Photos: The beauty of Canada during the winter

As much as Canadians love to complain about the cold during the winter and try our hardest to escape somewhere warm during the darkest season, the truth is that we secretly love it. It is part of who we are.

The photos below, one from each territory and province, show the beauty of the nation when it is blanketed in white. Soon enough, the spring will come with the return of birdsong and the scent of flowers and we get to rediscover the beauty of Canada in another season. We will enjoy it while it lasts, but remember that winter will be back again and will greet it happily when it arrives.

The daily deliveries of the dabba wallas in India is nothing short of a miracle. They transport hot meals from people’s homes to their workplaces then return the tiffen containers before the day is done. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!

The French don’t call it the English Channel
