18 Reasons To Love Winter

All of the seasons are special in their own ways, but there is something magical about winter. The frosty weather is so quiet and peaceful, and it is one of the most popular times of the year to visit family and friends.

Here are 18 reasons to love winter!

 

  1. Staying inside with a warm drink and a pair of fluffy socks.
  2. Holiday parties with family, friends and co-workers.
  3. The peaceful silence.
  4. The cold weather. Frost, snow and ice are all very peaceful and beautiful – even if they make getting to work a little hard!
  5. Curling up on the sofa with a great book.
  6. Ugly Christmas sweaters. This might just be me, though…
  7. Giving back to your loved ones.
  8. Being grateful for the best things in your life.
  9. Mistletoe (and maybe a New Year’s eve kiss).
  10. Snow angels and snowballs.
  11. New Year’s resolutions. Whether you love them or hate them, it is nice to think about lots of people making an effort to improve themselves.
  12. Work being cancelled because of snow.
  13. Sledging.
  14. Winter fashion. Sweaters, scarves, and mittens are seriously cosy.
  15. Travelling back to your hometown to see your family and friends.
  16. Visiting loved ones for the holidays.
  17. Everything about Christmas, from the food to seeing your family.
  18. The smell of crisp winter air.

20 Fun Fall Activities

I promise this is my last fall blog post. Maybe. Probably. I just love fall so much! Lame, I know.

One of the best things about fall is all the fun activities that come with it. The weather may be getting colder, but that is no reason to spend the next few months inside. There are lots of awesome (and cheap) things that you can do outside during fall!

Don’t worry – there are inside activities too. I love spending time inside on a cold, dark evening, especially if I have a mug of hot chocolate.

Here are 20 fun fall activities.

  1. Go for a walk through a forest or a wood as the leaves change color.
  2. Go apple picking.
  3. Go to a fall festival with someone you love.
  4. Visit a pumpkin patch.
  5. Carve pumpkins.
  6. Make something with pumpkin in it. (My personal favorites are pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie.)
  7. Bundle up warm and go to kick leaves in your local park.
  8. Go to a corn maze with your friends or family.
  9. Visit a spooky fairground.
  10. Fly a kite with your children (or nephews and nieces).
  11. Light some candles or the fire and watch a movie during a cold evening.
  12. Make toffee apples.
  13. Make homemade soup.
  14. Pick pinecones.
  15. Eat breakfast in bed (mostly because it is far too cold to eat it at the table).
  16. Make a scarecrow.
  17. Make mulled wine.
  18. Make warm apple cider.
  19. Go antiquing.
  20. Go to a haunted house.
