Day 21 (Part 2): All I Want for Christmas...
... is snow.
Okay, okay, I know. You're shocked.
I dislike winter in colder climes. I can't stand snow. I grew up in Utah and experienced 17 years of winter, which was enough for me. There was no such thing as a snow day along the Wasatch Range. You got up, pulled on your snow clothes, trudged to the bus stop and went to school. But I digress...
There's just something about snow at Christmas that I adore. And unless I'm living somewhere like California or the deep South, there's no excuse for no snow at Christmas.*
I'd love for it to snow on December 23 through Christmas Eve, then have Christmas morning dawn with bright, deep blue skies and layers of crystalline liquid blanketing the ground and the trees.
I guess, bottom line is, I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...
Speaking of snow, here's a heartwarming Christmas memory from Miss Understood on the other side of the pond.
* Except that supposed liberal, extremist myth global warming, but that's a subject for a completely separate blog. (Please note my tongue buried deep in my cheek.)
