16 Videos of Little Kids and Animals Being Cute in the Snow Because It's Cold and You Deserve This

Winter is no longer coming. Winter is here, and no amount of hearty chuckles at Game of Thrones jokes will be able to keep you warm against this kind of chill. Odds are, if you live in a place that experiences actual winter, you've already had some snow this year. And if you're anywhere near where I live right now, you maybe also woke up to several inches of snow and pretended to be Elsa to ease the pain of trudging out into the storm and freeing your poor car from its clutches. Look, it's cold and we're all stressed, and the only guaranteed fix-it (besides boozy hot cocoa, but it might a be a little early in the day) is a slew of videos of kids and animals being cute in the snow. Ya know, to remind us that snow isn't entirely evil.

I'm pretty sure there aren't any videos of kids or animals in snow that aren't inherently adorable, so you can't really go wrong by YouTube searching it yourself, but when you're so busy chattering your teeth and complaining about the temperature of the office, who has the time? Fret not, fellow winter warriors. We have compiled come ice cold internet cuteness that will get you through the day:
