The drifting clouds shimmer with snowflakes as winter is upon the world. The sun makes the white sparkle. The kids cheer outside on the skate rinks and the parents enjoy their hot coffees as they watch. The air is brisk and when you breathe out, the sight of your own breathe is evident. The snowmen stand strong protecting the snow angels behind them. There are foot-prints left in the thick layer of snow that will stay till the following morning. The hot chocolate warms the cold hands as they enter their homes for the evening. The New Year is coming.
