What’s to love about winter?

by Kristen Fescoe

It seems that when it comes to winter you are either: A. Constantly awaiting the next beautiful snowfall or B. In hibernation until the glorious spring arrives.

With all of our talk about winter ailments and running fevers, it’s easy to be tough on winter. But winter isn’t all bad!

When we asked on our Facebook page last week what our readers’ favorite thing about winter was, we got some great responses. There were several votes for:

  • No bugs
  • Less sweating
  • Christmas
  • When it’s over 🙂

But some of our winter lovers had some fun responses. Here are some of our favorites:

One of our readers, Jaclyn Kurtz, found much to love about winter, including: “No bugs, not sweating, beautiful snow, cozy clothes, fireplace, comfort food… I looooooove winter?.”

Another twins magazine fan, Kathryn O’Connor Scaccia, told us that she particularly loves: “Christmas. Snow. Sledding. Snowmen. Fires. and Movies.” Some of the very best parts of winter!

Twins magazine writer, Kristen, shared that her favorite part of winter is: “waiting for that first beautiful snowfall of the season. In New Jersey, it usually doesn’t come until February but it’s beautiful when it comes.”

Jennifer Houston Maxedon shared that her favorite part of winter is, “No bugs and bees when my kids play outside…. a nice fire crackling with a cozy blanket and book is nice too!”

Of course, not winter would be complete without some time on the courts. We were reminded by Jennifer Crasilli Lynch that her favorite part of winter is, “Watching my twin’s on the basketball court.”
