Basically, whose from Australia/South Equater region and settling in for a hot Christmas day?


I was looking at some pics of peoples snow covered backyards, and it seems SO foreign and strange to me! Needless to say, I'd love to experience a snowy Christmas!

Bought a lovely dress for Christmas Day, it's strapless and made in India, so quite unique and special


Cheers, Jess

You lucky, lucky sod!!

Its unlikely to be snowing in the UK for Christmas - thats just an advertisers fantasy - more likely to be bucketing down like it is at the moment.

So - its umbrellas and wellys for me again this year

I'm in New York and I haven't had many white Christmases myself. A few years ago we had a decent storm, but it ended up ruining everyone's dinner plans because no one could make it to my cousin's house. I love snow (karenlovessnow) and I never get enough.

The last really good winter we had was when I moved to my current house in Putnam County, the winter of

1995-96. We had 14 snowstorms!

I don't mind not having snow, really. But I would prefer not rain or really strong wind either.

I live in Canada, you'd THINK we'd get snow!! (well... There's about an inch on the ground right now but it won't last)... but here in South-Western Ontario I've lived through enough green & soggy Christmases to not get my hopes up just yet.

I don't actually celebrate Christmas, but when you live in Southern California, you're used to having snowless Christmases. The closest thing Christmas celebrants around here have for a snowy Christmas is Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles. The city puts down ice in Pershing Square for the holidays so people can ice skate.

Of course, there's always the mountains not too far away, but you actually have to GO there to play in the snow.

I live on the Gulf Coast of Texas. We get a snow around every ten years or so.

It snowed on Christmas Eve of 2004, and I swear every single person in my entire town was out with cameras and video recorders.It was a pretty big deal.

We hardly ever get snow at Christmas, it normally turns up in January. But sometimes it's all frosty and foggy, which is pretty nice, hopefully it will be this year since it's colder than usual

Another Texan here. Sallyomally has it right, though I'm a couple hundred miles north of her in Dallas. I'm 21 and it has snowed two or three times in my lifetime, never on Christmas and it never sticks to the ground. It falls out of the sky for about 15 minutes and everyone takes photographs and video tapes it, then it melts.

Up until three days ago it was 80 degrees in Dallas...so even though it isn't technically summer here like in the southern hemisphere, it isn't exactly winter either.

me at least it better be hot because I've gone to a mammoth effort for my guests

As for the snowy xmas thing, I've experienced one before overseas, and it was nice...very pretty and fairytale-like, but it's not something I'd like to do every year.

I like xmas day the best when I spend it outside in the back yard having a veggie barbie and chilling round the pool with my friends and family.


gawd...im so from the burbs
