“Autumn is a season followed immediately by looking forward to spring”

"Autumn is a season followed immediately by looking forward to spring” is a seasonal saying that has been printed on many images. “Autumn is a season followed directly by four months of looking forward to spring” was written by American newspaper columnist Doug Larson (1926-2017) in his column in the Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette on October 15, 1990.

“Autumn is a season followed immediately by looking forward to spring” was printed in Larson’s column in the Green Bay (WI) Press-Gazette on March 23, 1992.


Wikipedia: Doug Larson
Doug Larson (February 10, 1926 to April 1, 2017) was a columnist and editor for the Door County Advocate (1953–1964) and wrote a daily column, “Doug’s Dugout,” for the Green Bay Press-Gazette (1964–1988), both Wisconsin-based newspapers. The column was originally syndicated through United Media under the title “Senator Soaper Says”; Larson took over authorship in 1980. Previously, it had been written by Bill Vaughn of the Kansas City Star. Larson was born in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.

“Autumn is a season followed immediately by waiting for Spring.”
It looks like our Fall was pretty short this year and we are marching quickly toward Winter. Would it be too much to ask that we just get snow on Christmas Eve?
