All Four Seasons Ranked, in My Opinion. (Spoiler Alert: Fall is the Best)

Emmy Williams, Staff Writer

With the coming change of season from summer to fall, I’ve been pondering which season is really the best. My credibility is considerable, seeing as I have experienced the coldest of winters in Minnesota, and the hottest of summers here in Georgia, and while I enjoy the benefits of each season to a great extent, there is a clear hierarchy showing which season truly deserves the title of the “Best Season.” Without further ado, here is my definitive ranking of the four seasons:

4. Hell’s Attic, aka Summer

One of my most unpopular opinions is that of my opinion on summer. Yes, I understand that it’s supposed to be a relaxing, leisurely break for school. I still hate it: sorry not sorry. The bad greatly outweighs the good when it comes to this season. The heat in Georgia is borderline unbearable and sunburns are painful. The worst part, however, is the portion of summer where the break is over, and the season is not. During these two wretched months each day brings a higher degree of smelting heat, and yet we as students are without the freedom of summer.

3. The Land of the Pollen, aka Spring

We all know the saying: April showers bring May flowers. While that is true, and I do appreciate the May flowers, the looming threat of rain at all times is something I’d rather not deal with.

Not only this, but April showers also bring humidity, and humidity brings mosquitoes, a nuisance older than life itself. Lastly, let’s not forget what could possibly be the most miserable side effect of spring: allergies. If you’re like me and you’re a victim of a pollen allergy, spring may possibly be one of your least favorite seasons, too.

2. No Snow For Georgians, aka Winter

Although winter in Georgia could be described as warm in comparison to the frigid winters of my birth state, Minnesota, it still gets decently cold here in Georgia. To me, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I like layering up in warm coats, thick socks, and cozy sweaters. Another reason that winter is a close second for the best season is because of holidays. From religious holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa, to the celebration of the New Year, holidays make the world a happier place during the winter season.

1. The (Actual) Most Wonderful Time of the Year, aka Fall

I absolutely love fall. I love chai tea lattes. I love cozy sweaters. I love the orange and red leaves that fall from trees. And I absolutely love Halloween. Although I don’t dress up in costumes anymore, watching horror movies and eating candy is an experience that everyone should take part in. Something about Halloween makes me feel a happiness that is completely indescribable. Also, Halloween has the absolute best holiday music, with the exception of Christmas. Who doesn’t love a good Ghostbusters dance party?

All in all, everyone is entitled to their own opinions on the seasons. My opinions, however, are the only correct ones, and nothing can change my mind.
