Probability of a White Christmas!



 
 Christmas season is in full swing!
 
I had to laugh when I came across this because when you have grown up in Florida all your life, this pretty much sums it up. In fact, the State of Florida should be 0%. Where the heck does that 5% come from?? Nevertheless, this Florida girl will hold hope to that 5% or less, ha!
 
Holidays feel and look a little different here in the Sunshine State. Safe to say that 99% of the time you'll find us in flip flops on CHRISTMAS DAY.
 
Traditions are different here. I don't have memories that come with snowy places where you're bundling up to go play out in the snow. We really need no fire place going to keep us warm. And seriously, when it hits 50 degrees here we call that COLD, lol! I don't know anything different.
 
I used to be jealous of those places that get snow and their White Christmas.... And if I'm being honest, I'm kind of still am. A part of me always felt like I was being deprived of those fun memories that can be made. We're the land of palm trees and I'm learning that I live in a wonderful place. (HELLO, Mickey???)  Florida has so much to offer. I don't think I could ever leave a place where basically anywhere in the State of Florida you are within easy access to the coast and the Florida beaches.
 
It's a great place.
 
I think Santa thinks so too :)
 
So chime in. Where are you from? Do you get your White Christmas???

I can't remember many Christmas celebrations that haven't included snow....and I will admit that I would feel a little sad not having it...but as of today we don't have any snow and I am not complaining!! :)

That is a fun map! I'm in MI so it looks like there is a good chance we will have snow. Yay! That is the only time of year I like snow, haha.

I love Christmas in Florida, too!!

Disney at Christmastime more than makes up for the lack of snow, lol.

I love being in Missouri for Christmas Day and having an 11% chance of a White Christmas and then heading to Disney for a 0% chance of snow on New Year's Day. There is something to be said for both!

It snowed for the first time on Christmas day in NOLA in 2004 I believe. That's the only time I remember a white Christmas. I don't think we'll be seeing any snow in Southeast Louisiana this year. :)

I live in North Florida so no snow for me either!! I do wish just once that we could get a white Christmas as well!! :)

BUT like another commenter said, Disney at Christmas time more than makes up for it! :)
