An Autumn meme

Snagged from spikesgirl58
I had to Google at some questions to make sure I got term or reference right.

1.“Autumn” or “Fall”?
Autumn, I was taught British English in school, and Internet haven't ruined it completely yet. Plus, “Fall” begins some time in November, when everything is iced over.

2. Pumpkin Carving or Apple Picking?
Apple Picking, mostly by exclusion, as we don't carve pumpkings.
If I got it right, in terms that there are tons of apples to harvest right now. I bring a batch of apples to work every day just to spend them somewhere. And I am back on antihistamines until best of apples are over.

3. Halloween or Thanksgiving?

4. Cashmere or Flannel?
Cashmere, flannel simply isn't warm enough

5. Cool and Crisp or Warm and Foggy?
Cool and Crisp. It doesn't matter what temperature really is, it is always warmer with sun.

6. Yankee Candles or Roaring Fireplace?
Candles, but just because there is no fireplace in the reach.

7. Scarves or Berets?
Berets. I tried wrapping scarves several times, but I can't get it right. And berets are warmer.

8. Cinnamon or Nutmeg?
Cinnamon. I am not fond of it at all other times, but I like it in autumn, even in my tea.

9. Reading a Book or Watching a Movie?
Reading a Book. Wrapped up in soft fleece blanket in a corner of sofa, with scented candles burning at side table and a cup of hot tea with cinnamon and mint and a plate of apple cake. And a rain outside a window.

10. Halloweentown or Nightmare Before Christmas?
Nightmare Before Christmas, but likely skipping throught it to all songs.

11. Hot Chocolate or Apple Cider?
Hmmm... From thesse two I'd pick Apple Cider, but my choice would be Medovukha, just not factory-made one.

12. Wool Socks or Slippers?
Wool socks. And the taller, the better, knee-high are best.

13. Trick or Treat?

14. Marshmallows or Whipped Cream?
Whipped Cream

15. Jack or Sally?

16. Goosebumps or Are You Afraid of the Dark?
Neither. I am not too fond of horror movies and even less fond of parodies.

17. Plaid or Neutrals?

18. Coffee or Tea?
Tea. As much as I love taste of coffee, it destabilises my blood pressure for weeks.

19. Studyblr or Halloween Blog?
Even Googling didn't help me to understand what is Studyblr and definitely no on Halloween Blog.

20. Red or Gold?
Gold. It is the color of the best part of autumn - Golden Autumn, when sky id bright blue and trees are gold.

21. Blankets or Pillows?
Blankets. Big soft ones you can make a nest from.

22. Cabins or Cottages?
I am a bit unclear on difference here. But if you mean that Cottage is bigger, closer to civilisation and more equipped with comforts - then Cabin.

23. Scary or Spooky?
Spooky. I like to be a little spooked, but I don't like truly scary things and events.

24. Sweaters or Boots?
Boots. If your feet are cold or wet, it doesn't matter how warmly you are dressed overall, you will be cold.

25. Caramel Apples or Candy Apples?
Neither. Fresh apples are the best, and almost any way of cooking spoils them. Rare exceptions are pies/cakes and jams.

26. Hay Rides or Leaf Peeking
Leaf Peeking. But mostly it is a bonus to mushroom gathering.
