I know many people don't like winters. In the northeastern US, where I live, you can see expressions of pain and depression on many faces when temperatures drop and the snow season starts. Kids, being the energetic creatures that they are, don't mind it though. For them there's lots of fun to be had in snow and ice. They almost worship it, if nothing, for its supreme power to dictate school cancellations.
This picture of a recent snowfall reminds of my childhood, growing up in Tehran. We never had quite the bone-chilling temperatures that we sometimes experience in the northeast, nor did we have the volume of the powdery snow that we receive here, but we still had plenty of snow and it usually was of the wet variety, good for making great snow balls. Even there, the snow had the magical power to force school cancellations, and who could complain about that.
