I love winter. There. I said it. I honestly think winter is the best season. I’m a person who loves the colder months. I love snuggling down in bed with a million blankets and a hot chocolate. I’m the weirdo who loves the colder months. I’ve always joked that I’m cold-blooded, which is why I love autumn and winter so much.
So, here I am, trying to convince you that winter is the best season ever.
You get to layer all the clothes you want. Who wouldn’t love that? I don’t know about you, but I am oddly happy when I get in the biggest jumper I own. I feel so warm and safe and just snuggly. You can’t do that in summer! If you really felt like it, you could lay around in a onesie all day. I definitely wouldn’t judge you for it.
Rain and thunderstorms
I love the sound of rain on the roof. It is the best sound in the whole world. Nothing can soothe me quicker than an absolute downpour of rain. I also love thunderstorms. Once, I sat up for hours just watching one. It was beautiful.
I’m on a real hot chocolate kick at the moment. Everyone knows that nothing goes hand in hand quite like winter and hot chocolate. In fact, I think hot chocolate is what makes winter one of the best seasons ever. Everyone also knows that hot chocolate isn’t complete without marshmallows. You have to pile those on to make it a real hot chocolate. If you feel like hot chocolate is ‘too childish’ for you, then spike it with some alcohol.
I’m not usually a snuggly person, but I love snuggling during winter. It’s glorious…for the first half hour. After a half hour, I get too hot and feel like a pile of sweaty mush. I don’t know about you, but I don’t find that attractive.
Hot water bottles and extra blankets
In contrast, I love being able to add extra blankets and hot water bottles to my bed. It makes it a glorious, warm floaty cloud. There’s something beautiful about climbing into a warm bed when it’s absolutely freezing. You can’t do that in summer. Winter, on the other hand, is perfect for snuggling in bed. Seriously. Have I convinced you yet? Winter is the best season. Ever.
Pasta. Need I say more? You can eat all the pasta you want and then hide the ‘winter coat’ with your extra layers of clothes 😉 Total non-problem is solved.
Breakfast in bed becomes an everyday occurrence
I’m a student at university, so my schedule is pretty flexible. By that, I mean that I can eat breakfast in bed every day of the week if I wanted to do so. I study online (mostly), so I have all the time in the world. Lately, my breakfast has been bagels with cream cheese, sweet chili sauce, and chicken. It has been perfect. There’s nothing like running downstairs to make food and then taking it back into the perfectly warm and snuggly bed. It might only get better if there was someone to make breakfast for me 😉
