ONE COLD JANUARY AFTERNOON when I was a kid, my aunt called to ask if I would like to join her family for an evening picnic dinner in the woods.  Well…did you ever hear of anything so crazy?  I was thrilled!

 

Shortly after four, my uncle arrived and I piled into the car with my cousins for the ride to the Watchung Picnic area in Central New Jersey. When we arrived, a friend of my uncle had already started up an impressive bon fire and was busy stoking charcoals for grilled hamburgers. 

 

My aunt quickly poured hot chocolate into mugs and cuddled us all in blankets over our cozy hats and scarves.  Snow was beginning to fall, the moon was bright, and I thought it was the most wonderful night of my life.

 

Kids love things offbeat.  Different. Like Christmas in July.  Or this picnic.  So long as we were warm, we were happy.  We sang songs.  Ran around being silly. We ate heartily.  We giggled. And soon enough, we were back in the car, already falling asleep, ready for the ride home to bed. 

 

KEEPING WARM IS OFTEN THE KEY to how you enjoy the winter months, whether you are shoveling snow or walking the dog.  And keeping warm means, first and foremost, a good hat.  Did you know you can lose as much as 85 percent of your bodily heat through your head?  That’s why campers and mountain climbers pay so much attention to hats.  They are literally life-savers in the cold.

                                           The Vermont Experience

 

WHEN I GOT A LITTLE OLDER, the winter games got even more complicated.  Friends got involved in all kinds of winter sports.   But skiing in Vermont was surely the most popular.  Some kids went with their parents to exclusive resorts, equipped with their own skis and fashionable skiing outfits. 

 

Others, like me, joined the American Youth Hostels and got much the same experience (just a bit less luxurious) traveling to and from Vermont on buses and staying in dormitory studios owned or rented by AYH.  It was always terrific.

 

The AYH weekends were usually at Killington or Mount Snow.  Most of the youngsters rented skis and took advantage of AYH free skiing lessons from highly-skilled ski instructor-members.  We all wore the warmest clothes we could find, especially down-filled ski jackets and, again, those snuggily, cozy hats and scarves. 

   — I have to admit, there were always some kids who could hit the trails without a hat or scarf at all, but I never could understand how.  For them, however, it was a matter of fashion.  Sexiness.  Why cover those gorgeous blond tresses?  Instead, they bowed to foolishness.

 

IT NEVER MAKES SENSE TO BE COLD WHEN YOU CAN BE WARM.  THAT’S ESPECIALLY TRUE TODAY, WHEN HATS NOT ONLY LOOK AS GOOD AS A BARE HEAD, THEY USUALLY LOOK BETTER!  HERE ARE SOME GREAT EXAMPLES:
