    ive done the winter christmas a couple of times before, but i got pretty bored cos you just end up staying couped up in the house all day. :sleep:i prefer summer christmas.

    its so easy to get out of bed on a warm xmas day. bbq lunch in the sun, or even on the beach. the whole neighbourhood ends up on the street playing with their new toys, AND, you can get really drunk and pass out in the nice warm sun. bliss.

    and then on boxing day you go to a summer music festival. winner.

    i really hate winter. (n)

    I feel that, its got to the point where around August I am usually pretty physically/emotionally run down after 5 months of weather under 16 degrees.

    but yeah spooning :lickface: and I guess winter is better for fashion, its hard to look smart in a tanktop. so yeah, big up winter !!:twitch:

    Agree with Apples about the things she likes. I even like the cold.

    But I hate grey skies and the lack of sun.

    My favourite month is April - snowboarding in Austria with the sun bouncing off the snow.

    I like the fresh cold air, (my Summer allergies seem to get worse every year), the Autumn winds, leaves blowing around.

    Storms, specially thunder and lightning.

    It's not just the dark and cold winter, but the whole change of season thing...

    I also like having the heating on.

    & I love Christmas in Sweden, with proper deep snow and crispy coldness! You go to a party, and put your beer out in the snow on the balcony.
    5 mins later...Icy cold suds!

    haha. threesome!!

    yeah, definitely a plus.

    i like winter. not as pretty as autumn, but still nice. i love all the build-up to Christmas, but i HATE the depressing couple of months after. not the weather, necessarily, just the flatness.

    there's nothing nicer than snuggling in front of the fire with the person of your choice and hot chocolate.
    and that made me sound like a soppy sad sack :gimp:

    BIG COATS & TIMBERLANDS!!! i like winter too!

    Only downside to winter is freezing half to death everytime you get out the bath and the salt on the roads does'nt do any good for footwear.

    A chav is this subculture of douchebag teenage boys. There purpose is to try and impress each other by being bigger dochebags than the all the other chavs.

    And...

    Be glad you dont live where i live, cause winters really suck here. -20 to -40 celcius all winter. (i hope that this is my last winter here, then off to somewhere new)

    you know the kids who hang round Forrest Chase? I assume they're still there. Them. I don't like the word cause I have a feeling I would have been labelled one myself as a 19 year old. anyways... thats another story
