The Winter Season Challenge

The Winter Season Challenge

Even though Winter Solstice isn’t till December 21st, I still decided to do this meme today because I always see the starting of December as the start of the Winter season. So today’s post is of course about Winter, the season…not the bratty vampire.

Meme Instructions: Take a wintery picture and/or answer the following questions about the season. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments and share your picture in the Blog Memes Flickr Group.

  1. What is the December/Winter season like where you live? – I live in Florida, that means there is no snow…ever! Also, the temperatures stay around 70F aside from a few days where it may get close to freezing and then I take that opportunity to whine and complain about how hard my life is because it’s so cold in Florida at the moment.
  2. When you think of winter, what’s the first thing that pops into your head? – My visits to Canada. That’s pretty much how I’ve experienced winter and snow and extremely cold weather. Luckily I have lots of family there so I’ve seen all seasons and although I complain about the cold a lot when I’m there, Autumn and Winter are my two favorite seasons to go up north.
  3. Have you ever played any extreme winter sports? – I don’t know, does downhill skiing, cross country skiing and sledding count as extreme? I’ve done those three. I’ve also skated and fell on my ass often, but that’s a regular occurrence with or without skates and skis.
  4. What do you like most about this season? – I like the snow, probably because I don’t get to experience it that often. That’s why I like going up north during winter because that means I get to ski and make snowpeople and have snowball fights. I just feel like there are a bunch of fun activities I miss out every winter because I live in Florida. But I know that people that live in areas where it snows heavily are not very fond of it and tire of it quickly.
  5. Do you celebrate Christmas, Hannukkah, Kwanzaa or another holiday during this time of year? – I don’t actually celebrate any of those things. We’ve never had a Christmas tree in our home, but I have exchanged gifts with friends that do celebrate and sometimes been at their homes for Christmas, etc… A couple of years ago though my brother actually got married on Christmas day so since then we’ve just been having big parties on Christmas eve/day. That’s something we’ve all started to look forward to.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank those of you that still do my memes. Recently a few of you have said that you appreciate having something that prompts you to blog or write and that makes me happy. I read each and every single meme you guys share. Thanks so much for taking time to participate. <3 Please remember that you can participate in any of the memes/challenges at any time. You’ll find them all under my Blog Challenges category along with other memes and challenges I’ve done over the years.

  19. Hi Berry… I’m a Florida native but spent many years on the west coast, then returned to Florida last year. The day I arrived the heat and humidity was so overwhelming, I was ready to turn my car around and head back to the northwest. Nonetheless, the joys of snow at Christmas time quickly turns to frustration when you have to shovel your way from the front door to the street. heh.

    Btw, it did snow in Miami back in 1977, but I don’t think it has ever snowed in Orlando. go figure. *smiles*

  20. Did do it, even though one of my pics tried to thwart me :P

  21. Thank you all so much for taking the time to participate. I really appreciate it. This is my last meme for this year. It’s been so wonderful getting to know you guys.
