The first snow of the year always feels magical

Why does the first snowfall of the year always seem magical? 🙂

The First Snowfall

The snow had begun in the gloaming,
And busily all the night
Had been heaping field and highway
With a silence deep and white.

~ By James Russell Lowell

(An excerpt from his poem, ca 1855)
