    Best month and why

    October. Sports. The only sport not really in the picture is golf
    but if you have an MLB team in the running and your excited to see
    the other three major leagues get started this is the month.

    It may not be beach weather but it's generally sunny and the seasonal changes are beautiful. Sorry you southerners miss out on that

    October almost gets away (halloween) with the hype months of November and December but it's minimal unless you have small kids

    February is my favorite because that is usually the month where we break through the darkness of winter. There are always a few nice days in that month that make me appreciate the return of the sun. The dark days of winter here in New England are tough as I'm sure they are there too, In December it will be dark at 330 here.

    Also, no fucking allergies or ticks or mosquitoes or mushrooms everywhere in February. I don't want to make a final Best Month decision yet because there's a strong case to be made for a month from either winter, summer, or fall here, but I love when the air is free of pollen and gnats and anything else except snowflakes and the smell of burning wood and whatnot. February is a small but often brutal AND beautiful month.

    Another New Englander here, and I gotta say I think les nailed it. October is not cold or hot, the days are typically warm and the nights brisk. The humidity is gone, no pollen and bugs are starting to die. The end of the month starts to feel festive, and football season is peaking. Nothing says fall in New England like fresh baked apple pies and Sunday night football.

    I don't think it even matters where you live in the US, most sane people agree sept-oct are the best months of the year.

    People who say July-August are still mentally 8 years old and probably use ketchup on everything they eat.

    I was at Market Basket Sunday evening, and I thought I was gonna leave again without any apple cider donuts because I couldn;t find them anywhere in the bakery section, like last time I looked for them. But right before the registers, they have the prepared foods heat lamps and warm section, for the rotisserie chickens and some pre-wrapped subs and whateverthefuck... AND THERE WERE THE WAXED BAGS OF APPLE CIDER DONUTS, UNDER THE HEATLAMP! I fell in love with the fucking place all over again.

    Perhaps my single fav seasonal food is buying apple cider donuts from any one of the local supermarkets (Roches Bros esp, but god help me Whole Foods little apple cider donuts are perfect too) and reheating them in the toaster oven, you take them out and they're all crisp and smell so good... Like, I'm not a pumpkin spice guy or any of that shit, I like my coffee black and my fried donuts old fashioned, but the apple cider donut is a goddamn gem of a thing.

    I saw something that claimed the most pumpkin spice coffee is consumed in Ohio. Meh

    Is the Apple cider donut a New England phenomena only? I don’t get it. My wife will wait for an hour this time of year at an Apple Orchard for them and so will a hundred others.

    To other members here MarketBasket is just an unusual regional name for a supermarket. The DeMoulas brothers story is epic. One of the brothers was President of the company and was being driven out by the other brother. Such was the love the employees had for the company and it’s President they walked out for weeks at no pay. Nothing on the shelves. Managers cutting meat and stocking shelves. Warehouse and drivers sat out. You never see that in retail anywhere. There was talk of a documentary movie. Fucking love that store.

      Crowe Diddly: Wegmans for produce, Market Basket for almost everything else, Roche Bros for holiday roasts, Star, Shaws, Stop&Shop all within a few miles, it's a supermarket heaven around here.

    Nope even down here in GA Apple cider doughnuts are a thing. We go apple picking in the N. GA mountains every year in October and always get some apple cider doughnuts to bring back with us.

    The first time we went apple picking I went begrudgingly, but as time has gone on it’s an event I look forward to more and more every year. We usually rent a cabin with some other families we’re good friends with and make a weekend of it. College football, s’mores around the fire pit for the kids, good beer, grilling out, cooler weather, maybe a cigar.

    To me it’s become way more about the kids and their enjoyment, and the actual apple picking is just an excuse to make the weekend happen.

    But back to the point of the thread, it’s one of the reasons October is indeed my favorite month of the year.

    You say "no mushrooms" like that's a good thing... Oh, sorry, I lived for a long time in Hawaii where mushrooms meant only one thing.
    I have to admit I always loved June. School was out and it seemed like forever before I'd have to go back.
    I am mentally 8 years old and I put ketchup on everything.
