My favourite thing to do in the winter is...well...Christmas! I love Christmas and everything about it. I love preparing the Christmas dinner and I love buying gifts for my family. Wrapping gifts and putting them under the Christmas tree is such a cool thing. Then, going to church on the Midnight Mass. My number one favourite thing is that my parents come to our home for Christmas. They live in Canada, and so I do not see them often, so I truly cherish spending time with them over Christmas. Also, I do like having Louis and our children home, it's the best.

I am not a very big fan of winter to be honest with you all. However, I think winter has its advantages and so I have to admit that I can accept winter as it is. The first thing I really like is the fact that there are fancy versions of hot chocolate, no the usual ones they have during the year. Another fun thing is that there are plenty of really lovely cakes and versions of cereals and other food related items. And believe me when I say this - I love my food. I am definitely a little 'chub'.

I love winter. Next to autumn, it is actually my favorite season. Unfortunately, I don’t live (and never have) where snow or winter weather was a big factor. So the usual winter pastimes like sledding, building snowmen, snowball fights and the like are out of the question.

So needless to say, my favorite winter activities are of the indoor variety. And anyone who know me even a little knows that my favorite winter (or any season) activity involves cooking. I love seasonal cooking, and the braises, stews, and soups, with their special winter seasonings are some of my favorite things to cook. Plus, there is the Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts to plan as well. Happy times!

My favorite thing to do in the winter is literally any outside activity! Where I live, the summers are unbearably hot and just the thought of doing something outside would make you drenched in sweat. But in our "winter" the temperature outside is wonderful and low humidity, so November-February is the opportune time to go on walks, play outside sports, go to any outside attractions. I spend a lot of time playing tennis, going to the zoo, and visiting the hiking trails close to me. It almost never snows here - we get like one random week of winter that usually occurs in January or February where the temperatures are cold and maybe like once every decade we will get light snow or ice with it. So, I've never been sledding or snow skiing or anything like that so maybe one winter I would hope to go somewhere and try those activities.

Winter is a hard season for me personally since I am mostly sick and struggle to keep body heat. I would tend to sleep in more. I like to read or listen to audiobooks or mostly I would cuddle up on the couch in front of the tv with some hot chocolate and play a Playstation game as I can keep my hands, with the remote underneath my cozy blanket. I try not to go out much during this time. Most of my time would be spent on cozy personal things such as books, games or movies/series. If I have to work then it would be from the comforts of my bed.
