    Well, there hasn't been much winter down here this year, but I fight the winter blues by keeping the house bright. And, a cup of cocoa, never hurts either. :)

  2. Ashley Stephen says:

    I just embrace winter! I love fires and hot chocolate & decorating the house with rich cozy colors. It makes the space feel so homey!

  3. SCHMIDEM88 says:

    I always fight my winter blues with cozy blankets, hot tea, and getaway scented candles. Just broke out my coconut scented candle the other day!

  4. Leigh says:

    Cook a comforting hot meal and set the table with bright linens and fun dishes.

  5. Dulce says:

    How do you fight the winter blues? … I try to exercise regularly and engulf myself with holiday season decor and festivities.

  6. dstarrb says:

    Cooking soups, crocheting, reading. And, this winter, redecorating – and I'm ready for new throw pillows!

  7. jessica mcmanus says:

    Luckily since there happens to be many holidays during the winter blues I absolutely love to decorate according the particular holiday! It brings a cheerfulness and reminds me of my childhood home! In between holidays I love to have fragrence candles that I light in the later afternoon along with fresh flowers! And last but not least I pull out my warm whool throw along with my faux fur throw to physically warm up the winter blues:)

  8. Elizabeth B. says:

    Living in the south means I don't deal with winter blues for more than a few weeks. But warm blankets, boots, and hot coffee are very helpful for when the blues hit!

  9. Ron Miller says:

    Hot Chocolate trumps Winter Blues!

  10. heta G says:

    I cook good food since I have time indoors. That way we all are happy about winter
