When snow begins to fall in the early winter season, it feels like the holiday season has begun. It doesn't really matter if it is October or December, but once the snow begins to stick to the ground, you know the holiday season is right around the corner.
I grew up in rural Northern New York, so i'm used to snow. I like snow, I like winter. I love the nostalgic feeling the first snow fall invokes. The first snow fall of the year that sticks to the ground is a wonderful hint of the snow to come for the rest of the winter season.
