Snow is falling…

I spotted the first spitting of snow this morning. I know most of us complained about last year’s white spell because it lasted so long. Dates were cancelled, flights were grounded, people were stranded, women couldn’t wear high heels.. However, here are a few reasons why I can’t help feeling excited when I see snowflakes…

No matter who or where you are, you simply have to yell at somebody, anybody, to make sure they can see that IT’S SNOWING!

Everybody could do with a snow day off work / school.

Everything. slows. down.

It’s just so pretty. A blanket of snow can transform the ugliest of settings into a winter wonderland.

It’s the perfect excuse for all things hot… Hot bath, hot stew, hot chocolate, hot port…

I’ll never be too old to delight in being the first to crunch across virgin snow.

Childlike, creative qualities are key – think snowballs, snow angels, snowmen… Last winter, my sister’s boyfriend built a slide and an igloo and drove around on a quad. I know who I’ll be hanging out with this year…

Last December, I met a friend for one hot toddy. We ended up in Swifts, the local (shit) night club, tearing up the dance floor in our hiking boots and wellies. Best night ever!

Hollywood has convinced us that it ain’t really Christmas ’til it snows…                         Merry Christmas!

  1. O I wish we had snow, It is Saskatchewan Canada for pete sake and any speck of snow that has fallen so far has melted. It is a little bit disapointing to not have the magical image of a white Christmas.

  2. Love u, love ur writing but HATE the snow! I sound like a grumpy old man! It looks pretty and all that on tv but in reality it’s a pain in the arse (for me). I know I should be more positive etc etc and take delight in it coz it’s all christmassy and all but I am hoping the snow stays locked away this year and next! I say no to snow! xxx

  3. I grew up in Canada, now in NY, and love snow….wish we had more of it!
