Where I am from, the east coast of Canada, we get a beautiful show of reds, golds, purples and greens on our many deciduous trees. After a rainy summer, the sun seems to stay around more often and this is the best time of year for outdoor activities, especially weddings. The Farmers Market in Halifax is at its best and I can pull out my favorite jacket, and all my earth toned accessories that were hiding under a pile of bright colored earrings all summer. The temperature will still rest right around 20C/68F until the end of the month. Best time of year for jean skirts, long cardigans and deck shoes. This is also the highlight of surfing in Nova Scotia.

Where I live now, the Arctic, Autumn has a different meaning all together. The return of the Northern Lights, more darkness (yes maybe I can sleep!) a cooling off from the almost constant blast of 30C/85F weather and the return of my Canada Goose parka and fur hat. Autumn is a blip on the season radar here. The last river fire of the season and any last minute canoeing and fishing will have to happen within the first few weeks of September. My Rocket Dog boots will be pulled out, which seem to be the only fashionable piece I have that I can actually wear up here and survive. It will drop to 0C/33F by Septembers end.
