Dear Winter,

I apologize for being so mean the other day. I had no right.
Seeing is how I have been trying to be more positive lately, I just wanted to list the things that I DO enjoy about you.
#1: Hot cocoa:
This is the only time of the year that I can justify drinking this tasty treat. Any other time of the year just doesn't seem right.
#2: Christmas candy and all the other wonderful treats that seem to be never ending
#3: All the comfy clothes that help me cover up my chub that seems to appear after having too much of #2.
#4: Snow.
My favorite is when the snow falls at night with all the Christmas lights on all the houses and everything is so peaceful and quiet. If only you could keep it off of the roads...
#5: Snowboarding.
Would be impossible without #4! Now if I could just find the money to go...
#6: Christmas music.
How is it that we can listen to the same Cd's every year and never get sick of them?
#7: The gift of giving.
As I have gotten older, I get more excited to give my gifts than to get them.
#8: Festive Activities.
Christmas is just one day out of the year, but we celebrate it all month long! What other Holiday is really that special? Work Christmas parties, ice skating, caroling, going to see the lights, ugly sweater parties, etc, etc!
So I guess you really aren't so bad after all...
Love,
Janessa
