There’s Snow Time Like Christmas!

It’s Christmastime, and whether you’re expecting a white Christmas or not, this time of year always conjures up images of sleigh rides and pretty little white steepled churches with children running and playing in the snow. OK, I grew up in New Orleans, but I still saw the pretty Christmas cards every year with these quaint idyllic New England scenes on them, often enhanced with glitter to make them sparkle, so I get the concept.

Well, this year I’ll be spending Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere, so unless I get up on a mountain at just the right (or wrong) time, my chances of playing in snow are pretty slim. But that doesn’t mean I can’t leave you with some snowy images from past years in Iceland, Washington, Wyoming, and Alberta to enjoy.

So whether you’re celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah or something else this year, have a safe and happy holiday season!
