What's to Love About Winter

Updated on December 21, 2013
Source


I have always loved winter, snow and all. I find it to be one of the best seasons for various reasons. I like winter for the typical reasons that anyone would think and more.


The First Snowfall

What can I say, the first snow fall is so beautiful as it covers the earth and glistens in the moonlight, creating a natural glow in the sky so it is never completely dark.


Snow Days

Many people have an opportunity to play hooky, and children have the chance to make snow men and snow angels. I get to snuggle up with my hubby under a warm, comfortable blanket. It may be cold outside, but It's nice and toasty inside.


Fluffy Sweaters and Stylish Boots

In the winter, one usually doesn't have the worry of being self-conscious about wearing showy summer outfits. Instead, we get to rock cute sweaters, scarfs, and boots. Not to mention, the atmosphere creates a natural frizz control for those with frizzy hair.


Winter Foods and Beverages

Chili pumpkin pie, hot chocolate, etc.; Having these any other time, just does not feel the same.


Winter Sports

Skiing, sledding, ice-skating...fun, fun, fun


Most of all...No bees, wasps, or mosquitoes

I think this one is self-explanatory.


The Holiday Season

Pretty lights and decorations, many families getting together, people are reminded of good morals and the spirit of giving; aside from giving gifts to love ones, people are reminded to show acts of kindness to all as God gave His gift to us.



The Dark Side of Winter

Though there is a lot to love about winter, many still view the season as a dark, cold and lonely season; a season that is slow and somber and lacking life. It's true that some animals hibernate, most plant life is not seen and the days are shorter. For some, even the holiday season, with all its festivities, can be depressing because certain friends or loved ones are not around or money is tight...too tight for pricey gifts.

Yet, even through the mushiness of the snow, the lack of sunlight and frigid cold, there are still positives to be seen. There can be beauty in the dull, silent, bareness that this season can bring. When everything is still and quiet, it can be seen as a time of reflection; reflecting on moments of gratitude, life lessons, and new beginnings. When the life is temporarily gone, it can be a preparation for what is to come. After all, there would be no spring without winter; no replenishing without removal. And a tree without any leaves in the winter is very much still alive.

      I have to be honest: I choose summer over winter. I grew up in cold country; never could get warm. Now, I live in S. Fl. and just love the heat.

      Good Hub. I voted it UP.

      I fondly remember playing in the snow as a child. The sheer beauty of snow blanketing the earth is also beautiful. Driving on snowy and icy streets...not so much fun, but we no longer have that as a concern as we now live in the south. Enjoyed your hub. Voted up and beautiful.

      I believe that all seasons are meant to be enjoyed, but it is something about the snow that is always awesome to me.
