Top Ten Reasons Why Winter is Better Than Summer

Even though my birthday is during the summer (August 3rd), I still hate summer with a burning passion. The only good things about it are summer vacation and for my fellow summer babies, our birthdays. Other than that, summer can go jump off a cliff.
The Top Ten
1 The weather is nicer

Even though I don't like it when it's too freezing cold, I feel like the gloomy weather is still better than the sun being too hot in the summer. I really despise it when it's hot outside, going to the point where you can eventually get sunburn. The heat makes me feel uncomfortable for some reason.

Winter weather is a lot better than the hot, humid summer sunshine. I love seeing clouds, rain, and feeling the wind on my face. It's also pretty nice for those of you out there lucky enough to get snow every year.

2 No flies or mosquitoes

I know there are the occasional moths in the winter, but it's better than the dangerous and horrid parasites known as mosquitoes, along with flies constantly buzzing around the room and landing on other people's food, along with laying it's eggs.
Also I despise wasps and hornets, because they scare me and they can be dangerous when it comes to constantly stinging. Every time I am near these types of insects, I feel frightened and uncomfortable.

During the winter, you don't see any pesky flies or mosquitoes.

This is one of the few things I like about winter.

3 Frozen treats don't melt as fast as they do during the summer

This is one of the reasons why I eat a lot of popsicles and ice cream during the late fall and during the winter.

4 Shorter days

I like how it's nighttime early in the winter and even in the early morning, it's still dark. It helps me get to sleep quicker and longer.

For night owls like me, shorter days and longer nights are a blessing.

5 No Daylight Savings Time

On a similar note to number 4, most of winter is during Standard Time (except for March).

6 Getting to stay under blankets

I really like going to sleep whilst snuggling up in my bed asleep with my blankets, whilst it's winter. It makes it more easier for me to go to sleep during the winter.

Maybe this is related to my autism, but I love staying under all of my blankets during the winter and hate when I can't do that during the summer.

7 No back to school commercials

Back to school commercials are annoying and they don't really need to exist, other than just an attempt to make money. At least winter doesn't have these types of ads, unlike late summer, after the holidays.

I hate seeing back to school commercials during the summer. They make me so angry to the point I want to destroy my phone or the TV to get the ads to stop.

8 It's easier to warm up than to cool down

When it's very cold outside, all you have to do is turn on a heater, or put on some clothing and blankets to keep you warm. During the summer, it's pretty hard to cool down from the miserable heat outside, especially if there's a power outage going on.

As much as I like eating delicious icy treats in summer with the air conditioner being on to cool down, warming up during the winter feels more nicer, giving a cozy and warm vibe nearby the fire whilst having hot chocolate.

9 Dark, gloomy weather can improve mood for some people

I'm one of those people. Sunny days make me angry and tired, whereas I feel pretty happy when there are dark clouds up in the sky blocking out all the sun.

10 Winter Break

Winter break is another good thing about winter. I usually go on vacation to Florida for winter break.

Winter break is usually fun for me. I especially remember how awesome my winter break 2019 - 2020 was.
