Have you ever wondered how amazingly beautiful winter can be? Well, I for one enjoy winter like ice cream on a hot summer day. Aside from frigid weather, winter can be a wonderful time. Just the thought of hot cocoa warms my heart like butter on a hot skillet. With all the the holidays in the winter, I don’t see why some people don’t like winter.

Winter is filled with excitement and fun. You can build snow tunnels and slide down hills, and maybe even ice skate on a pond. My favorite activity is snowboarding. It can be an exhilarating experience which you will never forget. Winter is full of surprises, I guarantee you, that is the tmth. When you are going down a hill at those speeds you will get “that feeling” You’ll know if it’s not for you, or it’s your destiny, your passion, or your life to snowboard.

I also adore hockey, and if put a little work into it you’ll be really good at it. My dad is phenomenal at hockey, he taught me how to play when I was S years old. My mom, on the other hand, doesn’t like hockey that much though. Every time I get the opportunity I always jump at the chance to go skating with dad. Like the Bruins did last year, my dream is to be a NHL Stanley Cup winner.

Winter is winter so don’t waste a single second of it, my great grand father used to say. Even though sharpening your skates can be a pain, if you power through it’s totally worth it. Winter is great, spring go out there and have some fun! I know waiting through summer, fall, and spring is hard, but if you are patient, you’ll be having fun in no time.
