I really try to like each season equally, but that’s hard to do when there’s snow whipping around in the single-digit wind outside my window. I actually don’t mind the snow, especially now that I have a five-year-old who loves to build snowmen. What I find most disagreeable about winter is the piercing cold. Once the temperature drops to a certain level (usually when I can count the degrees on one frozen hand), I wisely avoid going outside unless I absolutely have to.

This month, to help celebrate the upcoming holiday, I’ll feature a prize every week here on What About Watermelon, including some (like today’s) designed to protect you from the frightful weather the season may bring.

For example, this handmade, crocheted Watermelon Hat ($15) will not only keep your head warm, but it will turn heads anywhere you go!

You can also step up your hot chocolate game with this cool Watermelon Tumbler ($15). Good for both hot and cold drinks, this double-walled mug will keep your drinks at the right temperature for hours.

    I love spending time with my family for the holidays and giving back to the community by volunteering and donating gifts.

  2. Angela Murphy says:

    I am definitely missing summertime and the watermelons from my garden. But I do love all the soups and stews that I don’t usually make in the summer. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Christina says:

    Most definitely my least favorite part of winter is the lack of watermelon! There is nothing better than finishing a run on a warm day and then devouring practically a whole delicious sweet refreshing watermelon. While winter does have some nice fruits, they don’t quite compare to watermelon. It’s the best! Now I can’t wait for spring and summer to arrive!

  4. Marsden says:

    My least favorite part of winter is I have to go to more stores to get good watermelon

  5. Marie says:

    I would have to say snow for both my favorite and least favorite. I love it because is beautiful when it is fresh and has the ability to make everything so quite and peaceful. We have to slow down for a minute. I do not like it when I have to drive in it.

  6. Randi Williams says:

    My favorite part of winter is playing in the snow with my kids and the holiday spirit.

  7. Darlene says:

    My least favorite part of winter is having to clean the car to go to work and driving in the storms, my favorite part was going sledding with my daughter.
