December 30th -- Snow !
I love snow in moderation. I think it is the most beautiful thing to watch snow fall in fluffy piles from the warmth of being inside my home -- it is so peaceful and relaxing. However, I like snow if it's a few inches, not when it's several feet and makes traveling dangerous. I do believe, for myself, that it's not really winter or Christmas without snow. I'm sure winter and Christmas are beautiful and special without snow, but because I've always lived somewhere that experiences every season, it's what I'm used to.
This year, I'm really into snow because the snow we've had in this part of Jersey has been minimal and beautiful. It snowed today even, for the second time this December! Snow is a pretty controversial subject in my house, as my dad refers to it as "white stuff from hell," but we definitely don't all see it this way, and I don't believe that he even feels that way all the time. Snow will always be something I associate with the Christmas season, and I think they say it best in White Christmas -- "snow, it won't be long before we'll all be there with snow, snow, I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow."
