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.
Why must snow lose its magic for grown-ups?
