Wishing for a White Christmas

This year I’m actually looking forward to snowy weather, even though it’s looking like we might not be getting any for December (although I swear I can smell snow in the air right now, even though the weather forecast says it’s not happening).  We’ll see who’s better in predicting the weather, eh? (My bet’s on the forecast, just fyi)

I’ve never really been a fan of snow, or the cold in any shape, way or form. Heat has always been more my thing, and living in a tropical climate would definitely be an endgoal, provided I can pick up the entirety of the Netherlands and just move it there (cause I wouldn’t wanna live anywhere else).

But in the right circumstances, I do very much appreciate the snow. And this year it looks like those circumstances might definitely be met. Huzzah!

Because in order to enjoy the snow:
* I have to be inside OR only outside to enjoy exactly that (just for the snow, not to actually get anywhere).
* The temperature inside has to be toasty toasty (preferably with a fireplace).
* I have to be somewhere where it’s quiet enough to enjoy the extra padded cushiony silence that snow brings along with it.
* I want to be somewhere with snowman-making potential.
* It needs to be somewhere without a risk of getting snowballed in the face, or annoying kids or people shoveling the sidewalk, turning it into iced over slippery slopes.
* It has to be somewhere where the snow can remain undisturbed and white instead of a grayish disgusting sludge-slushie.

Because the thing is: with a new press-conference looming over our heads at 7 tonight, in which we’re assuming we’re going to get a brand spanking new set of lockdown-measures that are further going to tie down any attempts at a social life outside the house – it looks like this will be a winter that is going to check all those snow-checkboxes.

With nowhere to go, no one to see and no one with any business outside of the house – the snow this year will actually get to weave it’s magic. Coating the world in a fluffy white blanket. Covering up the harsh edges and hiding all the darkness underneath. We’ll have a chance to see the world anew in that way that only snow seems to offer us, and I, for one, am very happy about that!

(Not for the lockdown, obviously, but hey, at least the world will look pretty from our windows.)

Bring on the snow!

  1. Haha! I’m in the Southern US, North Carolina, to be exact. Every year, we get snow. But, we’ve not had a significant snowfall since 2018, where in one day, we received 14 inches. I am really hoping we get several significant snowfalls throughout this coming Winter. I hope you get the kind of snow you want too. Lol.

  2. I’d invite you over if there wasn’t coronavirus, the kids (a box that certainly wouldn’t be checked on your list) and the small matter of the largish pond between us. We usually get vast amounts of the white stuff. Not yet, although we’ve had a white day or three. Nothing sticking though (strange, but follows recent annual trends).

    Unfortunately, I expect you’d look at the snow, feel the cold, turn around and get back on the plane.

  4. I hope you get the snow you are wishing for. Do you have a fire place where you live? There’s something so dreamy about cosying up to a fire when it’s snowing outside. Not that we ever get that in the UK, despite what our Christmas cards may depict! x

    1. I am sadly entirely fireplace-less 😦
      Although I have been pondering to get one of those mobile electric ones as a christmas gift to myself. But it’s that or a Nintendo Switch…choices choices!

  5. I am in Ontario, Canada, no snow yet ! We have had nice weather. I am not a fan of snow but I make myself enjoy it lol. We have snowshoes and cross country skies and I do love a nice campfire in the winter while drinking my beer or wine. 🙂

  6. I am enjoying my green grass right now, the snow is on the sides of the valley. My neighbour went snowshoeing yesterday and soon I will also. She had to drive a half hour to some nice snowy trails, I will wait because usually by the end of December the snow on the valley sides is much more. I love to snowshoe when I only drive ten minutes, then I go and enjoy and back home quickly to warm up!

    1. Uhm – well I am in IT, sure 😆
      But I don’t see how that would make me want to consider an article like that 🤣 Not my area of expertise nor something I know enough about to feel a need to share on the topic – I am not very adequate in attracting such folk myself at all, with or without social media so I wouldn’t want to go around writing about it 😋🤭
