I know a lot of people detest winter, but I quite like it! I love how cozy it is and Christmas is my favourite time of the year. Admittedly, come the end of February I’m ready for spring, but until then I love winter and all it has to offer. That being said, I thought I would share 8 things to do this winter:
Go for a drive and look at the Christmas lights
This is one of my favourite Christmas traditions. I love seeing all the different light displays in my city and this is something you can’t do any other time of the year!
Drink hot cocoa
Hot cocoa is definitively the best winter drink so I always like to indulge in a few come wintertime. There is nothing better than cozying up with a warm mug! Here are my three favourite recipes.
Build a snowman
This was one of my favourite winter activities as a kid and is one I think would be fun to do this year if we get enough snow!
Host a movie night
Staying in is super appealing on cold winter nights, so why not invite a few friends over for a movie night? You can take turns choosing what to watch and you get to stay warm!
I can’t skate, but it would be fun for those of you who can! My town has an outdoor rink in market square which always looks so festive this time of year!
Make mulled wine
Mulled wine is possibly the greatest invention ever. Sam and I made it for the first time last year and were immediately hooked. It tastes delicious and leaves the whole house smelling incredible!
Set goals for the new year
I like to take some time in the winter to reflect on the past year of my life and set goals for the year ahead. These can be big or small but I’m always left feeling refreshed and motivated after!
Get lost in a book
Since I’m more inclined to stay inside this time of year, catching up on my reading is one of my favourite past times. There is nothing better than getting lost in a book on a snowy Saturday!
