It’s the crisp air, the leaves on the ground as you walk, the bare trees.
It’s the frost on the grass that melts just as the sun is rising, turning it into droplets of water that glisten in the light.
It’s the sound of birds singing in the morning a little later than usual.
It’s waking up in the morning while it’s still dark outside, and going home after work when the sun has already gone to bed.
It’s the condensation on car windows in the morning as people rush to melt the ice that appeared over night.
It’s the music you hear coming from people’s houses as they celebrate family traditions into the early hours of the morning.
It’s the decorations you get out of the attic that haven’t been seen since last year; the colourful lights, the wreath to go on the door and the candles to bring back to life.
Close your eyes. Breathe in deeply. What do you smell?
