White Christmas?

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten,
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white


Irving Berlin, 1942







Okay! Okay! What’s with this?? Now I don’t know about where you live but over here in Canada (aka The Great White North), we are supposed to have snow for Christmas … not a little bit, not nothing but a lot. Now, as you can see from my photographs that were taken this afternoon, we did not greet Christmas morning in the traditional fashion. I opened the door to let the dog out into the green snow-less yard and I could hear sparrows chirping!

Okay … so … what is with that???

The other day, I tracked down a copy of the documentary An Inconvenient Truth by former American Vice-President Al Gore and I think that his conclusion is correct when he asserts that Global Warming is responsible. Now I am not going to get onto that subject right now though you can be sure that you will be hearing about that one from me soon.

Anyways, back to Christmas morning … We had a great Christmas morning around the Christmas tree. With my daughter away at college during the school year and my son working after school and on weekends, we get little or no time to all be together so holidays like this are always very special.

So, when you actually think about it, dreaming of a white Christmas or a green Christmas is really immaterial to what is important … a loving Christmas. So to all you that pass by my blog often or even just once in awhile, have yourself a very merry Christmas!
