I'm hopeless at science and I had a dream last night that I was dancing with Olaf from Frozen and it was so cold I could see my breath. Can anyone who is good at science explain why this happens?

Because it feels social on cold days, it reminds it of Xmas so it comes out and says hi (thus meaning you can see thou breath)

I know but that was a long time ago! I'm 18 now and haven't done science since GCSE.
