Everyone has a favorite time of year and my favorite time of the year is winter. Winter is my favorite time of the year because it has delicious food, the coziness of it, and the weather is refreshing to us here in California because we have very hot weather.
The food makes winter my favorite time of the year because that’s when my mom makes soup, the moist turkey at Christmas time, and hot chocolate with marshmallows. My mom makes the best potato soup with bacon and cheese, which warms me up from the inside and makes me feel happy. The turkey is just so moist and when I eat it, it makes me feel good and I want to eat more. Hot chocolate warms me up from the inside out and sipping it by the fireplace with my family makes me feel supported and special. Without food in the winter, it wouldn’t be winter.
Winter makes me feel cozy and being cozy is a great feeling; cozying up with a blanket also makes me feel secure and not want to go anywhere because I feel so warm. Sitting by the fire with my family with a blanket wrapped around me is the best it can get, feeling supported. The cold outside isn’t that great but when I come inside and cuddle up with a blanket it’s the coziest thing I.
The weather makes winter – winter, because it makes me want to come inside and sit around on the couch with my dog, Millie. I sit with my dog and watch Christmas movies to get me in the spirit for the holidays. With the cold weather outside it might snow! When it snows in California it is a big deal to me because I love to throw snowballs at my sisters and cousins. Snow and rain makes me happy because I can play in it. Winter just wouldn’t be winter without the weather it brings.
