This is a post I did last year, and I just pulled it from the archives to repost it and was looking up the first day of winter this year. Do you know it’s the same day EVERY YEAR???? Somehow this blows my mind. I don’t know why. Maybe I need a refresher on how calendars work.
If you are in North America, like me, you probably don’t need any more winter. But for my friends in the southern hemisphere, maybe this will be a nice change. And the rest of us can come back to it in the middle of July when we are ready to fantasize about snow. (and if you want to fantasize about warm weather, here is a summer songs post I did last May when it felt like summer would never arrive)
First, you ready for the cutest snowball fight in the history of the world?
And speaking of adorable newlyweds (well, “newlyweds”. Anamika is complicated), there’s also Roja!
Both those songs are less actual winter, and more just going up to the mountains. Let’s see if I can think of a song that was filmed in winter in an actual temperate climate…..Oh! I have it!
Oh! Here’s another one! I know it doesn’t seem like winter based on how Katrina is dressed (or not dressed) but look! There’s snow at the end!
You know, the mountain songs feel more wintery than the actual winter songs! Maybe because they are more reliable? I mean, you know there will be snow on the mountain, so you can plan for it, but you can’t be sure what the weather will be like in the streets of London (or wherever). Like this all time classic:
If we are talking classics, probably only right to end on Amitabh. And one of Sudhir Ludhianvi’s last great poems.
