Summer Is The Best Season Persuasive Essay

Summer is literally THE WORST. It is the brussel sprouts of seasons. It is hot. It is humid. It is miserable: it is pretty much hell on Earth.I hate summer. I hate it with all of my frigid black heart. I want to be cold 24/7, so summer is the antithesis of joy. It is a hot, sweaty vacuum that steals all the happiness from my life and leaves me a literal HOT MESS. Unless I am in a pool or on a beach, summer is of NO USE to me. It is a vast, desolate wasteland I am forced to waddle through every year. Did I mention I hate it?

But Meg, you protest, how can you hate summer so much? I get it--you'd think someone whose last name is SUMMERS would be all about this time of year, but that is not the case. I straight up HATE summer, and here are all the reasons why.

HEAT: We begin with the obvious. In a perfect world, it would never be hotter than like 74 degrees outside. I can even handle the low 80's, but once we're over 85 I AM DONE. By the time August rolls around and it's 102 degrees outside, I start fantasizing about moving to Alaska or Canada or anywhere but here. And who doesn't love those $75 million power bills you get every month because you're trying to keep your house cool? Or getting into a car that's basically a convection oven until the A/C kicks in?

HUMIDITY: Dry heat is one thing, but humidity: no... just.... NO. I went to Corpus Christi once and it was like 115 degrees outside, but I didn't notice because the humidity was so low. THAT AIN'T HAPPENING IN ALABAMA. Add 80% humidity and 90+ degree heat, and you have HADES. You end up drenched in sweat because there's nowhere for it to go--it can't evaporate because the air is already gross grossness. Humidity frizzes up the hair you spent an hour curling. It melts your makeup. It collects at the back of your neck in beads. It makes you feel like a swamp monster.

INSECTS: Summer is like peak bug season. DISGUSTING. That means I get to see a dang plague of grasshoppers, mosquitoes, flies, and other pests every time I set foot outdoors. Oh, and bees-- SO MANY BEES. I know honeybees are vital to the ecosystem, so I'm not hating on them; play on, playas. I'm talking about wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and all the other jerks of the insect world. They see you out on a picnic and are like, "Oh, hey! Let me swarm around your food and then get super aggressive when you try to get me to leave." They're pretty much like that one relative you didn't invite to the cookout but he showed up drunk anyway--except they can sting you. I see a bee and I'm OUT.

SPORTS: There are zero good sports in summer. Baseball? Not interested. Tennis? LOL. Soccer? Maybe--some of those dudes are pretty easy on the eyes if y'all get what I'm saying. Golf? Zzzzzzz. I hate summer because it stands between me and my favorite season: Football. I actually count down the days until kickoff. ROLL TIDE.

FOOD: I have no issue with any food. Ever. I am an equal opportunity foodie. My problem with food in the summer is this: you eat it, and then you're miserable. If you eat a full meal and then go outside you're in agony: hot, sweaty, bloated agony.

CLOTHES: People get wicked judgmental in the summer. Maybe the heat goes straight to a person's brain and limits his/her ability to act like a decent human being. I don't know. I'm not a scientist. I do know that it's June and I am already sick of seeing people post stupid memes and someecards making fun of fat people. Like, LOL FATTIES CAN'T WEAR SHORTS or WHY IS THAT WHALE WEARING A SWIMSUIT? LOL LOL LOL FAT PEOPLE ARE DUMB. People looooove body-shaming in the summer, and I am notdown with that. People should be allowed to wear whatever they want (within reason-- you can't wear Speedos to church, ok?) without the fear of being judged. I have a friend who took a picture of a girl at the mall--just a regular girl at the mall--and posted it to Facebook, mocking the girl's "fat" legs. That's MEAN. All bodies are good bodies, and if you don't like the way someone's legs or stomach or arms look that's YOUR problem. Be an adult and shut up about it.

FOMO: Summer is when FOMO reaches its apex. (FOMO, btw, means Fear of Missing Out.) Friends are posting pictures of pristine beaches, blue pools, music festivals, and steaks on the grill, and where are you? At work. Or dealing with your toddler's fifth temper tantrum. Or just sitting by a fan because GOOD GOD IT'S HOT OUT THERE. Pretty much everyone you know is doing something cool and awesome right now, and you are not. Thanks, summer--I hate you.

There are many more reasons I loathe summer so--what about y'all? Are you a fellow summer hater? Or do you think I'm being ridiculous? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

    Fall is also my favorite season because you can stay inside and snuggle. You can get to bed at 7pm without hearing any noise. It gets dark earlier. The cold represents the warmer season. The leaves are also very beautiful and colorful.

  • Katharine L Sparrow 3 years agofrom Massachusetts, USA

    I live in the Northeast U.S., so summer is my favorite time of year. Generally not too hot here all summer long. In September I go all melancholy and it's hard to avoid feelings of depression. However, I do agree that the scenery is exquisite and it's a good time to do outdoor things before the cold of winter sets in. I absolutely LOVED the poem your Mom taught you! Going to keep that one! Great hub!

    ah... applecsmith! I thought about you and this hub today. I got to drive through the Napa Valley today on my way to Cobb Mountain. The grapes in the valley are all starting to turn their winter colors... but the maples on the way to Cobb were in awesome display. Great hub!

  • Carrie Smith 6 years agofrom Dallas, Texas

    Thank you for the amazing comments. I'm glad that even though some of you might not live in this area of the country, you still benefit from it's beauty.

    Admiral - so glad you understood my reference to "tree stars" :)

  • Admiral_Joraxx 6 years agofrom Philippines

    Excellent post! Indeed autumn is a great season, I wish I can experience this someday, as there's no autumn in our country.=) Hey Applecsmith, I'm also a great fan and follower of The Land Before Time and their favorite "Tree stars". It was a great movie. 1 vote up and beautiful.

  • Aceblogs 6 years agofrom India

    Autumn season has always proven out to be best for me for past 7 years . Hope this story continues for me in future as well. Very nicely explained hub. Images out there are very colorful and so full of life. Thanks

    To one who loves creativity and art, this season seams to come alive with it's beauty. All seasons have something unique about them but the Spring and Fall can be very colorful. Lovely photos. Voted Up! Take Care :)



  • jean2011 6 years agofrom Canada

    I too like the comfortable temperatures, and yes the lovely colours of leaves. Great for picture taking. I voted this hub beatiful. Thank you for sharing!

  • TattooKitty 6 years agofrom Hawaii

    I agree- autumn is the best season! I've always been enchanted by the beauty of the leaves changing color. Yet, living in Hawaii, I've never been able to experience it in person. Definitely on my bucket list! Beautiful hub ;)

  • Om Paramapoonya 6 years ago

    Lovely hub. I grew up in Thailand where most trees are evergreen. The first year I moved to the U.S., I was really amazed to see a bunch of trees changing color. :)

  • Aeron Wright 6 years ago

    Great photos! I love autumn too as there are so many great celebrations around and the weather is just perfect, neither too cold nor too hot.

  • RTalloni 6 years agofrom the short journey

    Yes! Bravo on this fall season essay! :) To have one's mother quote such a poem--how lovely! Beautiful hub in every way--thank you for sharing it with us. Voted up.

    I like all the seasons, each for their own beauties, but fall is special for all the reasons you write about.

  • Carrie Smith 6 years agofrom Dallas, Texas

    Thank you for the great comments. I hope everyone gets the opportunity to see the fall season in East Texas sometime in their life. It's breathtaking!

  • Kristin Trapp 6 years agofrom Illinois

    The colors in that first photograph are just magnificient. I hope our trees are that colorful this year in IL. Autumn is hands-down my favorite season.

  • Peggy Woods 6 years agofrom Houston, Texas

    The trees don't show as much color down here as they do up north...but it is still a beautiful time of year. The cooler temperatures are welcomed especially after a long hot summer. You have given some great reasons why it is your favorite time of year and I'm sure that many people will agree.

  • katrinasui 6 years ago

    I love Autumn! You have explained the topic very well.

  • Marisa Hammond Olivares 6 years agofrom Texas

    Beautiful images! Fall is so colorful - wish we could experience it in South Texas :(

  • Carrie Smith 6 years agofrom Dallas, Texas

    I couldn't agree more! Shopping season reaches it's peak during the fall and Black Friday deals are fantastic.

    I enjoy the smells, sounds and tastes of fall so much. Reading all these great comments has made my day, thanks a bunch.

  • MonetteforJack 6 years agofrom Tuckerton, NJ

    Fall is definitely my favorite season. It is the most comfortable weather for me. The winds are just right and the air is scented with falling leaves and earthy pumpkins and squash. Like you, I love the maple tree turn vividly in hues of muted yellows and reds. Materially, I look forward to this season because this is the time of the year that I truly shop for next year's summer stuff and other things on Black Fridays. Like you, the fall is the start of frequent family gatherings. Still, it is relaxing ... The smell of coffee brewing is more intoxicating at this time, so with hot cocoa, served with a bit of peppermint and mini-marshmallows. I also love Fall because of Thanksgiving. This is a breathtaking hub, I could go on and on why I love Fall. Thanks!

  • cardelean 6 years agofrom Michigan

    Fall is definitely the most beautiful season. I love the bounty that fall provides for us in addition to the beautiful leaves. Thank you for sharing such wonderful thoughts about fall.

  • AmandaJoy 6 years ago

    Fall is my favorite season too! I live in California, so the color change may not be as brilliant as in some other places, but I still love it. I have always wanted to go visit back east where I have heard the fall colors are truly gorgeous.

  • Dave Mathews 6 years agofrom NORTH YORK,ONTARIO,CANADA

    Autumn is my favorite season too. Not just for all the beauty in color, but also for the fact that autums is harvest time for many of our farm produce and fruits.

  • SJmorningsun25 6 years ago

    I love autumn, too! Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

  • Carrie Smith 6 years agofrom Dallas, Texas

    It's so nice to hear that everyone else loves the fall season like I do. It's a great time to take photos, enjoy the weather and reminisce.

    I almost love spring as much as fall, but not quite. Thanks for the great comments.

  • inaniLoquence 6 years agofrom Singapore

    Autumn is absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately, we don't have it here in Southeast Asia. Instead, we enjoy/suffer rainy and dry seasons throughout the year. It's the tropical paradise but it would be fantastic to experience the Autumn months!

  • Victoria Lynn 6 years agofrom Arkansas, USA

    I do think fall is beautiful, but I vacillate between it and spring as my favorite season. Fall reminds me that winter is coming, and I loathe winter. Spring gives me hope that warmer, brighter days are coming. Still, the colors of fall are incredible. And the poem is adorable. Very nice hub! I voted many things on this one!

  • ignugent17 6 years ago

    I agree Fall is the best season not too hot and not too cold. My husband loves it also. The thing that I really don't like is the sun goes down early and I can't enjoy more the temperature outside , cook outs and look at nature at its best. I still love Fall second to Spring, then Summer last is Winter. Your pictures are very beautiful thanks.

  • marellen 6 years ago

    I also wrote a hub on this same subject. It seems to be most everyones favorite. Love you pics and article. I could just feel your excitement. Enjoy.....

  • Sciborgs 6 years agofrom New York

    Nice pictures used! Fall is easily my favorite season, beautiful scenery, that perfect "not to hot, not to cold weather", and, of course, Halloween is in the Fall, love Halloween!

  • JS Matthew 6 years agofrom Massachusetts, USA

    Fall is my favorite season! I got my camera ready this year and waiting for the leaves to change, then I can publish a Photo Journey! I am lucky to live in New England! Great Hub! Voting up and sharing!


  • Mamadrama 6 years agofrom Upstate NY

    Best Season EVER!! I love Autumn!

  • flagostomos 6 years agofrom Washington, United States

    I hear you. I absolute love autumn as well. Something about it reminds me of simpler times, back when I was a kid and Fall meant going back to school. My favorite is Saturday afternoon, when the sun is starting to head under the horizon and the afternoon sky feels hazy. It's like bright but not bright at the same time. The air smells crisp and life just comes to a stand still.

    But to be honest with you I love all the seasons for different reasons.

  • David Stillwell 6 years agofrom Sacramento, California

    I love the Autumn months. I enjoy the way the trees change and the weather can be warm and cool at the same time. The sky is full of geese and clouds and the wind is a flutter with all that nature must do to prepare for winter. A really great hub Applecsmith! very well written and full of wisdom.

  • andrewwilliams63 6 years ago

    When the sun is out Autumn is beautiful, unfortunately that doesn't happen much in the UK!
