Words Alia Fawaz

What could be more relaxing than sitting on a blanket of whiteness and inhaling the fresh scent of crisp new snow? Winter’s frosty temperatures may chill our bones, but snow and ice lend a magical air to almost any landscape.  Winter can be as beautiful as it is cold, especially in much of the northern hemisphere when the Earth’s northern axis tilts away from the sun. Winter is a necessary part of our life cycles, which enables plants and animals to hibernate or migrate, while seeds will only germinate after spending the winter on the frigid ground. Winter is not just enchantingly beautiful but essential. With the warmer temperature brought on by climate change, we may risk losing this breathtaking frosty season in many parts of the Earth.

Winter is coming…
