Getting into the holiday spirit is easier when it’s freezing!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Richard Weisser Realty

The house I grew up in Pennsylvania!Growing up in Western Pennsylvania, the holiday season was frequently punctuated with snow and always accompanied by cold weather.

Here in Newnan Georgia, our winter weather hinges on the wind. When the wind blows from the cold Canadian North, we have typical winter weather. If it blows from the South, we have warm breezes from the Gulf of Mexico

Should the two collide, we have a blizzard!

Tonight, it is just very cold, which seems to make the holiday lights burn a little brighter. After a nice bone-chilling walk around the neighborhood, it’s nice to retire to the family room with a hot drink and bathe in the warmth!

And just maybe I’ll have a second cup.

Richard...my wife and I delivered gifts to elderly shut-ins tonight compliments of Anonymous Santa.  It warms the heart just to see the smiles!   No, I am off to find some Peppermint Schnaupps for my coco!

So true!  Here in New England it's always a cold winter and usually very snowy.  I can't imagine Christmas in a warm climate.  The neighborhood I live in had caroling, with candles going through the streets last night.  It was so nice.

Enjoy your holiday.

We have the same weather "syndrome" with respect to the cold Canadian blasts meeting overhead with the wet southern fronts, thereby producing those memorable wet snow dumps. 

The difference is that we're probably about 3-5 degrees colder and sometimes that's all it takes.

Well, I guess I'm going to get into the spirit this week.  It's supposed to get in the 30's tonight here in Florida.  For us, that's like a deep freeze!

Cooler weather does make the holidays seem more like Christmas - even in Florida. But my favorite adult memory of Christmas is still playing a round of golf with my late father in law. Neither a golfer but the times were fun!

Richard, while cleaning the SNOW from my car today I was thinking the same thing. Not to be a Scrooge I was thinking it would be better on Christmas morning LOL!

Sorry, I can't agree with this. Fl is hit by a real bad cold front and the temperatures are lower than in the last 30 years for this time of the year. It does NOT bring out the holiday spirit, the opposite, we are FROZEN in place and do not want to move.
