My First Snowfall: Winter Is “Snow” Much Fun

During my childhood, I was always excited in the winter not just because of climatic change, I used to pass the time by watching cartoons in cartoon network which is filled with snow all around. As I hail from a tropical climate where Snowfall is limited just to the dreams, that day when I first saw snowfall I forgot How, where and what I am? Just jumping with joy all around the place like a kid whose dream is fulfilled…

The first fall of snow is not only an event; it is a mere magical one.
You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up with a different persona and if this is not delight then where it could be?
