I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas
November 28, 2017 8:53am CST
As a person who was born and raised in Florida, I am still amazed at how much I long for a white Christmas. Every year I think about that beautiful powdery snow drifting down from the sky covering everything is sight with a pure glittering blanket of snow. I spent the first 16 years of my life in Florida and had never seen snow until we moved up to New Jersey. The first time I saw snow it was magical. I have loved it ever since. Now years later I feel that Christmas just doesn't feel like Christmas without it. I am hoping that someday we will be able to move back up north somewhere that has a white Christmas. Do you feel Christmas doesn't feel like Christmas without the snow?

I live in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, and we rarely are able to enjoy a white Christmas. And its is okay with me, its easier for driving when its dry. The prettiest was in the late 1990's. We had just moved to the tiny little village that we lived in for 20 years, and our son was around 7 years old. We went to midnight mass and the snow was gently falling as we walked thru the dark parking lot to the front door to the church all the while the church bells were ringing-it was like a dream. I remember our son fell asleep on my lap during mass and the couple behind us thought that was so cute.

@HazySue I think that we were almost the last ones out of the church that night. My husband got out early to warm up the car and then I had to wait until the crowds dispersed so that I could safely carry our still sleeping son out and down the stairs. Memories....

@HazySue It's rare it's that warm here, though it has happened. Not this year though. I don't see that happening, even if it was in the 50's here a couple days ago. We're in the colder temps now, so we'll have a cold Christmas, and I hope a white one as well.
