🎵Walking in a winter wonderland...🎶

There are so many exquisite reasons to love Winter. The snow, the sky... Santa.

I feel like the world is separated into two camps, the Winter people and the Summer people and a compromise is never in reach.

I'm part of the Fall people—the truly perfect group.

Has anyone checked in on the Spring people?

But first, let's chat about Winter.


Redditor stay__wild wanted to discuss all the glory of winter, so they asked:

"People who like winter, why do you like it?"

Cold isn't awful, as long as you have a warm destination waiting.

The fight between cold and hot is eternal.

Die

"All insects f**king die. Or are at least nowhere to be seen." ~ Yisuscrais69

The Best

"No mosquitos." ~ lemick

"Nor alligators. Nor traitors. Winter is the best. Get to go outside and chop firewood without breaking a sweat. Get to start the wood stove before dawn and let a Yankee pot roast go on top in a dutch oven slow cooking all day long. I wouldn't trade it for anything." ~ badluckbrians

Indoors

"I get to pretend that my introverted lifestyle is only seasonal." ~ NeighratorPI

"I lived in San Diego for a while and having sunny weather every day was great. But I found I felt guilty sitting indoors reading. You feel this pressure to be out all the time. Eventually though, you manage to work it all out." ~ dudeARama2

The Dead

"I love those nights where there's a nice steady snow coming down, and it's dead quiet. It's very calming. Plus, it's hockey season." ~ ladies-pmme-nudespls

"Fun fact: because of their geometry, when clustered together snowflakes actually do make it quieter as they act as a natural aural insulator. If it ever seems quieter when it snows, that’s usually because it is!" ~ ReaverRogue

So Sunny

"Not sweaty, no sunburns, amazing sleep at night, able to enjoy warm showers after a cold day outside. Weather isn’t always soo sunny and up in your eyes." ~ Background_Bridge821

No bugs is always a plus.

And it does seem like light is less harsh in winter.

Alright... Alright...

"Because summer is bull with its hot, humid days, and muggy nights. There is only so naked I can get, and then I am still hot. Winter is wonderful and cool, if it is too cold you grab another blanket, the weight and warmth let's you know everything is going to be alright." ~ K13mm

Let me Zzzzz

"I deal better with cold than heat, and 20 hours of daylight up north wreaks absolute havoc with my sleep." ~ Leningradite

"Yes, I live in Sweden and in the middle of summer the sun really never goes down. I can’t freaking fall asleep when it’s so bright and when I finally do I wake up because it’s too damn hot." ~ Realmenbrowsememes

Tranquility...

"It’s so calm and pretty." ~ Alansar_Trignot

"Snowy nights are the best nights. One of my best memories from the last few years was Christmas Eve 2020. It snowed all night and at about midnight I opened an upstairs window (screen too) and sat for a while watching."

"It was completely quiet, cold, a little windy so sometimes a gust would blow snow into my room, the sky was a nice deep purple-ish color... I think about that night all the time now. I took a video to remember it but otherwise just sat and looked. Idk why it was so good but it was so good." ~ xofeatherxo

It's a curse...

"I run hot. Have done all my life. I'm happy in t-shirts and shorts until it gets below ~8°C. Heat knocks me out completely." ~ Neomorf03

"I'm the same. I've always just given off so much heat. My wife loves it because she can snuggle up to me get warm quickly. I asked my doctor about it, and he said thats just how some people are. It's a curse." ~ RyFromTheChi

Air...

"I love the fresh air. In summer I feel like I cannot breathe due to the sultry weather." ~ She_Abunai

Happy Winter people.

Embrace the cold.

It keeps the skin tight!

When you're working with kids, you never know what you're going to be dealing with on a daily basis. Are you going to have the delicate sweethearts, opening their hearts to learn?

Or are you going to be dealing with a sinister group of bee wranglers, who have suddenly set up a black market bee ring througout the school?

Yes. That's a real thing that happened.

Adulthood has been pretty nice, I have to admit. I quite like it. But it isn't always easy and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others.

It's so important to learn how to budget, for instance, because being an adult can get expensive. Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.

People shared their thoughts after Redditor FrequentPilot5243 asked the online community,

"What is an adult problem no one prepared you for?"
