Happy First Day of Winter!! Whenever people ask me what my favorite season is, I truthfully have a hard time answering this question.. I like all the seasons for different reasons. By the end of each season, I also begin to hate that season because I'm always ready for the next one. Good thing they change every time otherwise it would be terrible if it were the same all year round.

There are a lot of things to like about winter. Here are some of my favorite things: Christmas, layers, beanies, scarves, gloves/mittens, fellowship, New Years, Christmas trees, sweatshirts, sweat pants, fuzzy socks.. This is my first "real winter." Back home winter consisted of rain and fog days. No snow. So I'm quite excited for the snow this winter.. although everyone looks at me like I'm crazy. Yes, I'm the crazy Californian living in Massachusetts. Continue on with life people. Of course, I'm sure once there are crazy storms and such, my tune will change, but for now, I'm excited. And no one can take that away from me.

Did you know that today is the shortest day of the year? I did not know this, but I overheard someone talking about it on the bus yesterday. I thought that was interesting. I did not know that it was the shortest day of the year. As the saying goes, "you learn something new everyday."

What are some of your favorite things about winter?
