My Favourite Season
I love Winter. There is something about watching the world change. Its like a fresh start, a chance for nature to have a break, to get things ready for the next year, to have a rest. I love the fact that sometimes when I get up in the morning its so dark and cold I can see my breath as I walk down the street. There is something refreshing about a cold winters morning. The freshness it brings to your face and the surroundings. A chance to breathe sharp clean air.
The wearing of thick comfortable clothes is also a plus. I like the summer but you never know whether its going to be hot or cold, or even raining. With Winter you know what your getting. Its going to be cold all the time. Great you can plan for that cant you?. Snow falling as well, when we get it, is a beautiful sight. We all moan about it but I bet you've had a snowball fight with your kids and built snowmen as well haven't you? See thought you had.
The other best bit of Winter? Christmas. My favourite time of the year. Getting a tree that's too big into the house, then decorating it, buying and wrapping presents and putting them under the tree. Hanging up decorations and stockings and waiting for the kids to wake up in the morning asking if he has been?. You cant beat it. That is what winter is all about.
You don't get all this at any other time of the year, some much changes, its like nature is deciding that she wants a clear out so as she can start again. Embrace it and enjoy it. Look at winter differently and you never know you may even start to enjoy those nights when you get in so cold that all you want to do is snuggle up and eat food that's no good for you. Winter is a wonderful time of year. I love it but have I convinced you now?
