THIS is my favorite day of the year. The first day of SNOW! It is the day that I wake up to discover snow falling. On this day I feel exactly the same as I did as a kid. A sense of wonder takes over and a smile steals across my face. The fact that it seems to be sticking, however tentatively, makes it even better. Actually, that's part of the criteria for it being my FAVORITE day of the year--better than my birthday, better than Christmas, better than Halloween.
