Aloha Friday #66

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Today’s question is:

What’s your favorite thing about winter?

    I like wearing sweaters. Living in Iowa I have quite the collection of sweaters. But I am ready to be done with them now!

    OK, I read through the comments and I have to add one thing. There is only one good thing about winter to me. No bugs. Though I did find a spider in my laundry in the basement yesterday. Mostly the bugs are gone.

    I hate most everything about winter. My top choices for not liking winter would be the freezing cold.

    I love the crisp, clean air and the way my allergies are better. I also love hanging out with my family watching a DVD with the fireplace going, hot chocolate, FBBs (feel better blankets) all around and the lights out. If it weren’t for the big screen tv we could be The Waltons.

    my favorite thing about winter is probably the excuse to drink hot chocolate and apple cider! we live in West TX where there’s not really much winter. we do get an occasional dusting of snow on the mountains, so that’s pretty when it happens.

    Watching people slip and fall on the ice. Oh I am just kidding people!!!

    I love watching little kids trying to play in the snow but can’t because their mom has put so many layers of clothing on them they can barely move. hehe!

    UGH! I am NOT a winter person, coming from Alaska and all. But if I HAD to choose one thing, it would be snowboarding.

    A nice roaring fire with a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows!

    Big bulky sweaters that cover up big bulky guts!!

    NOT that I would know anything about big bulky guts. *ahem*

    It cools off. Seriously. I live in Florida and it is always so hot here, although we have had some really low temps here the past few days 25-30, so it has been freezing for us. For the most part, winter here is really nice cool weather, you can wear a thin jacket and be comfortable, so it is a break from the intense heat where you can’t take off enough clothes to get comfortable without getting arrested. lol

    My favorite thing about winter is being able to go outside and let the kids play. Being in AZ, winter is our good time of year since summer is too dang hot to play outside

    Usually it’s snow, but right now I’m going to have to say my favorite thing about winter is that spring follows it.

    my fav thing is Christmas

    Heatherlyn says:

    I like that it gets cold. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t want it to stay cold, but I enjoy the warm clothing that we can wear and the general change in the food we cook. I just like that change. It is something different. Without the change in the weather winter would have a completely different meaning for me.

    I love the snow and the twinkly Christmas lights!

    Winter for me is like autumn for everyone else but only part time. It is still my favorite season & I always wish for & fantasize about falling Snow.

    My favorite thing about winter is putting on comfy clothes, getting a fire going in the fireplace, cooking hearty meals and baking goodies…it is such a cozy feeling!

    The coming of the Chinese New Year (Monday) is always a fun time in the city. It get a bit cold, but the festivities are worth it ranging from dancing dragons to fireworks to chowing down on scrumptious dumplings.

    Lots of commments on this one! My favorite part of winter? The end! No, all kidding aside, it’s the holidays before the hard winter actually sets in. Or a fire in the fireplace, which is rare here in Houston. Doesn’t get cold enough usually.

    We had a winter wedding, so I like the winter – the snowy days, the warm fires. But our motive for a winter wedding was really the winter getaway to a warm destination…. like Hawaii.
    Have a great day!

    I love making snow cream with my girls, sledding in the snow, building snowmen and also sitting by the window with my girls drinking hot chocolate watching the snow. I hope my girls will remember these wonderful memories for years to come.

    Snow Days…. I still can be a kid because I work at a community college and once or twice a winter I get a snow day… LOL

    But, now… I’m ready for May…to start gardening and puttering in the yard.
