I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas

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 have lived in the Chicago area my whole life so I really don't mind a green Christmas now and then.

I guess not. After spending years with a white Christmas or cold one anyway I find I miss it.

@HazySue I also won't ever move away to a place that doesn't have all four seasons, I love them all.

Well I was born in a country where it's summer all year long. I've heard the song I'm dreaming of a white Christmas and I saw snow only on tv. So I never longed for snow but I do wish to see it someday.

I didn't realized how beautiful it is until I saw it in person.

@HazySue I think I will get the same feeling when I experience that in person too.

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.

What a sweet memory. I can remember the first time I saw snow and was delighted that I was able to have my first white Christmas that same year.

@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....

Absolutely! I missed it when I first left home. It had the audacity to rain on Christmas. So sad. I was in California at the time.

That would be a downer. I don't like the fact that many times it is warm enough to wear shorts on Christmas day.

@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.

I grew up with snow, and I would be pleased to never see it again. I have had my fill. A snow-less Christmas is a delight for me.

@HazySue Snow is very dangerous when it comes down quickly and piles up. Driving is hazardous too, and it requires so much work to remove it.

@Corbin5 I know it does. To tell the truth, I hate driving in the snow. If I could just look at it and enjoy it from the inside I would be a happy person.

I understand that years ago there were more white Christmases. Now it seems that the snow has left us high and dry.

I've never seen a white Christmas either and never had much to do with snow although I've seen it once.

Even if it does not snow, I only like to spend Christmas in a cold country. I never liked Christmas in Monte-Carlo, warm and sunny and with the sea.

It just doesn't seem like Christmas when you are wearing shorts.

@HazySue Well, we did not wear shorts in Monte-Carlo, it was not very hot, but usually sunny and warm.

Though I live in England, we don't often get a white Christmas. Snow is lovely to look at, not so lovely to get about in.

Since I live in Pennsylvania we get more than our share of snow and I'm happy if we don't have snow for Christmas so my family can travel without any problems. But I have to agree that a white Christmas is pretty

My husband had a snowblower and I didn't have to shovel the snow. It is so pretty, as long as you don't have to be out in it.

I had snow most of my childhood. I miss it a lot now! I'm grateful though that I grew up with having snow. My older kids love the snow and had it for a few years when we lived in NC. They miss it as well.

I like to loo at it but don't like driving through it. If I could stay inside and not have to go anywhere I would love it all the time.
