Ever since I was a child, I have believed that a white Christmas means that it must be snowing on Christmas Day. In fact, simply snowing is not enough. My childhood definition, which has carried over into my middle age, is that it must be snowing on the morning of Christmas Day. Having snow on the ground already does not constitute a white Christmas. A little bit of on-line research proves my definition too stringent. Chances are there won’t be a white Christmas where I will be two days from now, regardless of what definition I use.
