Thanks Kelli...funny how we assume everybody has the same associations with Christmas as we do. I love all your ideas, and if I were not stuck in a state where the weather can change in a heartbeat, I could easily enjoy all that you mention. Of course I love our quirky weather because it usually is not boring, and i will also happily accept my memories and traditions, but it is fun to see it from another perspective..

Thank you for another great article.

I really enjoyed this. I have celebrated Christmas in a warm climate for many years now and would never go back to snow; I love the way it looks in pictures though!!

Thanks. I think there is a good lesson in this: enjoy whatever you have. Obviously, you do.

I remember, when I was a young child in Wisconsin, my mother praying for snow for a "white" Christmas, then when it started, praying for it to stop so whoever was driving could make it to our family Christmas get-together. When I was 10 and we moved to Sunnyvale, CA, then to Santa Barbara my Dad vowed to never see snow again and that included taking us to the mountains!! He barbequed our first CA turkey! They now live in Dallas, so snow is unlikely, but not impossible. I'm inland in So CA and 4 years ago we had snow the Sun before Thanksgiving - at least until about 3PM. DH from Las Cruces, NM said he would like to live somewhere "with 4 seasons", but starts to complain of cold when its 50. LOL. We have seasons, as Kelli alluded to - Rainy, Fire, Santa Ana winds, Very hot (May to Nov this year). Several of these overlap!

Kelli, I grew up in So Cal and lived on the CA Central Coast for 30 years--now for the past three years I have lived in much more snowy New England. Your comments about how the holidays have meaning no matter WHAT the climate really ring true with me.
