If you are sitting by the fireplace at home, drinking hot chocolate and reading our magazine you’ve already completed the first 3 points of “What to do in winter besides cuddling” list. Let’s confess, winter is the time when you want to snuggle more, snore more, sleep more, dream more and kiss more. Here’s what else winter is about.

  • Catching snowflakes on your tongue.

    And don’t say you’ve never done it in your life.

  • Toasting a marshmallow on a campfire.

    The moment when the marshmallow is hot and sticks your lips together, gives a pure joy to your heart.

  • Sledding from the tops of mountains.

    Be ready to get cold and wet!

  • Wearing two pair of socks on top of each other for warm and cozy feet.

    Deep in your heart you know you’ve done it.

  • Watching winter themed movies and definitely everyone’s favorite “Home Alone.”

    This is one of the movies that you used to  watch with your family when you were  6-7 years old, but after 20 years you watch it alone, because you feel awkward by still doing it.

  • Holding a hot cup of coffee/tea in cold and feel the joyful warmth in your hands.

    Those are things that, when even people don’t like and don’t drink during all other seasons, they definitely do for winter. A warm drink just makes you feel home.

  • Wearing loose pajamas, and stuffed animal slippers.

    You know the ones that have animal heads on the front and sometimes make squeaky sounds when you walk.

  • Adding red color to your closet.

    Don’t say you don’t like red, because it’s the color of Christmas, and joy, and laughs, and gifts, Santa, whatever you recall.

  • Spending more time with family and people you love.

    Winter can’t be any better than playing snowball or making dinner together.

  • Decorating the Christmas tree.

    Hitting Michaels, Walmart, or any department store for ornaments and house decorations is one of the rare times you don’t want to care how much you spend. Most importantly, your house is covered in Christmas lights and the Christmas tree is shining with its beautiful ornaments.

  • Mailing a letter to a family member or an old friend living far from you.

    Choose a nice looking stamp and a card to write on and feel like texting never existed. Then write deep from the heart.

  • Lying on the snow covered ground, staring at the skies and watching snowflakes falling on your face.

    Find a peaceful spot where the snow on the ground hasn’t been touched yet, lie and give yourself to the nature.

  • Lying on the snow covered ground and make an angel with arms and legs.

    This is one of the things that I think if you’ve never done it, you never had a childhood, (unless you were born in Hawaii and snow was something that just never happened).

  • Hitting on hot soups as your daily meal, instead of French fries or pizza.

    If you live with your grandma, you’re probably one of the lucky grandkids, because you’ll get to taste your grandma’s delicious homemade soups.

  • Baking cookies, and then more cookies.

    No regrets. This is the time of the year, when it’s more than OK to lose yourself and get some weight on fresh and warm homemade cookies. As I said, no regrets.

  • Making handmade home decorations.

    I know that we live in a century that anything you can possibly think of is out there for you to buy. But what can replace the valuable toys and decorations that are made by hands and love? They can also serve as very unique gifts for your loved ones.

  • Listening to holidays songs all winter long.

    Holidays such as Christmas and New Year feel people’s hearts with joy and happiness, and to make these holiday last longer means to have more joy and happiness. Songs will definitely help you with that.

  • Playing board games with family and friends.

    It feels like whatever you don’t manage to do during the whole year winter holidays make you do everything that you’ve missed in the past months. Board games are not an exception. They don’t recognize age, and they bring people closer together.

  • Thinking about life as magic.

    Think in terms of the whole Space we live in. We’re the only creatures so far known in this whole galaxy that can think and build things. No one else has a perfect planet like we have the mother Earth. Just think about, you have every possible resource to be alive and enjoy your life on it.

  • Building a snowman.

    Even though the famous cartoon character Olaf sings for life in summer, snowmen only last for winter. So get a nice looking carrot, few rocks for eyes and buttons and start building a snowman. P.S. don’t try to use M&M’s instead of little rocks. My brother literally believed they’ll last forever on a man that’s made out of snow and becomes wet by the time.

There is so much love and comfort in this season because,

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”~Edith Sitwell
