20 Days Till Christmas

I've been feeling a bit of a panic as Christmas is coming closer.

I have almost all my shopping done.

I have some Christmas decorations up around the house.

..................but there is no snow.


I can't get in the mood for Christmas without snow.

Christmas caroling on green grass is just not right.

Going out in the dark night to the Christmas program at church with no white drifts covering the fields will feel strange.

Wrapping presents after the munchkins are tucked in bed won't be right if there isn't a soft white glow coming through the window from the yard light shining on a few snowbanks.

I don't even feel like baking Christmas cookies.

(I'm never moving to Florida!)

How about you--do you need snow for it to feel like Christmas?


  1. Christmas in mid-summer is something I can't get used to here!

  2. Emma-I thought of you when I was writing this post! There is something about growing up with cold snowy winters and Christmases that never quite leaves you. :)

  3. I can have Christmas spirit without snow. I just don't like snow at all. :)

    It can be cold but no snow necessary!

  4. AmyLK-I love snow--as long as I don't have to drive anywhere in it. If I have a warm cozy house to be in it can blizzard away and I'm happy as a clam. :)

  5. If it was colder here in Ohio, we would be buried in snow! We have had inches and inches of rain in the last week!


Please comment I love hearing from you!
