A White Christmas…..really?

A white Christmas will not be a reality in this part of Ontario for 2015. Last week my friend Christine and I decided to get our Christmas fix watching “White Christmas” starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye and Rosemary Clooney. Cups of coffee were brewed and we pulled up the the reclining seats on the sofa to settle in and enjoy. It may be the only white Christmas we experience this year.

Some Christmas movies are classics and can be watched over and over without losing their magic. Holiday Inn, Christmas Vacation and One Magic Christmas to name a few are repeatedly shown on television this time of year. One Magic Christmas is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and holds special interest for our family. Our son-in-law; as a teenager  was an extra in it and he will gladly autograph a copy for anyone who asks.

Along with the classics a long list of romantic Christmas movies pop up nightly. They are predicable but fun to sit back and watch and are a welcome replacement to re-runs and reality shows. Soon we will be past Christmas and move into another new year. The Christmas movies will be stored away until another twelve months passes.

For all the people who are delirious about the mild weather I say ‘bah humbug’. A little dusting of snow for Christmas will brighten the day. Not only is the snow cheerful but necessary for many plants to survive the winter weather. A blanket of snow protects the roots and gives them a rest before returning to life in the spring.

So I must accept that a green Christmas is just around the corner but not let it steal any of the joy of the season. Green or white it is still a time to spend with loved ones. May you all enjoy the holiday season.


One thought on “A White Christmas…..really?

  1. It was wonderful watching “White Chistmas” with someone who loves the movie as much as I do. You’re right that the movie might have shown us our white Christmas for this year. 🙂 I will have to look for some of the other movies you mentioned. My family is not big on Christmas movies, so we watch others. Spending time together, whatever you choose, is the most important thing.
