I have lived in the northeastern part of the country my entire life. Snowfall is inevitable. But there is something charming about the first snowfall of winter. When that happens I don’t think about shoveling or icy roads. Instead I like to think about how nice it looks outside. The first snowfall of winter brings out the little kid in me. The first snowfall usually happens before Christmas for us. Once it does my fiancé and I look out the window as the giant flakes strike the ground. Once it is accumulating on the ground we head outside and go for a walk in the snow. After a few minutes it is like you are ten years old again. We try to build a snowman or have a little snowball fight.
Snowfall in winter is especially beautiful at night. There is nothing like looking at snow falling around street lights or trees. It is one of the most amazing sights in nature. The first time snow falls in winter is an indicator that the holidays are right around the corner. Despite the cold weather it really gives you a warm feeling inside. After we enjoy the snow we head inside to watch our direct tv. We put in pajamas and make some hot chocolate and enjoy spending the evening together knowing that winter has arrived.
