25 Photographic Reasons Why Winter Is the Best Time of the Year

Despite being the coldest and gloomiest season, it’s a wonder how much joy winter can bring. From the holidays to the gifts — to the giant ice lizard blocking half of the street or the snowmen penguins guarding your door, winter sure is a special time. Don’t even get us started on sniping friends with snowballs like a modern-day Robin Hood.
