Good riddance summer! The weather is cooling, leaves are turning color (well, actually they don’t really do that here in LA) and we’re all planning which obscure pop culture reference we can turn into a Halloween costume this year.*
*Do you think I’d look good as a Sharknado?
To commemorate one of our favorite seasons here around the Ranker office, we’re loving this list of The Best Things About Fall. Autumn leaves are currently ranked #1 in the overall list, so we’re feeling a little left out–but Crisp Air, Comfy Clothes and Halloween are not too far behind.
We were curious about how people’s favorite things about fall differed depending on where they live, so we sorted the votes by geographic region and took a look at the data.
Turns out that us weather-obsessed West Coasters voted for 1) The Weather, 2) Crisp Air and 3) Comfy Clothes before 4) Autumn Leaves. In case you’re wondering, this chart was made by looking at the Top 10 items that people from the west coast voted on the most from this list. The size of the pie slices represent the number of upvotes each item got, as compared to the others.
Our friends in South voted slightly differently. Looks like they’re all about 1) Autumn Leaves, 2) Crisp Air, 3) Halloween and 4) The Weather. Check out the breakdown of their Top 10:
Well, it looks like we are definitely in agreement about the weather! But while us West Coasters are looking forward to snuggling in our comfy clothes, it looks like people from the South would rather be watching pro football or partaking in one of fall’s main holidays.
What about our readers from the east coast? (This may surprise you.)
They are the ones with the pretty autumn leaves and they barely even care! Our voters from the east coast most love 1) Comfy Clothes, 2) Halloween, 3) Pumpkin Pie and 4) The Weather! They’re also, apparently, really into their desserts. Anyone from the east coast have a recipe for apple crumble they’d like to share with us? We’re serious. Tell us in the comments or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
