    Winter Clothing

    Winter is a very beautiful season, but the weather is really cold. For me it is not new because I my home country winter season is the same. I'm used to the cold weather, but I don't like because it's too cold. Temperature can drop very low -40 with wind chill. It is important to dress very warmly. When I go outside I to bundle up. I have sweaters, thick pants, long jacket with hood, scarf, gloves and warm boots to keep my body warm, but I'm not very comfortable because I wear heavy clothes. Also I prepare my kids for winter bundle up because they spend a lot outside to play in the snow.

    Winter clothing

    You must wear from head to toes to keep warm.You need a parka when it's snowing must you wear many layers:you need winter scarf,gloves,parka,legging, and maybe you need ski mask and boots.
    We must wear all this things because the winter in Canada too cold and snowy.Some people can't manage this winter
    The weather in my country is different,it's better than Canada.
    The sun always is rising almost all year,there isn't snow. But now I'm comfortable and I am used to living in Canada.
                                            The Winter clothes

                    This first Winter in Canada for me and my kids ? ,before Winter  comes, I am prepared to bundle up this Winter,I was worried about my kids,but now I'm feeling better.My son wears snow suit,mitten,winter scarf,wool socks and boots.He likes the Winter here,so he tells me,he wants to build a snow man . I wear many things to get warm for ex,long under wear , thermal,parka,gloves and  coat.now I'm comfortable in the Winter.I can do any thing as before the Winter.Finally I liked the winter in Canada.

                                                                     winter clothes                                                                          
                    I think this winter colder than two years ago .In my home country I ignored the weather forecast  because all season there are warmer.Now, I'm following the weather forecast everyday  because  Canada is very cold . I don't like winter because I bundle up in many layers.I like to wear a coat, ski hat, gloves, winter scarf and snow boots.Sometimes, I wear thermal tight under my pants.When I wear everything I feel warmer but not comfortable .My husband is the opposite of me, he prefer a light clothes.He doesn't like wear ski hat or gloves just he put on a hood. He likes the winter and enjoy the snow with my kids.

    I  already have everything for my kids such as earmuffs,mittens, scarf, snow jacket, long under wear ,
    tight, snow pants and snow boots.My kids are happy for winter because they make a snow balls ,snow angels and snowmen.
                                                                  Winter clothes

    Most people in winter don't wear the right clothing. I think it  is better to wear under clothes so it
    keeps the body warm. also a good jacket, turtleneck, scarf, gloves and a winter hat. When the children go outside they should be bundle up. oh I almost forget to tell you to wear proper winter boots, so you don't slip and your feet are nice and warm.

    I like winter special December because we celebrate Christmas and also I enjoy putting up the decoration for Christmas and the lights outside of my house.
     Canada has many activities to do in winter for example I went to keelson park to slide in the little mountain with my family but we wear not property  bundle up.  It was fun I hope to do it again this
     Winter clothes.

    The winter has started. It is a cold and beautiful season when all snow-covered.
    In my home countri is the same winter season, only winter is longer, colder, with a lot of snow.
    I have experience about winter clothing. The winter clothing have to be warm, comfortable and
    not heavy. For winter season, we prepared warm coat or parka, knitted wool skarf, thin socks,
    mittens, warm jacket, boots. When we go on ski or to walk, we use other clothes, it is the hiking
    boots, ski hat, ski jacket and gloves. We must  use clothes in compliance with weather forecast,
    because outside my be windy, slippery, snow melting and snow-covered ice.

    Canadian Winter time

    I have spent five winters in Canada. My first winter was a beautiful one, I watched the snow fall, stayed home and enjoyed.

    I did not think about bundling up but now with three children I really think about it.

    When we go out with my kids to play on the snow, we must bundle up really well.

    Usually in winter time, we wear warm clothes, but it also depends on how cold-resistant you are, where you plan to go and how long you plan to be outside.


    Here are some tips:


    - Beware of clear and sunny days in winter time, this days are usually very cold.

    -If you live in Canada you MUST be familiar with the weather forecast from TV, radio, etc.

    - Make sure you have a good weather `` app`` in your mobile device ;)


    f you understand and learn to keep warm in Canadian winters you`ll enjoy them a lot more!! 


                                                                "Canada is Cold".

              In the winter it  is important to dress properly. It is good idea wear a toque on your head and winters scarf to protect your neck . If you want to keep warm, you can wear thermal underwear, gloves or mittens and boots. People try to scape the frozen weather by  having a hot coffee or tea. If you have to go outside make sure you bundle up like  mummy because Canada is cold!

    The winter clothing

    If compare to my home country winter in Canada is totaly different from my country . Anyway I have to live in the coolness country , so I 'll try to grow fond of a season that lasts nearly half the year . I must wear the right clothing in winter in Canada .
    Last weekend was - 4 but real feel like - 12 , I prepared to bundle up for sidewalk shopping at Toronto  China town. I wore a layer of a knit sweater under a 3/4 thick coat , I had thermal pan under my Jeans , a hood , a scarf , gloves , winter boots  ect.....
    After I dressed my warmly clothes I feel very comfortable That 's why I can stayed long  and enjoyed shopping  outside. Now I never worry about winter same as I just came to Canada at the first year , because I have learned more experience  with the cold weather.


    Winter is so cold than the people have to find ways to keep warm. The people wear warm coats, scarves for their necks, gloves for their hands, and boots on their feet. If we feel cold in the body, we have to wear a shirt under the blouse and over a coat to keep us warm temperature.
    If it rains we will have to wear a raincoat and an umbrella.
    Winter is the season when temperatures drop snow covers the ground frost covers windows hang from roofs .When the temperature is below zero, water freezes an ice forms on puddles ,ponds and lakes .Children have great fun breaking the ice in puddles on their way to shool.


    I don't like  winter because  I  came from Colombia, country with variedad climates, but I am already adapted to the low temperatures  in the Canada
    The winter ,I like to watch the snow convered ground because it is a gift of nature in these nórdic countries and I will be learning to apreciate this change in temperature

    for the winter

    The winter is coming, the weather is getting colder. Today, The high is -4, but It feels like -12 with the wind-chill. I have to go to school every morning, so I prepare to bundle up for riding a bicycle. I have a toque, snow boots, a thermal undershirt, down vest, a thick down jacket with a hood and so on. In a word, I have everything I need to wear. Over the few months or years I can dress enough warmly in the winter. Even so,I'm scared of Canada's winter. Last winter, I wore the thermal undershirt, the thick down jacket with a hood, the tuque, the gloves and the boots when I went to school. One day, it was -14, but the real feel was -22. Strong wind blew against my face and I felt it in my bones through my clothes, I felt my blood would have frozen. I know It isn't enough to have everything you need to wear in Canada's winter. My teacher told me that few of Canadians usually bike in the winter. Yes, but my house is so close our school, that I have no alternative way except biking. I think it is a good idea to buy a winter biking gear. I will buy my car in the next year. I feel my teacher always notice me, so it will make me to feel warmer in the cold winter.
