Love it or hate it, winter is a part of our planet’s annual trip around the sun, bringing cold weather and snow for many, and longer hours of darkness for most. But there are plenty of reasons to celebrate the season. Here are ten quotes that remind us about the joys of this time of year.

“Thank goodness for the first snow, it was a reminder—no matter how old you became and how much you’d seen, things could still be new if you were willing to believe they still mattered.”

“A snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship.”

“My old grandmother always used to say, Summer friends will melt away like summer snows, but winter friends are friends forever.”

“Brew me a cup for a winter’s night. For the wind howls loud and the furies fight; Spice it with love and stir it with care, And I’ll toast our bright eyes, my sweetheart fair.”

“Do you hear the snow against the window-panes, Kitty? How nice and soft it sounds! Just as if someone was kissing the window all over outside. I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.’”

—Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass
