Writer's Block: It’s the first day of winter

What do you love about the wintertime?


athelind answered this so perfectly that I'm simply going to echo it here:

What do you love about the wintertime?

Some people talk about weather in terms of whether it's cold enough to need a sweater, a jacket, or a gigantic wool overcoat. Some will, in fact, assert that California "never gets cold enough" to justify the last item on the list.

I wait all year for it to get just cool enough to let me pull out my peacoat, and bundle up in layers.

I love winter clothing. It's cozy, it's comfortable, and it's a whole lot easer to approximate "dapper" (or at least "presentable") when you can mix and match a few layers of apparel and not have to strip down to a minimum of lightweight garments to stay comfortable. When it's cold, I can always put something more on; when it's hot, there's only so much you can take off before you have to pull out the flensing knives.

All my favorite clothes are warm clothes. I don't have any real "favorites" in summerwear; it's just a matter of "this will minimize my suffering".
