When does winter start in Canada? Pretty much as soon as summer ends. And winter often doesn’t end until May or June in much of the country. With such a long winter, why spend your time huddled inside getting cabin fever? Sure, I like bundling up with a mug of something warm and a good book as much as the next person, but getting outside is not only good for one’s health and wellbeing, it can also be a lot of fun.
I’ve recently gotten into snowshoeing in order to be able to get outside more often this winter and plan on taking at least one skiing lesson – just to try it out. Another (perhaps less active) way to enjoy and celebrate winter is to head out to one of the many winter festivals happening across the country. So, don’t just stay inside and watch the snowfall and wonder when spring will arrive – enjoy and celebrate winter in Canada!
