75% responding hate everything about winter, yet we live here.
We love that first snow, just as we love a snowy Christmas morning. A briskly cold New Year's Eve is a lovely finishing touch on the Holiday Season.
From January 2nd until the first day of spring, you can keep winter.

I don't know about the hot toddy part (maybe hot cocoa instead), but my favorite part of winter is definitely the parts when I don't have to go out in it. A frozen nose, a buried car and messy roads? Ick. But watching flakes fall while sipping cocoa and staying toasty inside? Not a bad way to spend a day. :)

My favorite part of winter is curling up with a good book next to a crackling fire (in the fireplace) and watching the snow fall outside, while a purring cat sits on my lap.

Hate is such a strong word...
Don't forget that the first day of Winter is when the days start to get longer. There is always hope.

I love to curl up with a good book on a snowy day... unfortunately I am usually too busy shoveling the driveway! It's the slippery roads that I hate the most! And having to bundle up just to run to the store for a carton of milk! On the other hand, it is nice to see the days get longer, and to know that we're heading in the right direction... towards Spring!
