winter is the best season

Here’s Why Winter is the Best Season of Them All

Probably most of you would say the summer is the best season ever because of the sun, the summer holiday, shorts and so on. But I’ve never been a huge fan of sweat and tiny clothes. When it’s cold you can add as much layers of clothes as you want, which doesn’t work the same way for hot weather. :)

I am not a big fan of cold weather either. In my hometown, we have quite cold winters – sometimes it can reach -15 degrees C, which is f-ing frost. So, not a big fan of going to school at 6 a.m. at -10 degrees or so, either. But there is one little thing that makes me bare all the frost and discomfort: THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS!!! And, by the way, there is only one month left until Christmas Eve: countdown initiated!

Christmas Time

I am a HUGE Christmas lover! I love everything about it: the carols, the food (oh, my God, the food!), the lights, the snow, the tree and so on. It’s true that there is a lot of marketing going on around Christmas (it’s not worse the Valentine’s), but I am not really into gifts. I mean, of course I am (free stuff that you wished for an entire year, hello!) but it is not all about presents.

In my family, during Christmas everyone is at home for a couple of weeks. We put the Christmas tree together, my Mum and my grand mother prepare Christmas dishes (I also help), my father is around the house – fixing things and helping us with the snow. The house smells amazing, all my friends are home for Christmas…winter is the best season

Nothing smells better that home for Christmas.

Oh, forgot to mention about the snow. Usually, 90% of the time we have snow during winter. Sometimes too much if you would ask me. I was talking to Liz a few days ago, because she e-mailed me about a pic with snow that  I have posted on instagram and she told me that they usually don’t have snow. And I realized the the cliche of snowy Christmas is not a dream come true for everyone. Because I grew up always having quite cold and snowy winters, I never realized that other people don’t get to experience this. So now I am grateful for having snow.

 

 

Do I have to mention Christmas carols? I mean, they are pure joy and inner peace. We have a local radio that plays carols for more than a month which is basically my dreams came true.

When Christmas goes away

The only thing that I don’t like about Christmas is that it goes away too fast. I wait for it an entire year, and it goes away in a blink of an eye. Christmas is probably the only period of the year when I am carefree and I don’t have to stress about anything.

How do you spend Christmas where you live? I would love to discover some other Christmas time related habits so please share them with me.

11 Tips & Tricks That Will Help You Stick to a New Year Resolution

  • Yay for the Christmas countdown! It really is the best time of the year! Your photos are simply stunning. :)

  • I love Christmas as well! I feel that the holiday season goes by way too fast. We just had Thanksgiving and we are now less than a month away from Christmas. Crazy! I live in TX, so snow is not something I get to see unless I travel up north. I will be going to Canada after Christmas to see some snow. I am excited!

    • It so weird for me to realise that there are people out there that don’t have snow during winter. ?

  • Staying in a country where it’s always hot, I love winters just for the cold! But, Christmas, yay!! :)

  • Courtney Patterson

    YES!! I love everything about this. I’m a total winter girl and absolutely can’t stand the hot months. Boob sweat? NO THANK YOU. Viva la snow!

    • Haha, I don’t have to deal with boob sweat, but I see what you’ve done there.

  • While I don’t think winter is the *best* season, I do love it for the reasons you mentioned. As I sit here I have my tree lit, my candles lit, and have this cozy warm feeling. It’s one of the best parts of this time of year – the holidays, snow falling, being a hermit…. oh! And Christmas music :)

    • The Christmas tree is already up? We usually do that on the Christmas Eve.
