I think that takes time to learn to enjoy the cold. here we have four seasons, the differences are very large, so the heat, light, colors and sounds and the like.
Unfortunately, the boating season is short, but bright in the summer time is long, some time in mid-summer is quite bright throughout the night.
In winter, while the day is short 6-7 hours bright, like the pictures you see in the winter the sun does not rise up into the sky.
This winter has been unusually warm here 63 degrees north. now only + - 2 C is often at this time of -15 to -30C (-5 to - 22f) freeze.
