Winter television ....

We don't watch a lot of TV in our household to begin with, but in the winter our TV usage drops off considerably.

Why? Because it's too cold inside!

That's right ... I said it's too cold inside.

Unlike most households in North America, we have only one TV in our home and that TV is located in a room where I've sealed off all the heat vents. The room can be warmed up using the wood stove or the electric space heater but usually we simply put on our winter coats, hats and gloves to watch our favourite shows.

We are quite the sight on a cold winter night. You would think that we were just about to head out to go tobogganing but instead we are just settling in for a family TV night.

We don't do many things the easy way around our home. Why should watching TV be any different?
