I Love Winter. I Hate Winter.

Two things for you today:

First, last week, we announced our new Unlimited English Membership. We’ve had a great response and good feedback from our new members. Thank you for your support!

If you haven’t already checked it out, get more info at Unlimited English Membership.

Second, I want to talk about winter. Do you love it or do you hate it?

According to Ranker.com, the top 10 things people like best about winter are:

  1. Scenery (the appearance of nature when we look at it)
  2. Holidays
  3. Hot chocolate (a hot drink made with water or milk and chocolate)
  4. Fires
  5. Christmas
  6. Comfort food (food that makes you feel good, especially making you think of childhood or home cooking)
  7. String lights
  8. First snowfall of the year
  9. Blankets (thick covering to keep you warm, usually on your bed)
  10. Cuddling (holding someone in your arms to show affection)

The 10 worst things are:

  1. Black Ice (ice that is transparent (you can see through) that is usually on roads or other hard surfaces)
  2. Icy sidewalks (walkways beside the road)
  3. Wind Chill Factor (how cold you feel with the combination of the temperature and wind speed)
  4. Flu (short for “influenza,” a common disease that is caused by a virus (a very small living thing that can get inside of your body and cause illness) that makes you feel weak, feverish (with high body temperature), and experience body pains.
  5. Scraping/Defrosting car (to scrape: push a hard surface against something to remove dirt or ice; to defrost: to remove ice, usually with heat)
  6. Runny noses (when mucus (thick, slippery substance produced by your body) comes out of your nose)
  7. Heat bills
  8. Dry skin
  9. Driving
  10. Shoveling

Do you love or hate winter?

Me? I hated winters in Minnesota, but I love winter in Los Angeles.
