December and January are my favourite months of the year.
Not only because it is Christmas time and birthday time. Though those are two major reasons :)
I like them because these months means winter. And winter is my favourite season.
Winter means cold. And cold brings people closer. You find comfort in a friend's hug. Hands are held and stuffed in jacket pockets. You hold people tighter, closer.
Winter is about blankets. About foggy days and mist and walks. About watching the stars when it is cold and revelling in the beauty of a moon playing hide and seek in the clouds.
Coffee and hot chocolate and hot croissants make sense all the time.
Winter is about scarves and jackets and socks and sweaters and gloves and warmth.
And even on the dark lonely nights, when there is no one to snuggle with, winter is about finding company in yourself. About snuggling in with your favourite tv shows or your favourite books. About settling in with some Cohen, listening and thinking and writing. About snoozing the alarm five times every morning because under the sheets is too warm and comfy.
I love winter.
