Your lifestyle - your choice

Winter is a season that is special in many ways. It is a time of the year when the weather is cold and the days are shorter. Some people love winter because of the snow, which can be used to make snowmen, snowballs, and snow forts. Others enjoy winter because it is a time for holidays and spending time with family and friends. Winter is also a great time to enjoy warm drinks like hot cocoa and cozy up by the fire. The winter solstice marks the time when the sun passes directly over the equator. In the Northern Hemisphere, it falls around December 21, and in the Southern Hemisphere, it occurs around June 21.  It is the shortest day of the year and has been noted and celebrated by a wide variety of cultures around the world.
