       I don’t know about you, but when i hear the word WINTER what usually comes to mind is snow. However, in California it doesn’t snow, unless you live near or in the mountains. Although it doesn’t snow here in Rancho Cucamonga we still consider it the coldest season of the year, like in most  places. We may not be able to build snow mans and play in the snow, but there are many other fun things you can do that make up for not having snow.

     The first thing that a lot of people enjoy about  this wonderful season is that it is the perfect time of the year to wear warm and comfy clothes. For example you can wear sweaters, coats, mittens, scarves, and other warm clothes that would be weird to wear in summer. Many people also like candles, bonfires and sitting by the fireplace while eating cookies and drinking hot chocolate.

     Of course the main reason winter is so fun is because of the  all the different holidays people celebrate. Some of those are Christmas, Hanukkah,  Kwazaa, and New Years. Although winter doesn't officially start until December 21 people begin getting in the Holiday spirit from the first day of December. Some of the things most people love about the holidays are the decorations, the Christmas tree, and let's be honest everybody loves the presents. Other great things about this time of the year are the Christmas movies, songs, and of course cookies.

Happy Holidays!!!!
