Our TV mom may be cynical in her humour, but she sets a phenomenal example when it comes to keeping it high vibe in winter. Since the first season, Lorelai has consistently gotten really excited — never curmudgeonly — about the cold season. So, Stars Hollow is pure magic year round no matter what, but I still think Lorelai can still serve as a fine example for us in the Great White North when it comes to staying positive. Here’s what she’s taught me.
Snow can be magical, not awful
We’ve seen Lorelai cast a wistful gaze up at a snowflake-flecked sky while her co-star looks at her with a smile so many times through the years and it makes my heart sing. Lorelai loves snow. In episode eight of the first season, she asks Rory: “Do you know the best things in my life have happened when it snowed?” Rory says, “Yes, I do.” And then Lorelai lists all the super-feels-inducing things snow has brought her: her best birthday, first kiss, Rory’s first steps. Snow is the bringer of magical things!
