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.
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!
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.
Looks like a White Christmas is coming in Arkansas. Was forcasted for tonight, but rain turning to sleet already and especting snow to start anytime now. Weatherman says could be any where from 6-10 inches.
