Triple cold

'Berekoud' is very cold, as cold as 'ijskoud' and 'steenkoud'. 

'Waterkoud', on the other hand, is a different kind of cold: the air feels a bit wet, but it’s not drizzling. It's my least favorite type of cold!

'Koudwatervrees' is a type of fear that is not necessary, such as fear of starting something new: ‘I had koudwatervrees to learn Dutch for quite some time, but now I love it!’ 'Koudwatervrees' is also used literally: afraid to jump into an ice bath.

Will it be a 'berekoude' Christmas? Or 'waterkoud'? And do you still have 'koudwatervrees' to learn Dutch? No need, it's actually quite fun!
