🎵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 Share The Biggest Bachelor Party Or Wedding Day Disasters They've Ever Seen

Weddings, and the festivities leading up to them, are a major milestone in many people's lives. The sheer stress and effort that go into planning a wedding are usually enough to make people realize they should try hard not to screw things up.

Sometimes that isn't the case though, and when things go wrong they often go very, very wrong.

Our parents should be able––and willing––to protect us and to fight for our best interests. But that's not always the case, and the unlucky ones can spend years seeking mental health counseling to figure out what went wrong.

Our parents are human and they have the ability to disappoint us and devastate us like anyone else. It just hurts a little more, as we were reminded once Redditor banbidoe asked the online community,

"What's the worst thing your parents ever said to you?"

Cashiers Break Down Which Items Cause Them To Silently Judge Customers

It's human nature to have various opinions about the people we come across.

What sets us apart from heathens is that we keep our judgments to ourselves–especially when they are not of the flattering variety.

The people who probably interact with strangers the most are those who work in any type of service industry, and they should be good about keeping their mouths shut if they don't have anything nice to say about a customer or of their purchases.

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.
