There are many things that divide our nation – from our opinions on Brexit to whether it’s pronounced scon or sc-own. Another split in opinions is centred around which season is the best – Summer or Winter?
Here, we put the argument forward for Winter, with 7 reasons we will miss it when it’s over.
All the festivities
This includes all the festivities. Halloween, Bonfire night, Christmas, New Year!
When we think of winter we think of Christmas, but we also love dressing up for Halloween and toasting marshmallows on a bonfire.
This along with Christmas lasting a whole month these days, the huge New Year celebrations, there’s actually a lot going on in the cold winter months.
Wrapping up warm
Winter fashion is like no other – somehow, we can get away with wearing big knitted jumpers with terrible Christmas patterns on, just because it’s winter. Like we really needed any excuse though?
What’s better than being cosy and warm, wrapped up in plenty of layers?
Our stomachs are rumbling just thinking about all the lovely filling meals we eat throughout winter. Stew and dumplings, roast dinners and cottage pies are the perfect way to end a cold rainy day.
Obviously, you can eat these foods all year round, but they’re far more satisfying between October and February.
Cheese and red wine
Again, these can be consumed through Summer of course, but our love for barbecues takes over in August!
Cheese and red wine is a Christmas special that we often save ourselves for throughout the year. We will miss the cheese board and the mulled wine as Spring begins to kick in.
If working from home is an option, snow days aren’t really a big deal. But if you’re housebound because of the weather, snow days come as a welcomed day off work!
Nothing says winter like a day in the garden making snowmen and snow angels. Or you could just enjoy the pretty views from your bedroom window with a hot water bottle and a onesie…
As much as our social calendars are generally quite full throughout winter with all the celebrations and festivities, it also seems easier to hide away when we can’t be bothered with social events, unlike Summer.
Wanting to stay in and avoid bad weather is an accepted excuse to get out of plans we wish we hadn’t made! Win!
Many people hate shorter days because it is often still dark when we wake up for work.
But it’s also dark when we get home – what does that mean? More sleep! If the sun sets earlier, surely that means we can go to bed earlier?
