Good Things About Winter

I decided to do a second post today concerning winter weather.  My previous posts on the outdoors have been popular so I decided to try another gallery post (slideshow at end of post).

I tend to view things in a negative light and desire to be more positive and optimistic.  Normally, I groan and complain about the coming winter.  Therefore, I have decided to write about all the good things that come with winter:

  • Sledding
  • Christmas music (at least for a while)
  • Chili more often
  • 40 degrees is t-shirt weather
  • Watching others slip and fall (at least it wasn’t you, this time)
  • Snow Days (for kids and government workers or people in the south)
  • No mosquitoes or flies
  • Super Bowl (and commercials)
  • Grilled cheese and tomato soup
  • Thanksgiving (fall season, but winter weather here)
  • Everything looks better after a fresh snow fall
  • Coffee all day and hot chocolate
  • Lights, Christmas trees, Hanukkah, and other brilliant decorations
  • Pumpkin soup
  • Snow ball fights
  • New Year and new hope
  • Egg nog
  • Surviving temperatures of 62 below 0° is something a person can brag about and people want to know more
  • More family gatherings
  • Pecan Pie

Please share your favorite things about winter.

I recently completed my PhD in Education (Curriculum and Instruction) at the University of Wyoming. I have published multiple articles in peer reviewed journals and have a book chapter coming early next year. I aim to explore issues of privilege and equity of education, especially as they pertain to STEM education.
