There's something magical about the first snowfall each year, watching the white flakes fall from the sky and accumulate all around you. However, the first big snowstorm of the season is often even more exciting than those first few light flakes. The next time you're granted a day off of work because of all that white stuff that's piling up, you'll want to know how to stay warm and cozy inside.

Drink Hot Liquids
There's no better way to enjoy snow than by watching it pile up on your window sill, from the warmth of your own home. If you're still feeling a slight chill or draft, boil hot water in your tea kettle and pour yourself a steaming mug of tea or coffee. The hot drink will warm your body as soon as you take that first sip. If you decide to spend some time outdoors walking through the falling snow, building a snowman or shoveling your driveway, treat yourself to a festive hot drink. Take off your gloves and warm up with a cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows.

Get Your Fireplace Going
You've been waiting all year to get your fireplace going and a snowstorm is the perfect time to start. If you're settling in for a winter's evening at home or have the day off from work, you can finally put all of that freshly chopped wood to work. Getting a fire going in your fireplace creates a warm and calming atmosphere in your home - you'll feel your body temperature rise just from looking at it!

Break out Your Heated Blankets
Layers and fireplaces aside, the most comfortable way to warm up is to wrap yourself in a big, fuzzy quilt or blanket. Use your heated blanket or heated throw to keep you and your family members extra toasty during the next snowstorm.

Layer Up
The best way to keep warm during a snowstorm is by layering up. The more layers you wear, the harder it is for the heat to escape from your body. Now is the perfect time to break out your crazy colored - but super cozy - thick winter socks. Snowstorms are the perfect excuse to stay in your pajamas all day long. Grab your favorite pair of pajamas, layer up, grab a mug of hot chocolate and stay cozy by the fire all afternoon.
