I honestly never really noticed that there was a short day, long night, so I had to look this up. This occurs on my cousin's birthday, so...well...there's that.
Honestly, I have no favorite aspects of this time of year. I HATE winter, almost as much as I HATE summer. I don't like extreme heat or extreme cold. I just want to be comfortable. I like weather that is neutral. If I want to wear shorts, cool. If I want to wear pants, that's totally fine. I don't want to have to run my heat or air. I like having my windows and sliding door open.
Maybe I'm weird, I don't know. I just want snow one time a year....Christmas. After that, it can go away and not come back.
I know that this post seems kinda mailed in, but honestly, it's really not a huge deal to me. My bladder won't let me sleep any longer than normal, nor will the dogs. My life isn't really going to be impacted by this.
Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 15 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
The subject I got was "The shortest/darkest day of the year (in the northern hemisphere) is this month. There is a lot of commiserating about the negative aspects of the increased darkness and colder weather. What are some of your FAVORITE aspects of this time of year?" and it was submitted by Juicebox Confessions. Sorry girl...lol
I'm willing to bet some of my friends have something better for ya. You can find them below!
