Why We Hate Canadian Winters

Why We Hate Canadian Winters

Winter is here and we couldn't be happier.

Who are we kidding? We dread the official start of the season. Even though things like skiing and skating are classically Canadian, we just can't seem to shake off how annoying shovelling, getting sick and freezing our butts off can be.

And with winter officially here on Dec. 21, we've rounded up some of the most hated things about Canadian winters. The slush, the ice and our cold noses. Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments below:

Winter Is Supposed To Be All About The Details
Like snowflakes that don't look alike.
And Trees Look Beautiful
Even without the green
And Touching Snow Gives You A Magical Sensation In Your Fingertips
It's beautiful.
But Sometimes In Our Beautiful Country, Winter Can Look Like This
Do you see my house?
And It Makes A Lot Of Us Feel Like This Happened
And While Shovelling Looks Easy
Yup, seems easy
It Makes Us Rage Like This
Why did I buy a house with a driveway?
And Often We Don't Have Balance On Ice
Oh, just saved myself
But More Often, We Fall
My face.
And Sometimes Our Feet Get Really Wet
Down with puddles
And Our Nose Is Always Running
And it's hard to always look good
And We're Always Freezing
From head to toe
And It's Unfortunate We Can't Work Like This Every Day
Even The Cops Have Trouble
And There's Snow, But Not Enough To Have Snow Days
A Lot Of Us Are Not Good At Winter Sports
And Why Are Our Shoes Always Full Of Salt?
People Hardly Make Eye Contact
Because they obviously can't see where they are going
And Someone We Know Is Always Getting Sick
We've been lied to
People May Tell Us To Stop Complaining, But ...
We'll see you in spring
