Halloween is better in the north

I feel it is debatable on what is a better location for Halloween.

When I lived up north it really felt like fall.

My parents would turn on the home heater, the leaves changed and all the vegetables were in season. My mother could easily purchase homemade apple cider, take us apple picking and buy zucchini and squash. It was very fall oriented in our area. However, the weather in the fall is quite unpredictable. I vividly remember complaining about wearing a coat over my costume every year. I could never be a mermaid or anything that barely covered you. I was always an eskimo or some animal that was layered in fur. The cold was that severe. Now I live down south. The weather is so much better. The trick or treaters will get to enjoy 75 degree weather. It is the perfect temperature to walk around and not overheat. I haven’t had to turn on the heater yet. As a matter of fact, I have been able to turn off the AC. I let the natural air blow through my home and clean everything out. No HVAC required right now. It doesn’t feel like fall however. Everything is green and flowering. The birds are still singing and the squirrels are playing around. You have to buy pumpkins at the grocery store if you want them. The cider isn’t homemade and I haven’t seen an apple orchard. It just really isn’t the same. I hate to say freezing weather for the fall is better, but it might be.
