25 Things I Love about Winter

I saw an article earlier in the winter that was titled, "50 Things to Love about Winter". I thought it was so great. I'm a summer girl through and through. The spring is too cold, the fall is too cold, and the winter is definitely too cold. But it really drives me crazy when all winter long I see and hear constantly about how much people hate winter and about how horrible it is.
As before mentioned, I'm not a winter lover, but I do love many things about winter. I decided that I wanted to do my own post on embracing the cold and enjoying the winter. Hopefully when I get cabin fever and succumb to the desolate winter depression, I can look back here and find some happiness until spring comes. So here are 25 things I love about winter.

25 Things to Love about Winter

1. No Spiders! No bugs! No mosquitos! If that isn't reason to celebrate, I don't know what is.
