Summer is ending very soon. The bugs will not stop attacking me, and lemonade has lost it's flavor. Sure summer is great, but I've grown to love the snowy time of the year much more than the hot, sticky days of summer. I can't believe I'm saying this...but I miss winter! Here is why.
1. Snuggling up in warm blankets.
Especially on a cold snowy day. Ah, that feeling of satisfaction you get when even your feet are under the covers. So perfect.
2. Hot chocolate tastes much better.
Let's face it, who wants hot chocolate in the summer? I sure don't. It's like hot chocolate was made specifically for a cold winter's day. It warms you up with every sip.
3. Snow days.
This is more of a kid things, but sometimes working adults have an excuse to tell their jobs. Sometimes it snows so much that activities, work, and school get canceled. Sometimes, it's not always a bad thing. You get to stay in and snuggle up in a pile of blankets. We all win sometimes.
4. You have an excuse to stay inside.
Well, it snowed so much that I can't even get outside. I'm going back to bed.
5. Snow can be beautiful...
Look at how beautiful it is, especially how the sunlight reflects off the snow. It's calming. I've always found snow to be beautiful.
6. And I like watching it fall.
It's calming to me. I'm not sure why.
7. Christmas is in the winter!
Okay, who doesn't love Christmas? It's literally the best time of the year. Food, presents, and family time? It's great. (Except for the parents who are broke by the time it's over.)
8. More clothes to wear.
I love wearing sweaters, boots, and fashionalble coats. They make me feel all warm and fuzzy, and I love that feeling. I just love bundling up in clothes, I'm not sure why. I guess I have more to work with and to match up.
9. Winter break.
Winter. Break. Two glorious weeks of absolutely nothing. If you're lucky, you may get some days off of your job too.
10. It brings back good memories.
For me at least. Despite the bad blizzards we get and the 10 feet of snow, winter is alright.
See? Winter isn't so bad after all. In many ways, it can be a lot more satisfying than the dog-days of the summer months. So, goodbye, summer. You were much better this year. It's time for fall and winter to take your place.
