Snowfall

Of all things children, there’s nothing quite like SNOW… those dancing white crystals that change everything. Sidewalks and roads and open fields and hills become shadows of what they were and suddenly are the images of adventure. White blankets transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Snow brings laughter. Snow brings creativity. If you listen carefully, snow brings the most delightful sounds… sleds and tobaggons gliding over the snow, boots crunching new paths, snow angels getting their wings, giggles that echo over treetops. Snow brings a simplicity that children inherently recognize.

Everything stops. Everything stops for the snow. Snow has the power to shut down cities. Snow has the power to make home the place to be. Snow has the power to make hot cocoa the drink of the day.

White, fluffy, magic crystals falling from the sky. Little noses pressed against windows. Boots, hats, mittens.

Magic.

Why must snow lose its magic for grown-ups?

  1. It definitely still has its magic moments for me… I’m just not a fan of the slush part of it all! But the beauty of the white flakes dancing in the sky… just lovely! Now, bring on the hot cocoa!!

  2. Maybe this is why I am a Snowbaby Dept. 56 collector for years. I love this post and it has not lost it’s magic for me. Funny, when I started reading this post, I looked out my window and it looked like a snow globe. I immediately started smiling. I don’t ever get tired of the magic it brings.
