What is your favourite season?

What is your favourite season? What is your gender? I am trying to see if there is a relation of season to gender. If you don't feel like posting your gender, walk away from this thread.

In my current latitude

1. Spring
2. Fall
3. Summer
4. Winter

In the St. Lawrence River Valley:

1. Summer
2. Spring
3. Fall
4. Winter

In Hawaii:

No difference

Gender? Obvious. I carry a sword.

In order from best liked to least liked season:

Spring - everything is coming back to life
Summer - the beach, the mountains, getting out just for the hell of it.
Fall - leaves changing and the air is cooling down
Winter - cold, wet, dreary and very little color. Only thing to do is ride the trainer and plan next year's garden

And I'm a guy.

I'm male and my favorite season is Fall. After that, it goes:

Spring
Winter
Summer

There is a huge, huge gap between winter and summer.

The best one is hunting season.

Although, as far as actual seasons, my favorite depends on location. Summer is my favorite in Michigan, fall and spring are my favorite in Arizona, and in the Santa Fe Taos area, I think it's pretty nice year round.

I guess spring because I can do all the activites that I like.

The only season I dont like is the period of 30-40 degrees between fall/winter and winter/spring because I cant ski/golf and my bike rides are short and sometimes miserable with rain.

Oh and I am male and I like snow on the ground.

M, Fall.

I have a theory that the season you are born in becomes your favorite season. I'm a Sept birthday, right at the transition to fall.

I like fall, not for the colours, etc. but because the weather in Texas is cooler but without the violent storms we get in the spring here. Male

Thread asks for favourite season, not seasoning.
OP also included sample pictures.

season:
–noun
1. one of the four periods of the year (spring, summer, autumn, and winter), beginning astronomically at an equinox or solstice, but geographically at different dates in different climates.

NOT

seasoning:
–noun
1. salt or an herb, spice, or the like, for heightening or improving the flavor of food.
