    Do you live in a place where it snows? Do you get White Christmas's?

    Yes, I live in Northeast Tennessee. We normally have quite a bit of snow in the mountains here, I can recall having many white Christmas's. There is nothing like having a white Christmas. Love them.

    I am so lucky to live in a place where we get a white Christmas every year. It often doesn't show up the week before Christmas, but I am thrilled when it does. It just wouldn't feel like Christmas without it.

    I live in Central Pennsylvania, and it snows here a lot. We usually have snow on the ground for Christmas. However, this year, I am questioning whether or not we will have a white Christmas. Just two days ago it was over 70 degrees out. If we do not start having more seasonal weather, the ground won't be cold enough for any snow we do get to lay.

      Yeah, we're having unseasonably warm weather for this time of year. We're looking for Christmas trees and shopping in shorts, t-shirts, and sandals. Yuk!

    Yes, but it looks like it's too warm for a white Christmas this year.

    I used to live in Arizona and we didn't get snow, but I was from Pennsylvania originally and grew up where it snowed quite a bit. My boyfriend wanted to be close to his family, so we moved to the Chicago area. We get a lot of snow, more than Pennsylvania. I miss the warm weather of Arizona, but I still like the four seasons we have here. I love the changing leaves and the snow that begins falling around November. Everything is always brown in Arizona. It had its own kind of beauty especially in the mountains, but the beauty of the four seasons can't be beat. Yes, we get white Christmas's occasionally just because it can snow so much. However, the weather has been warm here this year, so I don't know that we will get much snow or a white Christmas.

      Houston is like Arizona, mild winters and no snow.

    I do get to have White Christmas pretty much every year, but I don't really like snow... I know, I suck! I just don't like winter and cold in general!

      I'm not a big fan of winter and snow and cold that comes with it either. I guess we both suck!!

    joanwz,

    I've lived in Michigan all of my life and it snows pretty much every winter. Growing up I remember having a white Christmas most years. The colorful lights at night during the holiday season look amazing under a new fallen snow.

      I'll bet the colored lights DO look amazing with that white backdrop of snow.

      The lights do look especially pretty when a light snow falls onto of them. The colors are softened by the blanket of white. Lisa

    I live in South Africa.  As I am in the Southern Hemisphere, the only chance of a white Christmas would be if we had a really severe hailstorm, which does happen from time to time.  I certainly hope we don't have another one anytime soon.
    Where I live it hardly ever snows.  We've had snow here three times in the last thirty years.

    Never in Mumbai does it snow at Christmas. It is hot and humid over Christmas. Mild pleasant weather really.

    I live in Milwaukee, WI.  There's probably snow-covering 80% of the time, I'd guess.  We had a bizarre winter with almost no snow last year.  Many grumble about the snow, but it reflects extra light in the dark winter, which is what I love.  And there's almost a softer background noise or something when snow covers everything.  It's tranquil.

      Wow, I didn't realize that it muffled sound like that. I live in Houston area where we never get snow unless it's a freak event.

    It's in the 70's where I live, and I love it. I came from a snowy place and wasn't a fan of the cold air, driving, or walking conditions (I fell on ice my share of times) in the winter. I will admit it is pretty, but that just doesn't weigh as heavily when I can't control my car.

    If a day ever comes that I wish to visit the snow, I can do so by heading north for a couple hours. Meanwhile, watching Christmas movies seems to provide me all the snowy images I need. There is also a town nearby where snow is made each year on a day in December. It gives the local children a chance to play in the snow.

    Right here, Carinthia, Austria, it's snowing pretty hard, the scraping sound of shovels everywhere as the neighbours are clearing their pavements and driveways of that white stuff. Skiing season is on since mid November ad it lasts till Easter.
    In the moment there is even snow at Venice, but it wo'nt last till Christmas, I'm sure.
    Seasons Greetings out of W├Ârthersee, wetskirt

    I live in northern Michigan, and we have not received that much snow. We actually had zero snow yesterday, and today we woke up to 4 inches on the ground, but, most of it was melted by the afternoon. It seems that our winters here are arriving later, and making our usually flowering springs miserable. last year it was warmer in January and February, then it was in March. April was also cold, and when May came, we went from the 40's to the 80's in a week. Then it stayed that way the rest of summer, and even into September.

    It is snowing outside as am answering your questions, and yes so far all the 6 years I have been here and seen the X'mas, it has been a white Christmas !! And I love it deep down in my heart !!

    i live in Ontario Canada on the Michigan border and we get plenty of snow. not as much as we did years ago but it is white outside as i write this and we will most likely end up with at least 2ft., of snow by x-mas.

    Yes, it definitely snows where I live.  I get white Christmas's almost every year.  I'd rather have a white Christmas than a green one.

    Unfortunately, no. Here in Florida, we have very few days below freezing and it makes for great longing to be back home in PA to have a White Christmas. My kids have never experienced a white Christmas and have only seen snow a few times in their life. It doesn't feel like Christmas without the snow and with temps in the 70-80s.

    I grew up in Pennsylvania and we frequently had white Christmases. Now I am living in the south, so I have to go back home to PA if I want some real snow!

      Faith, same as me. I so very much miss the winters in PA. I grew up skiing and I just long for home especially during the fall and winter.

    This will be my first Christmas in South Carolina and we still haven't gotten any snow. I admit I'm getting a little disappointed. I have never liked snow much, since where I'm from you can get snow as early as November and it'll linger until about February or March, but I can appreciate it on Christmas.

    Yes, and no! Or hardly ever! And anyway we have not been promised a white Christmas this year in the UK, it will be grey and drizzly.
    Just like it always is.

    Yep, in London it snows pretty much most years now. The thing is, I love playing in the snow and snowboarding and the like but doing mundane things in the snow is just a drag - commuting in the snow, slipping on the pavement in the ice etc. It's good for holidays but not for living in! (That's why I've booked a week on the ski slopes of Austria this year!)

    No. I live in tropical area where there's no snow at my place because we only have dry and rainy seasons. White Christmas perhaps christmas during winter and snowy.
