Is there a better season than winter? Sure, it’s cold out. But isn’t that just another reason to pour one more cup of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows? Yes, snow means having to perform our least favorite chore, shoveling. But isn’t it worth it to see children’s eyes light up while they’re building snowmen and igloos? Winter may be cold, but hot off the heels of Thanksgiving, winter holidays like Christmas and Valentine’s Day encourage us to celebrate the joy of being around loved ones.

At Best of NJ, we think there are a ton of reasons to love winter. Which is why we’ve put together this NJ Winter landing page, filled with original editorial content and statewide event listings for the entire season. From winter holidays to seasonal activities, we’ve rounded up all of our best winter-themed stories in one convenient place. Whether you’re just visiting for Christmas, looking for love on Valentine’s Day, or picking out the perfect way to spend a snowy day, you’ll find everything you need right here!
