Fresh snow for Christmas!!!

23 Dec

I was so excited when I got out of bed this morning! We had about 5 inches of fresh snow covering everything…just in time for a White Christmas in New England! Yippee!! It made for a messy drive to work, but worth it.

I’ve done a little research and discovered that a White Christmas has many definitions. In some places, it’s good enough to have snow on the ground come Christmas morning, although the amounts vary. In other places, it must actually snow during the 24 hours of Christmas day – even if it’s only one snowflake mixed with rain.

For me, snow on the ground is good enough! I have always lived in New England and it “feels” like Christmas to me when the ground is white and it’s cold outside. Maybe we’ll build a snowman or woman… Maybe we’ll go snowshoeing while the turkey is cooking… Or, maybe we’ll just sit by the fire, listen to Christmas music and look at the tree while sipping a steaming cup of coffee… Whatever we choose, we’ll enjoy being together and relaxing!

P.S.  Sorry, no recipe with this post, just my wishes to everyone for a holiday filled with peace, laughter and joy!

    A white Christmas how lovely. I suspect that it is easier to get about in the US when the snow arrives as you guys seem to be able to deal with it so much better than we do here in the UK. A mere sprinkling and all stops. Have a great Christmas and all the best for 2012.

    Thanks for your comment! At least in the northern states, we can deal with snow easier – plenty of plow and sand trucks! The southern states don’t have the equipment to handle it. Some of us still don’t know how to drive in it though, and end up in the ditch… We typically don’t let it stop us from going about our business, especially in Maine!

    Best wishes for the New Year! Thank you for following my blog!

    Beautiful post, Anne! Christmas in New England just wouldn’t be the same without a little “white stuff!” Gorgeous snow image. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!

    Thank you, Nanette and Lula, for commenting! The snow was nice while it lasted… warm rain this week washed it all away. Winter is just beginning and I’m sure there’s more “white stuff” to come! Happy New Year!!
