to slip on a maxi dress to run out for errands or vacations filled with lazy days sipping lemonade on the back porch. So if you’re a summer person, you’re likely a free spirit who tends to be comfortable in your own skin. Others may commend you for having a sunny personality and admire you for your ability to light up a room. You’re not one to let an opportunity pass you by -- you believe in taking the bull by the horns!

Fall: Fans of fall can’t get enough of the crisp air, the flame-hued leaves, living in a sweatshirt, and baking pie and other comfort foods, just to name a few of the season's delights. If you count yourself among this group, you may be something of a traditionalist, as well as a social butterfly, especially when it comes to family get-togethers. After all, autumn is the opening act of the holiday season, and you’re probably one to start planning ahead for all the festive fun to be had with loved ones in the months ahead. You’re known to be loyal, creative, and cheerful, but probably just as content on the couch watching a football game as you would be at a big Halloween soiree. Your friends adore you for being so unapologetically you -- which is supremely salt of the earth!

Winter: If you look forward to pulling on boots, wrapping yourself in the warmest of sweaters, stringing up holiday lights, and sipping hot cocoa after playing in the snow with your kids, you may be particularly adept at putting a whimsical spin on the challenges you experience in life. After all, you’re able to see beauty in even the shortest, darkest days. Sure, you may be more reserved and not necessarily wear your heart on your sleeve all the time. But those closest to you know exactly how you feel. Similarly, you may be friendly with many different people but consider only a select, exclusive group of friends your VIPs. Even if it’s in a quiet, measured way, you would do just about anything for your family -- no questions asked!

Spring: After a long winter, just about everyone looks forward to the first warm days of spring, but perhaps you’re especially fond of temperate and rainy days, more daylight hours, clothes and decor in pastel colors, and the beginning of baseball season. Fittingly, you’re a go-getter who doesn’t shy away from curveballs that life might throw your way. You may even be something of a natural-born leader who believes in setting goals and then achieving them in a pragmatic, step-by-step way. This isn’t to say that you don’t also have an idealistic, romantic side. (After all, we’re talking about the season that brings spring fever and weddings galore!) Others likely see you as creative, innovative, easygoing -- and reliably upbeat!
