Sorry, only one pick! 
This time of year in our neck of the woods it's hot.  How hot?  It's damn hot!  (Thank you Robin.)  And thus this is the time of year I start counting the days down until fall arrives. 
But, hey, instead of bitching about the weather, let's talk about your favorite ONE month of the year.  What be it?

Wow- OK, so I can only post 10  options.  Brilliant.  So I have to break the year down into 10 piece.  Pick one!

    October.  The autumn is my favourite season followed closely by the spring.  October is changing leaves and crisp, clean air.  Oh, and HALLOWEEN!!!

    Early fall when you can still drink a beer outside, and the sun is still shining.

    Mid Sept to mid Oct...It’s far enough into the school year to where everyone’s settled into their routine, but early enough before the stress of the holidays. Late October begins a very sad time for me. Also, the weather is finally bearable and I love my evenings spent looking at the stars. So peaceful and healing.

    April and May are nice because everything is coming to life and blooming, especially the gorgeous, scented Jacaranda trees with their purple blooms that we get yearly. 

    But October to late November, even early December, just perfect here. The cooler weather and bundling up, the overall mood, spectacular sunrises, the scent of wood burning, the foods of the season...all so comforting.

    Yup, this. Also, October is the month that I bust out my hoodies. Hoodies are the best!

    My favorite month is February, especially a goof rainy February.  I LOVE the rain!

    June for the weather. Perfect weather month here in Philly area. Just gets hot, but not blazing July hot. 

    Love March for college basketball and almost picked that.

    36 Celsius I assume?  That's a bit on the warm side for me.  I used to love summer but now days the heat leaves me feeling like a wilted head of lettuce!   Enjoys this good time for you!

    When I was a kid, we went back to Lebanon PA to visit my grandma some summers- always in July or August.  It was always sweltering hot and humid, but I loved it when a storm would break and bring some relief.  I loved those visits to PA- seeing my Amish grandma, birch beer, fireflies, thunderstorms, beautiful old buildings, and green everywhere instead of this ubiquitous 5 months of brown her out west.  I was born here and am tied to this area but I could easily see living in PA under other circumstances.

    Yes July and August can be rough. We had a two week stretch before this week that was absolutely brutal with heat and humidity.  Overall though we have a nice weather pattern here. we don't get too extreme but we get all 4 seasons in all their good and bad.  spring and fall are glorious here other than allergies.

    Ah, yes, 4 season!  I live in western NY for two years and loved the distinct season!

    Oh man, yeah!  Grandma used to make a killer shoofly pie.  And her wilted lettuce- sounds weird but it was great!

    This is tough because I too like to see the buds on trees when blooming again, I also love the cooler temps of the early fall.  I was born in MA, cold weather beyond belief, and now live in NJ, God awful heat beyond belief at times. Currently experiencing a summer storm with thunder and lightening and downpours, for hours now. 

    I will let my man Pete say it, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a7SliN-82P0, I like every minute of the day. 

    If I had to pick one, it would be fall.  But they all have their pros and cons.

    I am a summer girl all the way. I love the sun. But my birthday is October so I also love that time of year as well. Since I teach college, my summer work schedule is way lighter. Another plus for the summer vote.

    When i was younger, definitely the summertime. Now, more towards fall. In reality anything but the winter/cold weather.
