What I Love And Hate About Winter

With any season there are things that I love and things that I hate about it. I know for many on my social media timelines are moaning about Winter, they want it to be Summer. But there isn’t much I dislike about Winter, it is one of my favourite seasons, I know many would disagree ha ha! I have come up with a list of the things I love and hate about Winter, so see if you can relate to any of these.

I love the colder and fresher weather! For me breaking out my cosy jumpers, thick hoodies and my coat makes me happy. Just lots of layers ha ha! Autumnal/Winter fashion are pretty much my favourite clothes to shop for.


I love the Winter comfort food! Stews, casseroles, homemade soups and lots more roast dinners. The slow cooker definitely gets a lot more use during the Winter. When its cold outside and you come home to warm comfort food and the house smells yummy.

I love when Winter comes along as it means Christmas is also coming! I love Christmas and being festive. It means I get to spend time with family that I don’t always see a lot of during the year, enjoying yummy festive treats and lots of board games!

To be honest I can only think of two aspects of Winter I dislike, one being rain and the other is dark early mornings! In the UK we tend to get a fair bit of rain anyway, but during Winter we seem to get an extra amount and it annoys me especially if I have to go out that day! As I start work at 6am, it is so dark when I am walking to work and I hate that!

What do you love or hate about Winter? What is your favourite season? I’d love to hear in the comments.

  1. My favourite season is Autumn, I love that it’s chilly but bearable if you layer-up. As simple as it seems, I’m easily pleased by Winter comforts… most of them being centred around food 😁😅 I enjoy sitting with some hot green tea, a hearty soup and a book or cosy vlog to watch. Having cats around is also a preferred bonus. By the way…

    Merry Christmas! I hope 2020 brings you plenty of joyful moments, and that you achieve all you aim for in the new year.

  2. Sadly I don’t experience Winter here in Indonesia! I hope my experience of the cold and chilly early Spring in Korea counts, though 😁 Just like you, I liked the fresh weather and the comfort foods (I had some delicious and warm stews in Korea), but it caused my skin to itch and sometimes it hurt. But I pretty much liked the weather in the late Winter.. or early Spring 😀


  3. Interesting perspective! I’ve always wanted to live in a country that experiences winter, having never experienced it myself. But I do recognize that it’s not always pretty! As someone who doesn’t like it when it’s too dark outside (i.e. when a street lamp’s busted), I think that’s going to be a problem for me too. Oh well, nothing’s perfect!

  4. I miss the hours of sunshine and I’m not a fan of the cold. Other than that, sometimes how the snow falls or falls on the trees is such a sight to see. So beautiful!


  5. I am like you and I don’t actually mind winter! I would love to see some snow, even just a little bit 😂 but yeah I hate the rain and dark mornings, I hate walking to work in the dark in the morning xx

  6. I prefer summer so the cool weather and clothing isn’t for me, and I hate day light savings time! But overall, I love the festivities of winter

  7. My favorite season is the autumn, ABSOLUTELY LOVE the color of the trees. I used to hate winter and love summer, but as I got older this has swapped. Winter means colder and dryer (better for my eczema skin) and that means I sleep soundly at night.

  8. Totally agree with you! I love the crisp winter air and getting to bundle up in my sweaters, scarves and coats. And Christmas is the best! Honestly, I love winter so much more than summer. Dark days suck but I haven’t found this year too dreary.

  9. The air of winter is cold and fresh; crisp. I agree that I love breathing in lungfuls of it.
    Frost on the ground crunches when I walk on it. And nothing is prettier then frost on the windows in the morning. 🙂

  10. I literally live for summer! It’s interesting that you find so many people love summer, I don’t know of many people that prefer it to winter! I do love the ‘cosy’ aspect of winter and all the yummy food that is suddenly appropriate to eat again! But, being from such a cold part of the world, I really do live for the warm air in my lungs and the sunshine on heating my bones! 😁😂 x

  11. I only like those frosty days when it snows and everythings is covered in a white layer of fresh fluffy snow. That’s a beautiful time. But the short days, the cold, all the rain or when the snow turns muddy..no, winter is not my favorite.

  12. It is so so hard for me to pick a favourite season!! I LOVE going to the beach in summer and spending hours there chilling out and reading a book, but I also can’t think of anything better than snuggling up with a billion blankets in winter watching a movie. There’s so many good things about both ahhh
