As the final hours of Christmas slip away, I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
“I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” is an iconic Christmas song and it echoes my personal mantra,
“There should always be snow for Christmas.”
But we had no snow for Christmas. Actually, when I was outside yesterday I saw flowers peeking their heads through the soil. That is not supposed to happen in winter!
Well, I slept over at my parent’s house last night and got up this morning so I could get a short ride in before everyone else woke up.
My ride had one objective: to find snow for Christmas.
I had heard rumors that snow still existed to the Southwest, so I headed in that direction, hoping to find a few patches of white.
And guess what? I did. I found snow. Real live snow. It wasn’t much and it wasn’t pretty, but I was happy anyway. Mission accomplished, we were going to have a white Christmas after all.
I filled my pannier with snowballs and a mini snowman before returning to my parent’s house.
Once home, I woke up my brothers by throwing snowballs at them while singing “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”. I am such a mature older sister!
I had a wonderful day with my family. We opened presents, ate lots of food and most importantly celebrated that Jesus was born.
That’s even more important than having a white Christmas.
