Winters with snow: How was it in the past?

Snow used to cover entire towns, villages, fields, and forests, creating beautiful scenes. Children spent hours playing outdoors, building snowmen, playing in snow forts, or sliding down hills on sleds.

The sound of children’s laughter echoed through the air, while adults watched with warmth and nostalgia.

However, over the years the climate has changed. Winters became milder, and snow became a rare sight in many parts of the world. Many people remember the days when winters were cold and snowy, but those times are now just memories.

However, we should not lose hope because, with the New Year, we may also be surprised by heavy snow, and so the good memories will be renewed again, to the joy of many. Some will still grumble even then, because someone has to clean the snow, right?
