Winter is (in my personal opinion), the best season ever. I love the beach like any other, but there is something about the winter season that gets me going.

1. Snow

This is pretty self-explanatory, but SNOW! I love the snow, I have so many wonderful memories of sledding down my Granny's hill during snowfalls. Building snowmen, making snow angels, having snowball fights, and then heading inside for a cup of hot chocolate always brings a smile to my face.

2. Calm

Something about winter calms me down, just the quietness of the season, all the animals are in hibernation, and everything is just silent.

3. Christmas

Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love to decorate the house, watch cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies, and spend time with my family.

4. New Years

New Year, new start. I try to make one possible resolution every year, something I know I can reach and work hard for.

5. Starting over

Winter for me, is almost like a reset button. Everything dies, and goes through the process of being dormant until Spring when they come back more beautiful than they were before. I think people do that sometimes too; I know I do.

Winter is my favorite time of year. It's the start of winter break for myself as a college student, and the time to get myself together after a long and stressful semester. It allows me to clear my mind, and to relax without the worry of deadlines and studying.
