The Winter Solstice Really Knows How To Put On a Show

This was love at first sight ❤

I felt compelled to put something down because of my never-ending love of winter. Winter has returned, and it is here to stay. It is that time of year again when the days are becoming shorter. We are all aware of the beautiful joys that this season provides us. Sitting by the fire with your family, a mug of scalding hot tea or coffee in your hand, closed doors and windowpanes to prevent the freezing chill, and, by all circumstances, the abundance of drapes covering us, while outside, the wind and rain rage ferociously to add to the weather drama. The winter solstice really knows how to put on a show.

This evening, the skies tremble with strange, intolerable thunder

After a lengthy interval since October, the winter rain surprised us on one of these days. Even though it was just four o’clock, it seemed as if the darkness had already fallen, robbing us of the last hour of the day. Rain always provides an inexplicable delight, a new colour to life, and a lot of freshness in the air.

There is something magical in the air that enchants you, and you are passionately enamoured with this winter evening that hides its colours in the darkness yet allows you to see through it if you truly want to.

It is just the season of warmth, cosiness, and delicious cuisine. The golden days are followed by frosty dusks, which eventually turn into darkness. In his remarks, I believe Philip Pullman has correctly pointed out how the winter delivers its genuine essence into your life.

We feel cold, but we don’t mind it, because we will not come to harm. And if we wrapped up against the cold, we wouldn’t feel other things, like the bright tingle of the stars, or the music of the aurora, or best of all the silky feeling of moonlight on our skin. It is worth being cold for that.

Philip Pullman

Whatever season you like, you must always allow winter to leave its imprint on your life each year. Winter is always interesting to learn about, since it gives you plenty of opportunities to ponder, contemplate, and replenish yourself. The winter solstice celebration, this season, really knows how to put on a show.
