Well, back in Illinois it would be when the weather got cooler (even though we get Indian Summer). But Caramel apples are in the stores here in the desert and we still get some rain (not a lot). But when Labor day hits, that is when I start cooking soups/chilis and do more baking!

I selected when the leaves change color and cooler temps. Only problem, we don't really get the leaves changing so much in Texas, I remember how beautiful it was when I lived in Maryland though.

It's kind of a toss up for me. I think it's officially fall when college football begins and I require a light jacket in the evening.

I selected 23 September, but yesterday and today were colder (upper 50's/low 60's), overcast, and rainy. It totally felt like Fall. However, I tranfered a History Channel special off my dvr yesterday called "The Real Story of Halloween," and felt like I was cheating (Halloween isn't fair game for me until 1 October). But I guess it's never too early as long as it's at least September.

I picked when the kids go back to school. My son started 8/31 this year... but I think its a combination. When we get our first cool day.. which was Tuesday (the day after labor day).. it was in the 60's and rainy with very low humidity... it defintely made me think of Fall and know that its not too far away... all of my Fall decorations went up this past weekend so its Fall at my house

As i live in the uk we never really get alot of sun but you can tell when the summer is definately over when the rain and cold stays for 4 out of the 7 days in a week. It tends to get dark earlier and earlier everyday and before you know whats happened its dark by 5 oclock in the afternoon and you realise that you havent seen the sun for the last month. But hey, i dont care, its a beautiful time of year with all the leaves changing colour and it means that we are getting that little bit closer......to.......CHRISTMAS!!!!!

when the kids go back to school.... which in the U.K is around 5th/6th september.

how fitting that it's my daughter's birthday on 23rd september and that is the official start of autumn, which is my favourite season and when i really get into 100% christmas build up mode.
