When you think back to your childhood winters, what textures, scents and sounds evoke your most vivid memories? If you grew up in an area with four seasons, these probably include the smell of fresh sap that had hardened in the cold but quickly became sticky when you made contact with the warmth of your finger, or the smell of wood burning in your fireplace.
