I love December.

The dark nights are awesome, I’ve always loved midwinter even as a young child. The cold suits me perfectly and I very rarely complain about it (unless I hurt because of it). Specifically the cold helps with my long term condition, I run hot, especially in my head, and the cold weather keeps me cool and less sick. The events are heart warming – such as lantern parades, Christmas choirs, markets set up just for December and shops and the city centre decorated. It’s not all Christian/Christmas iconography either – it’s winter, it’s December.

Finally I adore the snow. It’s my favourite weather of all! I wish I could sleigh again!
