🎵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.


Redditorstay__wildwanted 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

Giphy

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

Giphy

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!

People Describe The Real Reason They Cut Ties With Their Best Friend

Friendships are one the most important and intimate connections young people make. Friends are the people you are close to, who you grow up with, and who are always there for you when you need them.

A majority of people have best friends. That's the one friend who you trust and love above everyone else. The one who has proven he'll always be there for you and the one you're ready to drop everything for.

However, not all friendships are meant to last. Sometimes, one or both of you will change. Other times, you'll just drift apart. And sometimes, the friendship will end because of malicious actions. Redditors seem to have a lot of those stories!

All the while undergoing significant physical and emotional change.

So, it's natural that everyone looks back on several fond memories of being a teenager, along with things we try to forget, or wish we handled differently.

As a result, we can't help but wish we could go back and give advice to our younger selves.

Divorced People Confess What Actually Ruined Their Marriage

Marriages fail for many reasons.

The truth is that many of them are avoidable reasons.

I always wonder what is at the crux of the dissolution of a love story.

Or maybe it's all like Buffy and Angel.

One partner will never have access to a full soul.

Whitney was right... "I'd rather be alone than unhappy!"

People Describe How The Smallest Amount Of Internet Fame Went To Someone's Head

Thanks to the internet and social media, it's never been easier to become famous.

Indeed, some people have used social media to such an effect, that they are as or more well known than any number of movie stars.

But others might have put something on the internet just for fun, unaware that they had a viral sensation on their hands ("Charlie bit my finger" anyone?).

Some people soak in this unexpected fame for a moment or two, and then let it pass as they go on with their lives.

Others, however, might enjoy being unexpectedly famous, and will relish in their unexpected celebrity for the rest of their lives.

No matter how small an audience their internet fame reached.
