Winter is here and we couldn't be happier.

Who are we kidding? We dread the official start of the season. Even though things like skiing and skating are classically Canadian, we just can't seem to shake off how annoying shovelling, getting sick and freezing our butts off can be.

And with winter officially here on Dec. 21, we've rounded up some of the most hated things about Canadian winters. The slush, the ice and our cold noses. Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments below:

  • Winter Is Supposed To Be All About The Details
    Like snowflakes that don't look alike.
  • And Trees Look Beautiful
    Even without the green
  • And Touching Snow Gives You A Magical Sensation In Your Fingertips
    It's beautiful.
  • But Sometimes In Our Beautiful Country, Winter Can Look Like This
    Do you see my house?
  • And It Makes A Lot Of Us Feel Like This Happened
    Woosh
  • And While Shovelling Looks Easy
    Yup, seems easy
  • It Makes Us Rage Like This

    Why did I buy a house with a driveway?
  • And Often We Don't Have Balance On Ice
    Tumblr
    Oh, just saved myself
  • But More Often, We Fall
    My face.
  • And Sometimes Our Feet Get Really Wet
    Down with puddles
  • And Our Nose Is Always Running
    And it's hard to always look good
  • And We're Always Freezing
    Tumblr
    From head to toe
  • And It's Unfortunate We Can't Work Like This Every Day
  • Even The Cops Have Trouble

  • And There's Snow, But Not Enough To Have Snow Days
  • A Lot Of Us Are Not Good At Winter Sports
  • And Why Are Our Shoes Always Full Of Salt?
  • People Hardly Make Eye Contact
    Because they obviously can't see where they are going
  • And Someone We Know Is Always Getting Sick
  • AND WE NEVER SEE RABBITS ON ICE
    We've been lied to
  • People May Tell Us To Stop Complaining, But ...
    We'll see you in spring
