Winter break is just around the corner and might have already arrived for some lucky students. Given the choice between summer and winter break, Iíd pick summer Ė but Iím just a warm weather kind of girl. I know there are plenty of you out there who opt for the cold weather and the fun it brings. Iíll even admit there are plenty of fun things to do in the ice and snow, even if itís a bit too icy for my tastes.

Skiing

Cross country or downhill, snow skiing is a great way to exercise and itís a sport that almost anyone can try. Expert skiers, of course, have many more options up on the mountain, but even the beginning skiers can snowplow down the bunny slope. Itís a fast ride and a great workout. Cross country skiing especially allows you to see nature at one of the most pure parts of the year, and the experience is truly beautiful.

Snowboarding

Iíve never tried, but those who have report back that snowboarding is much harder to learn than skiing, but itís much more fun when you finally get it figured out. I can see where that would be true. Snowboarders have their board strapped to their feet and they flip and fly all over the mountain. Snowboarding parks and jumps have sprung up in almost every major ski area, so there is fun for everyone when you take a trip to one of these resorts.

Ice Skating

To be a great ice skater you have to be strong and graceful. You also should look good in the little skirts the ice skaters wear, but thatís not a requirement. I love to watch ice skaters move on the ice with their jumps and twirls. I will sit for hours watching one of the televised competitions just because the grace and beauty of the skaters is so powerful to me. Unfortunately for me, Iíve been fooled once or twice by that ease of motion. The pros make it look so simple and pretty that Iíve actually strapped on a pair of skates Ė although I left my little skirt at home. Itís a good thing, too. That ice is cold on your rear end when you discover youíre not a graceful as you imagined yourself to be.

Playing in the Snow

If you live totally surrounded by it, you might feel that snow loses its appeal after a time, but if you make it a point to get out and play in the snow on a fairly regular basis, youíll be reminded of what makes it so much fun when youíre little. Try sledding down a nearby hill, build a snowman, make snow angels, build an igloo or snow fort and get as many of your friends to play with you as possible Ė they donít know what theyíre missing!

Shopping

It might be cold, but itís definitely the season for shopping. With giant sales before and after Christmas, this is the time to get out of the house and buy, buy, buy. Christmas money goes a long way to help in the spending department and with such amazing deals on things, you can make those dollars stretch a long way.

Unfortunately I've never had snow for Christmas but one year it did snow on Christmas day.

And I've been going skating with my friends on Thursdays for a couple weeks but before that I hadn't gone for five years so I keep falling and I have to wear my mother's skates which are about the worst skates you'll ever find.

I'd probably kill myself trying to ski/snowboard, but I love to go sledding

Yay! Shopping this weekend with my sister-in-law and husband!!! I stocked up on wrapping paper and ribbon yesterday so I'm all set! This years theme: Golden!

Yes I do "themed" wrapping, lol. Last year was ornaments. Everyone got a personal ornament tied onto their gift, and not just a cheapo one either, one I picked out especially for them! ^_^ I love shopping for and wrapping presents!

I wish the weather would make up its mind and snow already! We had a ton of it last week, but it all melted on Sunday because it went up to flipping 50 degrees farenheight. x.x

I can't do any of those things.

No snow to play in, no ice to skate on, no money for shopping...

And people wonder why I hate Christmas/Winter.

The snow is pretty much melted here because it rained over the past couple days and today. But we're supposed to get a bunch on Wednesday. Hopefully it'll be a white Christmas..

I don't really enjoy playing in the snow unless with friends, sometimes. I prefer shopping. But I'd rather have snow than rain.

Snow doesn't splash you when a car drives by.

(Like what happened to me today in the rain.) -.-

Here in NH, it really stinks if you hate winter, 'cause it snows. A lot. However, thanks to an ice storm, I've been off school since Friday. Also, I don't have school tomorrow, so I get winter break a bit early - except I miss Spirit Week...

The ONLY things I like about winter is the shopping, wrapping and giving of presents. Other than that I hate it!
