As we enter into the fall, we find ourselves putting away our shorts and lightweight clothes for the season, and bringing our coats, hats and gloves out of storage.

For when fall approaches, it means winter is around the corner.

There's plenty not to like about winter, namely the freezing cold and the shorter days.

Conversely, winter also means the holiday season, and the chance to hit the slopes and ski or snowboard.

Making it understandable why winter is many people's favorite season.


Redditor i-pace_around was eager to hear why some people loved winter best of the four seasons, leaving them to ask:
