For those of us who live in Florida year-round, the changing of the colors of leaves is not something we see very much. There are states in the United States that truly experience all four seasons with a clear delineation between said seasons.

If it is your spouse, it can be especially difficult to watch the kids opening gifts without mom or dad there to witness it.
