We won't be getting a White Christmas...

...here in England. The weather forecasters have said it will be grey and dull and mild temperatures. That's not untypical, I must say, though we did have snow and ice earlier in November and December. It's a bit disappointing as there's still a childlike part of me which yearns for the Christmas card scenery! I know some parts of US have suffered badly with ice storms etc., and you probably can't wait to see it go, but ho about you. Where you live will it be a White Christmas?

We won't get one in Indonesia as well, since it is a tropical country and we never have white Christmas ever since I have born. LOL. I think it is fine not to have the white christmas, I know it would not look as beautiful as when you have show in your decoration but well... That's not what the Christmas spirit should be, right?

Ditto from down south too! I can't remember the last time we got a true white christmas and I don't mean a spatter of snow either, I mean a full fully grown blanket of snow every where, I think it might have even been as late back as the 70s! Our winters are very mild, although I am not complaining I am not keen on the snow, it's lovely to watch and it's very nice to see but driving in it and going out in it is treacherous and typically British fashion we can't deal with too much snow anyhow, we are never prepared for it ha ha ha! No doubt the sun will be out Christmas Day or it will be raining. Oh well, Happy Christmas anyhow, white or not!

Where I live, it's mostly warm and dry, but we are going to get a bit of heavy rain on Christmas. I've seen a few little rock slides around my neighborhood. There is snow in our mountains, though. I hate snow, so I don't mind. There seems to be a lot of snow in the U.S. this year.

We had snow a couple of weeks ago, which I'm told is most unusual for this area. Thankfully, it's now all thawed and away, and the temperature has risen again. We can still see snow on the peaks of the mountains, and that is quite close enough for me thanks! Snow looks beautifully romantic for twenty minutes after it first falls, but it's appeal fades for me very rapidly and I'll be quite happy to live without a white Christmas. I suppose that if I lived in a country where snow was an everyday occurance then I may view it a little differently. Here's, it's just an inconvenience that I could do without.
