1. No sunburn

Since most of us spend winter hibernating indoors binging on Netflix and pizza, there's a good chance you haven't even seen the sun since Christmas. And, if you have ventured outdoors, you're probably all bundled up anyway.

2. No bugs

I can't even remember the last time I saw any sort of creepy crawler, be it a mosquito, a stink bug, or a cockroach. Why? Because they're all gone or dead! And who do we have to thank for that? Winter!

4. No seasonal allergies

If you have seasonal allergies, you know how painful it is to be outside. Flowers, trees, and summer breezes are nice...unless they turn you into a wheezing, snotty-nosed, watery-eyed mess. Winter is the one season where you can get some relief.

7. 7. Cuddling

Nobody wants to be shivering alone in the cold. So, what's the best way to keep warm? By cuddling, of course! Grab your significant other, your friend, your pet, your laptop...or anything else near and dear to you that generates heat and get cozy!

8. Holidays
