First snow day [Update!]

The first snow came today, and it's been pretty cold outside, about - 8 degrees. It's unusually that this much snow falls in December. It's been snowing all day, so there's a thick layer of snow on the ground. I love the snow, it always makes me happy, everything is so bright, both in the day and night and the ground is sparkling like diamonds.

Snow also reminds me of my childhood, being outside and playing in the snow, making snow angels, building a snow man, having a snowball fight with my brother, I was so happy. We would also go to a big hill where we sled down with our snow sleds, it was a lot of fun. I would often lay in the snow looking up watching the snow fall, with a smile on my face dreaming away. I always wanted the snow to last because everything would have looked so sad if it melted. I always wrote in my diary when the snow came, I had to write down the happiness I was feeling, like I'm doing now.

I think it should be snow during December and Christmas because it makes the Christmas spirit even better. The snow will be laying there on Christmas and that's unusual, it only happens about every ten years or so. There's something powerful with snow, everyone lights up and becomes happy, especially the children and everyone who has their inner child still inside of them, like I have.

I went for a long walk today in the snow feeling like a child again, throwing snowballs at trees and signs, I was happy. I also fired some Fireworks outside, I always did that when I was younger, so it's kind of a tradition. Don't take the snow away because it's here to stay in every heart and soul today.
