Lots of people outside wait all year for winter. It’s time to head down the snowy slopes or relax in the quiet, cold solitude of the suddenly empty roads and campsites. What’s more, more people love to gather around a fire pit in the yard or walk around town with comfortable coats, fuzzy hats, and steam bowls.
