Advent Calendar, Day 2

snow view
From winter 2014-15

Living in Finland means snow in the winter. In the south there’s not much of that anymore. It melts which is the saddest thing. Some people find snow cold and depressive but I love it. If there’s no snow, I won’t call it winter. This winter we already had some but it rained away. You can’t ski on it but it’s still white. It’s darker without it. At this moment there is some snow but it’s gets dark so soon so I haven’t had time to take new photos of it. It will probably melt again soon. The weather in Finland can be unpredictable. One day there’s rain and the next some sun.

Every Christmas there’s a question, will there be a white Christmas? If you want snow, it’s guaranteed you get that in the Northern Finland. The higher you get, the better there’s a lot of it. I won’t be home at Christmas so it doesn’t really matter if there’s snow or not. Snow is always welcome no matter where I’m going. It’s refreshing to see it during December though. Especially when it’s dark outside. Otherwise it would be grey and dull. I don’t understand those who complain about the cold. Have they never heard of jumpers and winter boots? That’s what makes it so unique to live in a climate with different seasons. There’s not a dull moment. Having snow is even better. Putting layers of clothes on is like wrapping presents. Love yourself and that also goes for covering yourself with clothes to keep warm. So let it snow. Kids love it so why not adults too.


Ps. This is my post-milestone-500-2xth post



I know you're there. Why do you linger in the shadows?
