We humans tend to focus on the negative before the positive, and that goes for everything from waking up in the morning to the weather forecast. And when it snows, we often complain and want to be everywhere and anywhere else. But why not find joy in these white, wintery days? Scroll down to read more about 3 ways to have a fun snowy day.
