People have been dreaming of it only since 1942. That’s when Bing Crosby told us all about white Christmases — things we only used to know — in the movie Holiday Inn. We were immediately hooked on the nostalgia, romance, and charm of Christmas covered in snow and ever since then have been looking anxiously at the skies (and the weather reports) every mid-December, hoping to see the clouds that promise to bring us that magical Christmas snow.
Well, that’s all very nice, but look what we got this Christmas! The snow was leftover, gray, and slushy, but oh, that glorious sky!
