I love a whole lot of snow, blizzards are the best. I want what Buffalo had a few years back, 7 feet of snow. Not for Black Friday, I couldn't even get out of the house.

There is 4 x's during the year that I want snow: Thanksgiving day, Christmas Eve, Christmas day and Valentine's Day. But in Maine that isn't likely to be the only 4 days with SNOW!

I love Christmas with snow--we have had it the last three Christmases in a row. Hope we do again this year.

I'm still kinda new to the concept of a white Christmas and I just love it when it happens. :)

I become less and less interested in white christmases each year.....it's a romantic idea I'd be happy to just see in the movies :)

I would love a white Christmas but it's highly unlikely here.

I like snow...as long as I don't have to drive in it. The whole star trek warp speed effect freaks me out. (snow coming at you as you are driving through it...looks like you are shooting through space or something) And ice on the road makes me really nervous. I'm not used to that at all. It was only last year that I even got behind the wheel if there was snow on the ground. This year I am not going to have the option of staying home though LOL.

It was a big deal to me when I was a kid. I remember one year the forecast was pretty grim, virtually no chance for snow on Christmas. Then when we woke up on Christmas, it had snowed quite a bit (well, quite a bit being at least a few inches). Thought that was something. It's harder to get into the Christmas spirit now as an adult, but once we have kids I think it'll be even better than when I was a kid myself.

Yep same...though this is my 4th year of being in America and having winter during Christmas. It was nice when we got snow...and getting extra days off work for "snow days"...probably won't happen again for maybe another 5 years or so. :)

I like just enough to cover the grass and be able to make a small snowman. And only on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The rest of the year I could do without it completely.

blecc no snow for me, please. Grew up in the midwest and enjoy the 1/4 day of snow we get here a year and that works well for me, if I want more (which I don't) I can go to the mountains, but I'm perfectly happy not having snow on Christmas, I wouldn't mind spending time on the beach in my bathing suit on Christmas ;)

Not likely to happen here. LOL Snow's pretty to look at, but having to get out in it to carry day to day business is miserable. I'm not really gonna miss it. (Or the winter depression for that matter) While you guys are (freezing and) enjoying the snow, I'll plop my butt out on the beach... Then we can all be happy.. LOL

I love the snow, but I do hate having to get around in it. That said, I'd take a white Christmas over driving from one house to another any day. It would be the perfect excuse not to have to go visit a million people.:2woot: :holiday14

I never want to see another white/icy christmas again!! It makes driving to my mother's house impossible and wrecks my perfectly good car.

We've not had ANY snow here since 1993. We did have one Christmas a few years before that were we had a dusting of snow. I have gotten so used to no snow that it doesn't even matter anymore. Amie

I live in NY and I hate the snow! I can live without snow all year round. I could live without on Christmas also. Driving in snow is like driving to hell I hate it my hands hurt when I get out of the car from the death grip I have on the wheel. I try to stay home as much as possible in the winter.

I love the snow and it's just a Bonus when we get it on Christmas. Last year it started snowing on Christmas Eve and snowed into the night. It made a great Christmas perfect.

Snow is fine as long as there is no ice and the roads are clear.

I think I'll try defying gravity .... and you can't pull me down!!!

I guess this is a case of the 'grass is always greener on the other side'. The people who get snow regularly can do without it and the ones who never get it want it. I'm one of the ones who doesn't get it. I grew up in Mississippi and we would get snow once in a blue moon...I'm in Louisiana now and no snow. I want snow so bad!

Im in Ohio and weather here is very fickle. One year it will be a snowstorm and the next just cold. I just hate the ice storms we get

I really have no choice. Chances of not having snow on Christmas are slim to none in parts of NY west of Syracuse

Yeah. You would think we got a lot. But surprisingly enough, we only get REAL bad snow storms once in a great while. We may get a little snow before christmas, but not alot and the snow is usually in jan and feb.

I love having snow for Christmas. The past couple of years we have had some, if not alot, of snow. Usually it doesn't start to really snow here in northern Indiana until January or February. But we've been seeing signs of a early and hard winter here so we may get snow in December again this year too. I love it when it snows on Christmas Eve! That happened a couple of years ago and I was just enchanted! I'm like a kid about Christmas!

I like to have snow by Thanksgiving, because I ski and hunt, so it's a bonus for both!
