To me, snowing around Christmas has absolute magical and enchanting effects on the psyches of many people who live in the east coast. Picture this in your mind: you are elbowing with fellow pedestrians who are carrying tons of shopping bags on crowded streets, hearing the soft crushing sounds beneath your feet on the white powders as you'd rush in and out the stores to do the last-minute shopping and then taking a short break to join the people to admire the incredibly creative holiday lights and seasonal decorations in front of the display windows of major stores and boutiques at the nightfall...
So here is a thing, without the white stuff, the holiday season becomes kind of listless and lame; you could think it as the same way as if you'd watch a great action movie yet the soundtracks and dialog are all muted. Needless to say, the story line and plots become simply flat out if not flavorless.
It looks like this city may have a Christmas without snow in sight based on the weather guys' forecast. Anyway It doesn't matter anymore at this point, I am going to the south - the far south of the planet to spend a Christmas, But I still wish snow will fall during this holiday season when I return.
Do you know the facts ? Not a single snow flake is look alike, in addition, when it lands, it makes a little tiny sound if and only if you'd listen to it carefully. :)
With all my heart, I'd like to take a moment to wish my friends and their families a very merry Christmas and happy New Year!
