White Christmas

Last night I decided that it was time to get into the Christmas spirit and watch an old favourite of mine ~ White Christmas. I have lost count of the number of times that I have seen this film, but I remember watching it as a child and dreaming of a white Christmas.

Growing up in the U.K. we never had a proper white Christmas. On rare occasions, there was a light powdering of snow, but nothing significant. Even here in Toronto, we have had two successive green Christmas Days and it seems that the likelihood of having snow at this time is diminishing. This probably has a lot to do with climate change, as our winters generally have been much less severe than even five years ago.

Having said this, we will probably be in for a bad one this year, but hopefully, all our Christmas wishes will come true.
