“To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake it is necessary to stand in the cold.” (Aristotle)

It’s here.

Most people have been waiting quite the wait for it ,and finally it has graced us with it’s presence. Winter is here and all the winter-lovers will be able to relate.

First of all, winter is the coldest season of the year, in the northern hemisphere from December to February and in the southern hemisphere from June to August.

Before we can have this very serious discussion, wear your favorite hoodie and allow a cup of hot chocolate to bless you.

People favor winter for a plethora of reasons, and here are some of them:

1 . Chunky sweaters

As the weather chills, we are more than happy to trade in our summery dresses and slinky tops for an oversized, snuggly sweater. It is beyond comfortable.

2 . Comfort food

Indulging in our favorite comfort foods like macaroni and cheese or spaghetti and meatballs somehow feels a whole lot better when the temperature drops.

3 . Wintry beverages

Pumpkin spice latte, hot apple cider, hot chocolate with marshmallows…need we say more?

4 . Guilt-free binge watching

In warmer months, you can’t help but feel guilty for not going outside and enjoying the fresh air. When it’s 20 degrees out, we’re all about nesting and have no qualms about snuggling up at home with our beloved Netflix marathon.

5 . Reading Books

No plans for New Year’s Eve? No problem. Your book will help you bring in the new year.

Grab your favorite book , a blanket, sit beside your window, get your hot chocolate, and lose yourself within the pages.
