There is something about Autumn that brings on thoughts of cuddling. I imagine back in the old days that the onset of colored leaves wasn’t just a pretty sight, but a warning to figure out who was going to be warming your bed with you throughout the cold months of winter. This could be a real issue, especially in the northern climates. Without out a reliable bed warmer the chill of winter could be unbearable.
Of course this is coupled with the onset of all the harvesting work. So there you are, hip deep in corn or wheat or maybe peas trying to flirt with that cute guy with the scythe in the next field over. Once the vegetables are all gathered and preserved there is the hunt.
Ah hunting – a time to walk alone in the woods while the animals are all reacting to their own instincts about the coming cold. What better time for young, single men and women to meet away from the gossips. Maybe take a little time admiring the fall colors and test the waters for compatibility. No one is going to notice if you take a little time out of procuring food for the winter to do a little snogging. With perhaps a chance to test how well you fit together – for sleeping.
None of this applies to the way we live today, but the leaves still remind us of the old cycles. So it’s no wonder that a quiet walk under the colored leaves is one of the most romantic scenes I can think of.
