Why do we hang our clothes on a washing line and not a drying line?

I dont hang them anywhere, I just throw them in the dryer

Since you didn't say they were wet, I hang mine on hangers.

Actually sometimes I hang them on the stairs and if I dont quite make it to my bedroom, they may be hanging off the corridor lamp

No, they actually "freeze" dry as fast as they dry on a warm sunny day. My dad used to hang his laundry out all year round.

Hanging your washing out when it's cold would be ok, if your fingers wouldn't get so frozen when you hang it up and take it down.
