It’s freezing, I’m on the edge of catching my next cold, the streets are slippery and the footpaths are icy and every morning thousands of people have to worry if the tube will be cancelled because of ice on the tracks – I just love it.
Many people don’t understand what I love about winter, but having had literally six summers in a row makes me embrace the cold season with all its ups and downs.
Snow – is there anything more magical than snow?
You go to bed and the world is just normal – and when you wake up, it’s a totally different world outside, where everything is white and shiny, trees sparkle and snowflakes fall silently from the sky.
The world seems peaceful and quiet all of a sudden and I walk through town with a big smile on my face.
Some of my friends say I’m crazy, because I love winter.
They complain about being cold, the tube running late, the overground trains being cancelled and the wind being frosty.
I agree. All of that is annoying.
But when I see pictures like these, I’m just so grateful that I am able to witness magic like this instead of having to bear rain and wind and a humid sort of coldness which is much worse in my opinion.
What do you think of winter? Do you like it or do you hate cold temperatures as much as some of my friends?
Please share your thoughts – and if you’re still not sure what you should think about the snow, have a look at this:
I found this picture via Twitter. What a cute idea, don’t you think!?
