There is no arguing that winter is the best time of the year. It's not hot and sweaty any more and there is no feeling like sitting in the comfort of your home, with sweaters and blankets to keep you warm. It's even better if you have nothing to do but be lazy, and tuck yourself away with a good book and a cup of coffee.

Here are 16 reasons why winter is the best time of the year:

1. We get to eat yummy food like saag aur makki ke aate ki roti , gaajar ka  halwa, moong ki daal ka halwa and homemade tomato soup.
