In the words of John Steinbeck, “What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”, Winter is indeed a season of love. Without the whistling cold winds blowing in the months of winter, we feel inadequate and incomplete in experiencing the goodness of nature. It is the season when every occupation turns into something that we love so dearly. It is the season where we anxiously wait for the arrival of our near and dear ones. It is the season when we wish to pamper ourselves with a cuppa of hot cocoa and our favorite novel just in front of the fireplace, or we venture outdoors and throw ourselves into the soft, mushy snow and enjoy the bliss of the season. Winters gives us endless opportunities to discover ourselves while we appreciate the calm and comfortable atmosphere surrounding us.
