The first day of winter — also known as the winter solstice — takes place Dec. 21, and you know what that means: If you haven't done so already, break out the biggest coat you have, because it's about to get seriously cold. The winter solstice marks that time of a year when the days are shorter, temperatures are dropping, and the snow is making your morning commute even tougher than usual. But don't panic: Though winter can be a bit of a downer sometimes, we have just the thing to cure your seasonal blues: some hilarious winter solstice memes.
One of the best ways to survive winter — besides very warm clothing, lots of blankets, and plenty of hot chocolate — is by maintaining a sense of humor. After all, for a few weeks, we're all in the same boat: basically just keeping ourselves buried in layers until spring finally arrives and we don't have to worry about slipping in ice or losing our gloves anymore. But there's no reason we can't share some laughs while we count down the days, is there?
