Saying Goodbye to Winter?

     While I always look forward to summer I’m still never ready for winter to be over.  If you’ve been reading my blogs for awhile then you’ll know I have a difficult time transitioning out of one season and into another. There are so many things I love about each season that I hate to say goodbye to for half of a year. 

     Maybe I should celebrate the end of the winter season like students from Lake Superior State University.  They have a tradition of setting a snowman on fire to say goodbye to winter. I don’t think I’ll go that far but some sort of tradition just might help me accept when a season is over.  Got any good ideas?


Lake Superior State University students set snowman on fire

SAULT STE MARIE, Mich. — Students at Lake Superior State University in Michigan set a giant snowman on fire to say goodbye to winter.

The annual celebration was supposed to be earlier in the week on the first day of spring. It was postponed because of bad weather.

"It went a lot faster than I thought it was going to go, but I just wish the rest of the snow would go with it," said student Tina Barton.

According to the university, the tradition hails from Germany.
