Look, I admit it; winter is not my favorite time of year. Sure I can find things to do that make me happy (or at the very least, keep me content); but honestly, I could do without the shorter days, the bitter cold, and the icy, treacherous roads.
My other complaint: everyone is holed up indoors. I don't know what winter is like where you live, but here you rarely see anyone outside - and when you do, they have angry facial expressions and are dressed in dark, drab colors...grumbling, complaining. It can get so depressing!
Thank goodness for snowmen, hockey, skating, making snow angels, snowball fights, sledding, skiing and other fun winter things to do!
That's one of the things I love about Canadians so much - their winters are much worse than the ones here in PA, but they get out and ENJOY it! They're bundled up in cheerful bright colors and funky toques (that's Canadian for "hat" for my fellow American readers scratching their heads). It's so refreshing to see people outside during the wintertime...
smiling, laughing, playing!After all, if you're going to live in a cold, snowy climate, you might as well make the most of it! Otherwise it'd be a LONG and
So get out and play this winter!
Make the most of it!
...and even if you've always dreaded winter (like me!) you just may find yourself having fun instead of being one of the grumbling complainers! And if not, it'll make the season pass a little quicker!
Besides, spring will be here before you know it!
