The weather's getting colder and that means good and bad news. The good news? It's the holiday season! And the bad news is—of course—the weather can make celebrating properly a little difficult.
The silver lining in this is that as long as you drive safely and pick fun activities to ring in the holidays and the new year that minimize the opportunities for accidents to happen, you'll have a great winter season.
