The best things about winter…

Wearing coats, hats, scarves, gloves and boots. Being able to see your breath. Eating massive bowls of soups, stews and casseroles. Warming your fingertips in front of an open fire. Going sledging, and pretending that you’re 8 years old again. Waking up and looking out of the window to see a blanket of snow. Reading a book in bed with a hot drink when it’s freezing outside. Making a snowman and being terrified that it’s come alive when someone moves its head round in the night. Drinking mulled wine and sloe gin on a daily basis. I’ll complain when the weather gets too cold but right now, I am excited for winter – for my idealised childhood memory of winter.

  1. Lovely description… Though my favorite season is fall, I choose a lovely winter snowy day over blistering summer heat anytime. My favorite things about winter are light snowfalls that make everything shimmer, drinking hot beverages throughout the day and eating a whole lot, more comfortably.
