The 12 Days of Christmas...Day 7.


I often joke that Christmas would be more convenient if it was in the Summer months.  (The traveling would be easier for sure!)  Sadly, it wouldn't BE Christmas without the snow. I can't imagine living somewhere that didn't participate in a wintery wonderland during this holiday season, it wouldn't be the same. I'm sure it's 'doable'...you would still have the gifts, tree, baking, gatherings, smells and sounds....but no snow?!?!  There is nothing more perfect than going out for a walkabout on Christmas Eve and having a gentle snow fall greet you.

Having said that don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of winter, I'd be content with snow on Christmas Eve and green grass on Boxing Day!

Day 7 is for the snow that makes Christmas what Christmas should be.

"I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know, where the tree-tops glisten and children listen to hear sleigh bells in the snow." ~ Irving Berlin
