How, where and when

"How", "where" and "when" are not supposed to be used at the beginning of a sentence unless the sentence is a question.

Why is it then that so many maltese start the sentence with these words? Example of phrases I have heard so so many times:

How cold/hot it is!!
How nice to sit outside!!
How long I have not seen you!! (Honestly I heard a very posh lady say this to a friend of her's)

Where I come from, you can buy this for a few pence.

When you visit your grandma, make sure you give her a hug
