When people say England and Christmas in the same sentence what image comes to mind?
Is it a small village, choir boys, snowmen on the village green with a blanket of white everywhere?
Well, I'm 18 years old and in the 18 Christmas' (Christmasses? Christmas'? Christmi? Whatever the plural is) I have never had one white christmas.
It's been grey sky and rain all the way......
Let's hope for one this year?
"Glo-orrrrrr-orrrrrr-orrrrrr-OR-ia....in Excelsis Deooooo..."
that song comes to mind. one of my favorites!
Thats tragic! Come to Minnesota. We always have snow on christmas..but you gotta be ok with 20 degree weather with wind that makes it feel like its below -30
To be honest, Christmas day isn't the day I really want it, because I'm made to be inside with relatives all day and couldn't enjoy it with friends as I'd like XD give me a white boxing day anytime
You have no idea how lucky you are having one...
Last year I had two snow days off school - IN APRIL
Talk about messed up haha.
Move up north. We got 40 cm ( sorry can't convert that, about foot and half of snow), and still snowing. Wind chill -10. Lovely. Not really when you have to shovel. Of course, here the weather is labile. Here an old adage is, "If you don't like the weather, wait half an hour". Besides Christmas is not where you are, or what the weather is like, it is who you are with. Merry Christmas!
If you live anywhere near Cumbria , where they've just had those awful floods with bridges collapsing, etc., I can almost guarantee you a white xmas this year. I've been living in a warm climate for the past 20 years for the sake of my health. This year I'm going to be visiting my daughter in a tiny town (I'd call it a village) Murpheys' Law tells me it will snow for the 1st time in years. Cheers, mate.
23rd is my birthday!! I'd rather have a white 23rd as well. Can't remember the last time (if ever) it's snowed on my birthday!
Christmas in Australia is often very hot. Half of the time is spent at park parties outdoors, or in our own backyards by the pool. I have never seen a white Christmas and do not mind at all. I hate the cold!
It will not stop snowing up here. Wind chill at -10 with high winds, whiteouts, Only one out is our dog - Newfoundland-/black Lab cross. It is so cold that even the dog is wearing a coat!!!
I live in South GA, so a white Christmas is extremely rare. We did get one several years ago when my girls were kids. It was magical! I'd like to live somewhere that got snow until New Year's Day and then spring on Jan. 2. I know - dream on!
It's funny that our idea of Christmas sprang from Charles Dickens, but back then they had snow as it was towards the end of the Little Ice Age, if not the end. We have some here, not much yet, but it is cold.
Oh I would go to England anytime, I don't even care if it's gray, rainy, foggy, who cares! I love snow, and where I live in PA, sometimes we have snow or rain on Christmas, but definitely gray skies. I start to tire of the cold and snow around February, which leaves a couple of months left to tolerate. All that said, I usually head down to Florida for Christmas because my family is there. Last year, we swam in a (heated) pool and hung out in a hot tub on Christmas eve, sipping on a nice Cabernet. Plan to do the same this year...hope the weather cooperates. As far as my expectations of what Christmas should or should not be, I've let all of those notions go...I guess age does that to you. It is what it is, and I'm find with whatever that may be.
I'm from UK as well, the most you get is a couple cm of snow overnight, which turns to slush in the morning. I did go to Australia for one Christmas and that was surreal, they had Christmas decorations out in the Summertime.

When I was out shopping yesterday no one had on jackets here in central Texas. In fact, many many people were in shorts as we had really warm temperatures. I ran the air conditioner in my truck coming home! A cold front we were expecting blew in early this morning and we are now having SNOW...
