I think this type of snowfall is special for me because it reminds me of Christmases as a little girl--a LONG time ago :-) !!
We didn't decorate much around the house, but we did have a tree with all the trimmings and always a nativity scene set up. Putting the figurines in place was my favorite thing to do--that and placing the "snow" around the 3-sided shelter. This snow glistened in much the same way as the snow falling today.
Christmas snow brings a warm feeling to my inner being, one that could almost be magical! Ah, the three wise men, the Magi bring gifts after following that shiny star.
Another fond memory of snow: It's 6:30 at night. My dad is in the barn finishing up with the milking chores. The all-night-yard-light brightens up the pump hill and the driveway that winds up around to the back of the barn. I get the sled down off the hook in the garage and take it to the top of the pump hill. The snow is packed just right to get enough speed built up to make it back down to the garage. WHOOSH!
The snow and weather outside may be cold, but it sure brings warm memories.
Charlie Brown's Christmas is on--have to go!
Oh, one last thing. If you're reading this from my link on Facebook and you like what you see, would you mind going back to Facebook and do a "Like?" Sure would appreciate it. Comments welcomed, too!
Have a great evening!
