Snow isn't my favorite thing in the world but you wouldn't guess that when you're on the outside looking in at the photos I took yesterday afternoon. Today I want to share with you all the art of how to enjoy the snow even though you hate it.



So, here's the thing, snow at its basic nature sucks. Yes, I said it. Snow sucks. But one thing you can't deny is how beautiful it makes the world look when it's falling. It's the perfect atmosphere for someone like me who likes to takes pictures. You get a totally different sense of depth when you take pictures of a subject surrounded by falling snow. You get the same effect when you take pictures with smoke rising or when you see light beams reflecting off of dust.

  1. Embrace the Aesthetic: Winter wonderlands can make for some stunning photo ops. Take advantage of the picturesque scenery by snapping some photos of the snow-covered landscape. Share these on social media with captions that exude faux enthusiasm, accompanied by hashtags like #WinterWonderland and #SnowDay. This will give the impression that you are fully embracing the beauty of the season, even if you're gritting your teeth behind that forced smile.

  2. Dress the Part: One way to appear to be enjoying the snow is to dress the part. Bundle up in your coziest winter gear, complete with a stylish hat, scarf, and mittens. Not only will this help you stay warm, but it will also create the illusion that you're relishing every moment of the snowy weather.

  3. Engage in Snowy Activities: While you may not actually enjoy building snowmen or partaking in snowball fights, participating in these classic winter activities can give off the impression that you're making the most of the season. Invite friends or family to join in on the fun, and put on a convincing show of delight as you engage in these snow-centric pastimes.

  4. Indulge in Seasonal Treats: One of the best parts of winter is the delicious array of seasonal treats. Warm up with a mug of hot cocoa, savor a steaming bowl of soup, or treat yourself to some freshly baked cookies. Sharing snapshots of these indulgences on social media can reinforce the image that you're embracing the joys of wintertime.

  5. Focus on the Positives: Instead of dwelling on the aspects of snow that you dislike, try to focus on the positive aspects. Talk about the tranquility of a snow-covered landscape, the exhilaration of winter sports (whether you're actually a fan or not), and the cozy comfort of curling up by the fire on a snowy evening. By emphasizing these aspects, you can project an image of genuine enjoyment, even if it's just for show.

Conclusion:

While winter and snow may not be everyone's cup of tea, there are ways to feign enjoyment and make the most of the season. By embracing the aesthetic, dressing for the occasion, engaging in snowy activities, indulging in seasonal treats, and focusing on the positives, you can convincingly project an image of snowy contentment, even if you're secretly yearning for spring to arrive. So go ahead, put on that smile, snap some photos, and show the world just how much you're enjoying the snow – even if it's all just a clever facade.
