Why Winter Is The Best Season

Why Winter Is The Best Season

I know you're tired of the cold, but ,trust me, winter is still the best season by far.


I've always loved winter. Like, LOVED winter. Whenever we had an essay in elementary school about what season was your favorite, I always chose winter. To some, though, winter is too dreary, cold, and dark. Well, hello nay-sayers, here are four reasons why winter is unequivocally the best season.


First of all, have you ever seen anything more wonderful than snow gently falling? There's something so peaceful and other-worldly about it. Plus, each and every snowflake is unique. Not to mention all the fun there is too be had playing in it. I mean — sledding, snowboarding, skiing, tubing, snow angels, snow ball fights — the list goes on! Snow is made for fun! No other weather can claim that. And when does snow happen? Winter, of course.


Winter is the only season you get to really appreciate the heat seeping comfortably into your bones. That feeling, for me, is not only relaxing but also extremely nostalgic. It reminds me of going to a friends house after hours of sledding for a cup of hot chocolate. It reminds me of sitting by the fire at Christmas with my family surrounding me — all of us laughing. Winter is built to create these moments of satisfaction. So yeah, it's cold. But being able to get warm again is so worth it.

The Holidays

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukah, or Kwanzah, winter has it all for you. Well, not in the southern hemisphere, but at least in the northern hemisphere, winter is the perfect time to grab your family and hole up for a couple of days and just enjoy being around one another. Now, my family celebrates Christmas and I know that some of my best memories are associated with Christmas, and, especially with Christmas being in winter. For me there's nothing better than waking up Christmas morning and seeing a fresh blanket of snow on the ground sparkling like the Christmas lights hung around the railings of our stairs.


I don't know about everyone else but I really love the taste of peppermint and there's just something so refreshing about eating peppermint during winter. Also, peppermint is in just about every Starbucks' drink and candy on the shelf. Some people are all about the pumpkin spice latte during fall but I love to drink a peppermint mocha as I walk out of the building with the steam from the drink warming my face and then my body as I take a sip. So yeah, unpopular opinion, I know.

You probably still don't agree with me.

That's okay. I know winter gets a lot of heat — ironically — for being the worst season of the year. Still, as you spend time with your families and take a break from school I hope you take a second glance at winter and at least grow to realize, you know? It's really not that bad at all.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
