Growing up in Wisconsin, I knew all the seasons. And I agree, winter lasts forever there, but I love it!
We’re going to be in Wisconsin this Christmas for the first time since 2014. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long. I look forward to snowy landscapes, chilly air and everything the season has to bring, and here’s why.
Snowfall is so sparkly and beautiful. I remember the first snow, I would always want to take a walk. The snow falls so carefully sometimes and so fast and harsh at other times. That sparkle though!
You just don’t see natural things like that very often, things that glitter from within. Snow sparkle is one of my favorite things.
When it snows, everything seems lit up, even at night. The cover of the white creates a fresh blanket of light and even on the darkest of nights, I swear you can see more.
Have you ever stuck your head out and listened to the sound of snow? You might hear a snow plow, maybe the scrapping of a shovel, but you’ll never hear the snow. It’s so quiet. It’s so peaceful. I really miss it.
That’s right. Snow is cold and means it’s cold out, and for the most part, that it will be cold and snowy for a while. Why is this a reason I love it? Because cuddling. Snow is a reason to bundle up, wear fuzzy socks, and take extra baths. Yay!
And we cannot forget sledding! Big. steep snow covered hills, tubes and sleds, and all the warmest clothes you can find! Sledding is so fun, a great workout, and a the best way to celebrate the snow!
It’s not that everything about the snow is awesome. Snow can create packed down snow, and with the freezing temps, ice. Ice is no fun. I fall on ice. Then there’s the whole snow removal aspect.
I sympathize with people who hate snow removal. The last year we lived a winter in Wisconsin, I choose snow work over yard work, and it was no small task. But to tell you the truth, I’d do it again.
That’s right. Because I love the snow (see above.) Do you love the snow? Do you live where it snows? If there isn’t snow, do you miss it during the holidays?
