Note that "winter" itself is variable in what it does across the world, but this tag is not as malleable. In southern countries "winter" consists mostly actually worst portions of autumn/spring weather rather than any real winter (such as barely even gaining frost). This tag is only for "proper" winters with snow and things freezing solid.
Seasonal themes: Vernal, Summery, Autumnal, Wintery
