Think about your special winter apparel that sits in the closet all year long until winter arrives. Lavish thanks and praise upon this clothing that protects you from the very real dangers and damage that severe cold can do to your body — especially your extremities. Thanks are due to winter coats, scarves, hats, muffler, earmuffs, gloves, boots, long underwear, and knitted face-masks.
