Poor winter, it gets no respect. Unless you’re an avid skiier or major hockey fan, it’s likely winter is your least favorite season. According to this study, only 7% of people prefer winter over any other season. Well, we’re here to change that and give winter the props it deserves. Below, six reasons why winter is the best season. (Take that, spring!)
1. Chunky sweaters
As the weather chills, we are more than happy to trade in our summery dresses and slinky tops for an oversized, snuggly sweater.
2. Cozy hats and scarves
As much as we love our chunky knit sweaters, we love our cozy chic hats and scarves just as much. An infinity scarf or pompom beanie give us all the winter feels we need.
3. Comfort food
Indulging in our favorite comfort foods like macaroni and cheese or spaghetti and meatballs somehow feels a whole lot better when the temperature drops.
4. Guilt-free binge watching
In warmer months, you can’t help but feel guilty for not getting outside and enjoying the fresh air. When it’s 20 degrees out, we’re all about nesting and have no qualms about snuggling up at home with our favorite Netflix marathon.
5. Good hair days
There’s nothing like the humidity of summer to ruin a good hair day. We’ll take the cool, crisp, dry winter weather any day of the week.
6. Wintry beverages
Pumpkin spice latte, hot apple cider, hot chocolate with marshmallows…need we say more?
