This winter, in the North Hemisphere, we need to economize gas, electricity, to minimize the huge price increase, and to help Ukraine.

The topic will be related to get warm using quilts, fire, blankets, jackets, a hug etc...

I realise this challenge is mostly people-photography oriented but I would like to contribute with a macro photo instead.
Insects have to wait patiently in the morning to warm up sufficiently to be active.

Oh, and now I am at it here's a landscape-like picture as well. A detail photo of the the melting of Schneeferner Glacier on Zugspitze, Germany's tallest mountain. According to the scientists the glacier will be completely gone by 2030 for the first time in at least 15,000 years (since the last Ice Age) due to global warming.

The planet is getting warm...

At 13 degrees north, I'm barely in the Northern Hemisphere, but occasionally we're cold enough at a thousand meters that if I had central heating, I'd put it on.  I still have warm socks for those nights.

And on the cooler days, people wear long sleeved flannel shirts:

And sometimes, when I was back in the US, just staying indoors and looking out was better than getting rigged up to wade out into almost a meter of fresh snow (storm in 2010 before I moved to Nicaragua).2HF3699.jpg

Going to need a bit of lateral thinking for this one !

 

1) Running to keep warm

2)  If all else fails wear a thing around your ears

Hmm! looked in my port and have not come up with anything suitable so will have to miss this one unless there is something suitable waiting in QC and it passes in time.

Cycling to get warm

Encouraging to see that the local authority clears the cycle paths in your neck of the woods John. I came off my bike on ice the winter before last, the road having been gritted, but the cycle path ignored.

Winter is usually the best time of year to be in North Florida, and we aren’t typically looking for ways to stay warm except for, possibly, a few unusual days.

Actually, that's mother nature's handiwork -- i.e. melting. Vancouver doesn't usually get much snow, and when we do, the city is awful at clearing streets. They don't even bother clearing sidewalks, side streets, and bike/walking paths. Shoveling to get warm might have been a better image selection, but I don't have any. ❄️

Difficult challenge, people orientated. I'll give it a go.

For Beatles fans, it's cold and wet but the Fab 4 don't seem to mind.

We came across this dog shivering on a beach on the Gower Peninsula.My wife jumped on the opportunity to give it a squeeze and warm it up at the same time.

On a whale watching trip on the St Lawrence. This girl started off the trip laughing and joking but she soon found out how cold it is on the St Lawrence - the wind and spray were freezing and she retreated into the windproof with just the topknot remaining. She was wearing a skimpy little top where everyone else had on their thick coats and she found out why. Skimpy tops sat at a table with a beer are fine. On a zodiac in the middle of the St Lawrence you leave your T-shirt at home and grab your fleece.

Celebrating Nowruz the Persian New Year with Charshanbe Suri at a community garden in nyc. People jump over bonfires to symbolically purge themselves of any ill health and bad luck (yellow = coldness) from yesteryear, gaining good luck and good health from the fire (red = warmth).

Struggling to come up with three for this challenge but perhaps this chap qualifies.

1. Museum display showing clothes worn by Antarctic explorer Captain Lawrence Oates to keep warm, sadly not very successfully.
