    I live in the South so it doesn’t get too cold here but I like the idea of snow, I just never get to see it. I like wearing cute scarfs, the holiday like Christmas and Valentine’s that you can snuggle with people you love. I like hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows.

    I dislike how the snow melts and makes ugly exhaust piles. I dislike seasonal depression, being too cold, dreariness, and freezing pipes!

  2. Rita Wray

    Five things I like are staying indoors and reading on a cold day, playing in the snow, I love Christmas, cooking winter meals, fires in the fireplace. Five things I dislike are the rain, driving in the rain, being too cold, my body hurting from the cold and not seeing the sun.

    I love Christmas, the weather, football season/playoffs & the short days! I honestly love everything about winter! 🙂

  7. Natalie

    I like cross country skiing, looking at the snow on the trees, seeing my dog play in the snow, Christmas and ice skating. I hate the freezing cold, driving in winter, keeping my car and house clean in the winter, icy sidewalks and crowded gyms.

  8. Anne

    Winter – Dislike – Cold, Ice, Snow, grey skies and lack of light
    Winter – Like – a big snowfall, staying inside and drinking tea, walking when it is calm and the crunch of snow, beauty of snowflakes, and bright sparkles of snow.
