How I wish! As what I have understood, white Christmas means the presence of snow during Christmas season. Here in our country, Philippines, we do not have the opportunity to experience snow so I won't be able to experience a white Christmas this upcoming Christmas day.
However, in the future, I look forward to experiencing snow during the holidays. I would like to go somewhere where there is a presence of snow and also where I could see the Northern Lights. It has been my dream ever since I was a child to experience seeing snowflakes fall.
If I ever get the chance to experience a white Christmas, I look forward to doing these things:
I hope I can tick this off in my bucket list soon! Great question and I hope my answer helps!
Noup! We have too hot a weather in Venezuela. Only the highest pats of the Andean state of Merida has some snow.
I live in Cumaná, on the north-eastern part of the country and we may see some rain and feel some cool breeze early in the morning. That’d be the closest will get to cold Christmas.
It will be cold, though, in other respects. The traditional family warmth produced by relatives visiting will see itself dwindled and diminished, partly as the result of the massive migration that our country has been experiencing (I think that by now there is not one home that has not lost someone to the Diaspora), and partly to the difficulty people have now to travel, even from relatively close places (say, a two-hour-drive).
It is not easy to host any visit these days, so people will be working miracles to feed those who already live under their roofs.
Not many people will be able to buy new clothes to dress for the occasion and perform the tradition exhibition of new looks and “estrenos”.
For three years now we have seen almost no fireworks in the sky on Christmas and new year’s eve.
The traditional festivities will be considerably affected. The traditional food (about which I posted a response some days ago) will be non-existent in many homes, thus, all the dancing, and drinking and eating in which we used to occupy our time during these holidays will be substituted by routine activities. Most people I know will try to take it easy to avoid the emotional hit of disbanded families and reduced resources. It is certainly going to be the coldest Christmas we’ve had so far, and that without a single snowflake.
I hope so. There's high chance for that. The weather forecast says it's going to snow the day after tomorrow, let's hope there will be plenty of snow till Christmas.
Christmas means snow where I live and that's how it should be. I love white Christmas and not only me, all kids around here love white Christmas. Not to mention that Santa Claus is coming to town on a sleigh. If there's no snow, he won't come and you don't want that. :)
I'm always curious to see how it is to celebrate Christmas at the beach in Australia, or other places where there is hot.
I am afraid so. Snow can look lovely, but in a city that loveliness lasts for maybe an hour and then all the streets look muddy and dirty. And with snow and ice you have more accidents on the streets, elderly people slipping, etc. And more accidents on highways too. But for a short while it really looks beautiful :)
