I think I got the idea why people start to believe in miracles in winter more than during the other seasons….
Just imagine, cold and nasty November which makes you need additional warmth and mostly all the time you are thinking about fluffy cats by your side who could warm you up a bit, and delicious sweet cacao while watching the romantic movie wearing wooden socks under the blanket…
One day you wake up and notice something truly amazing through the window. The Kingdom of a Snow-white came to your place… no more grey and nasty streets – everything from the top of the trees to the ground covered with snow.
Such a vivid transformation of the season we could see only in winter… The spring comes slowly and then slightly turns into summer… you will not see immediate falling of red and yellow leaves in autumn – the nature will paint the trees with autumn colours step by step… but when winter comes it happens in a moment. Yesterday the lonely trees and streets had no colour except of grey & black tones and in the morning – everything turned into white fairy-tale. Isn’t it a miracle?
I’m so sorry for those who haven’t seen the snow in their lives or those who can’t see it every year…I wish all of you have real snowy winter at least once in 5 years because it is winter magic which everyone deserves to see.
I think this wonderful season transformation makes people dream bigger and empower them to believe in the miracle. This is such a coincidence that we are celebrating Christmas and the New Year during the winter. Christmas is a holiday which is one of the biggest miracles of Christian world that makes people believe in good things and become better human.
This year I was so lucky to meet the first snow in Ukrainian mountains – the Carpathian. I’ve spent 3 days in a small city of Slavsko in Lviv region. This place is just starts to develop as a touristic destination. Snow on the streets is wonderful but winter mountains are just breathtaking. I didn’t have enough time for snowboarding but make small hiking and doing photographs brought me unconditional harmony.
May be one of my perfect moments during this short trip was setting next to the fireplace at the hotel reception and watching the snow fall through huge french windows.
This post could be my contribution to the weekly photo challenge Magic because if you haven’t mention it yet – snow is a set of milliards or billions of tiny beautiful snowflakes and each of them is unique. Isn’t it a magic?
