My First Winter Experience

By Ashish Singla


I still remember the time when I experienced the first snow in Canada and it was magical. I was born and brought up in New Delhi, India that’s why I never had a chance to experience snow in my life. I came to Toronto, Canada in August 2018 and I was definitely excited for the winters.

It was a bit warm at that time because it was the beginning of Fall but gradually by November the weather changed and I could feel the winter coming.

Toronto is really an amazing place to spend your time during the winters. I’ve had a chance of trying so many delicious warm foods. You can visit Downtown, Gerrard Street, Entertainment District, Distillery District, Kensington Market etc. to try some of the world’s best cuisines and drinks to warm up this winter.


One thing that I realized about the Canadian winter is that if you prepare yourselves by wearing right winter clothes and taking care of your skin then you are really good to go out to enjoy the weather which has a lot of amazing things to offer to you.


Some of the tips that I can give you to survive the winter is wearing warm jackets most probably parka jackets for your body, a good pair of gloves for your hands and don’t forget woolen socks and caps to keep your feet and head warm.

Also, you definitely need winter boots such as Timberland, Sorel etc. so that you don’t slip while walking on the snow.

When it comes to taking care of your skin and hair then you need a good moisturizer, lip balm, exfoliating face wash and oil to protect yourselves and to keep your skin healthy and glowing.


Also, I got a chance to do a lot of winter activities like tobogganing, skiing, ice skating etc. and also attended Aurora Winter Festival and Toronto Light Festival. So, what are you waiting for? Just go out of your homes and enjoy the amazing Canadian winter without any fear.
