If he's been doing it for two or three years, his soles should have toughened up to the point where shoes become extraneous.

They are very entertaining. My sisters are like that, they'll wear short skirts and then complain about the cold. I cover myself up but the clothes I wear are usually quite thin but I don't feel the cold as much as other people, or at least, I don't let it bother me.

That's one thing I really like about winter. Being smug because I'm warm when everyone else is freezing.

Similar to Nem's coat, I love how my cloak is warmer than any parka, and pulls against me when the wind blows.

I love fires, hot tea, and snuggling up with my animals on freezing nights where there's wind and snow and God knows what else, and I know my horses are cosy and safe and warm in the barn. ^^

Aaaand...making my hefty mountain horses who like snow pull the sleigh...oooh! Redneck sledding as Shallan calls it. You hitch up a sled or round thingie plate yeah...to the ATV and drive as FAST AS POSSIBLE. It's brilliant.

...Riding in the snow in the mountains. Everything is quiet. Still. Silent. White. It's amazing.

Oh! I like winter in Queensland. Seriously, it's about 28ºC in August. You can tan.

I love the winter sky-all my favorite constellations are winter constellations. Taurus, Canis Major, Orion...which contain my favorite stars, Sirius and Betelgeuse. The air is colder and much more stable, so the stars shine with far more brilliance and clarity.

This year, Venus has been in the right spot so that with the sun setting earlier, I can see it while I'm walking around campus, which is a treat.

I love snowstorms-it's fun to watch a single snowflake as it comes into view and dances in the air until it reaches the ground.

I love Christmas lights and decorations-downtown Salt Lake is a wonderland around Christmastime.

I love watching the Nightcracker and Muppet Christmas Carol. I do that year-round, but people don't give me crap for it during the winter, lol.

Why yes I do, but people dont do that. lol Not smart and frost bites are no fun. Even with toughed up feet, he can still get frostbites if he's out too long. Wanna see what some of worst frost bites look like? Google them.

I've seen lots of teens wearing summer clothes out in -10 weather (or even, dare I say... -20?) walking to school. They learn their lessons from frostbites, but there's always some new idiots. Its all fads.

I like.. the fact that my winter is over for now. But if it were 6 months ago, Id have to pick when its raining hard. Rain on a corrugated iron roof, curled up in a comfy chair with a good book - cant be beat for lazy indoor people like me Smile .

Winter is my favourite time of year.
The excuse to stay in on a cold night.
Going on a long walk on a frosty day.
Coming back to hot chocolate and a roaring fire.
Curling up with a good book in a big wooly jumper.
Getting cuddles.
All winter food is comfort food.
Christmas and spending time with my family.

I do this. Sad

I don't do it as a fad, though....

That's because you're stupid, Tam.

I love the feeling your ears get when it's really cold outside so they go numb, and when you come inside where it's warm, but your ears are still cold. It's indescribable, but it's such a neat feeling.

I don't get get cold ears, I get hot ears.

Actually if I don't like to wear gloves because my hands get too hot so I'm constantly taking off and putting my gloves back on. I like the brisky feeling of winter. My mom and stepdad are the total opposite. They like to feel hot like an oven. I don't mind being cozy warm, but not so hot it feels like a summer heat wave.
