DUBLIN, New Hampshire (January/February 2012)—Yankee Magazine’s January/February issue, on newsstands December 27, extols the virtues of winter with a not-so-serious guide and 43 reasons why sticking around may be more satisfying than fleeing to a warmer clime; plus articles featuring winter driving tips, recipes for hearty and savory pies to eat before dessert, and the best five cross-country ski trails in New England.

“Nobody really loves scraping a windshield or negotiating an ice-slicked road,” admits Yankee Magazine’s editor Mel Allen.”But those are the obstacles of winter. Loving winter is something else. Yankee’s January/February issue is about that something else and why loving winter can be more satisfying than leaving it.”
