Appreciate the little things, like playing in the snow.
I think that December is the best month of the year. Here are a few reasons why I love December and this time …
Firstly, December has the best snow. The snow is perfectly fluffy, which makes it great for sledding and snowballs, and it adorns the entire neighborhood in beautiful blankets of white. It’s the golden age of winter.
There are a tonne of holidays to celebrate in the month of December. Hence the tag the holiday season. Winter solstice is the beginning of winter. It’s also the shortest day of the year. Because of the earth’s tilt, the Northern Hemisphere is as far away from the sun as it can be.The result: the shortest day of the year. In 2013, the winter solstice falls on December 21st.
Christmas is a special and holy time to celebrate the birth and life of Jesus Christ.
The celebration of the New Year is the oldest of all holidays. It was first observed in Ancient Babylon about 4,000 years ago.
And cookies… Baking cookies every other day is entirely acceptable, if not encouraged.
The fact. December is awesome!
So which month do you think is the best?
Humans appear “hairless,” not because we have less hair follicles, but because our hair is thinner, shorter, and more transparent than that of other mammals. The outermost layer of the hair is called the cuticle, and it is composed of dead, overlapping cells that form a hard protective coating, like shingles on a house. Caucasian hair (left) typically has ~5 layers in the cuticle whereas Asian hair (right) has up to 12, making it wider. Asian hair has a round fiber and is straight. Wavy and curly hair have oval or irregularly-shaped fibers. The shape of the hair follicle determines the shape of the fiber.
