      English Winter Impressions

Many people have a romantic idea of what winter in England is like: snow covered rolling hills, small robins chirping on a red post box, rosy-cheeked kids breathing huge clouds of steam running around sporting woolly hats and scarves and gloves, building a snowman complete with a carrot for a nose and lumps of coal for eyes and a smile.                                                                                                                                     Unfortunately winters in England aren’t quite like that. Mostly it doesn't snow that much anymore. However, lately it has become quite wintry in the northern parts of the country. After a snow storm in West Yorkshire last week it was possible to build a great snowman.
