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!
