Winter is coming...What do you do to welcome the season?
Winter is an interesting season that is split into two parts. Part 1: the feeling of togetherness that brings families closer and makes the festivities more exciting and intimate. Part 2: the utter bitterness of bone rattling cold, immense traffic jams caused by snow, and the longing for springtime to arrive. I made this pole because I suffer from this bi-polar symptom of the winter season. For living in the northeast, I tend to see an extra month-month and a half of winter depending on how severe the forecast is. You can see the many faces I reveal during this span of time. Enjoy.
Indulge in the season of gift giving and home cooked meals
Continue your daily routine occasionally partaking in holiday activities
Feel bright prior to January 1st feel dim after January 1st
Loathe the idea of holiday shopping and overall glee of strangers
Sit in your excessively hot house and contemplate in moving south
Rebel against the cold and make the best of what nature dishes out

I voted: Continue your daily routine occasionally partaking in holiday activities (Being a Muslim, we don't celebrate Christmas or New Year like it is done in some other countries but we do have family get-togethers as schools close from December 23rd to January 2nd approximately.1

I put indulge in the season of gift giving and family meals. Really I enjoy the family part. But with many grandchildren between us, gifts take up quite an importance.1

I meant to say that I've taken my skis to the ski shop for a tune up and checked out the skiing conditions. That's how I really welcome the season.1

I won't be doing much of anything this holiday season, since I can't leave the house. I may send a few Christmas cards to family and friends I would normally be seeing. Any holiday celebrations will be quiet ones at home.1
