A question for the Southerners out there

How on earth do you people generate and maintain your holiday spirit when nary a snowflake falls? Today it is 77 and sunny in Colorado. I felt like a C-R-A-Z-Y person over my lunch when I went to drop off movies at bl0ckbuster (3 weeks late....oops) and "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..." was blasting from my stereo.

On a more pleasant side note, the soda machine gave me two beautiful Diet Coke's for the price of one. Score!

Score on the diet coke. And yeah, christmas... I can't even remember a christmas that it rained in Los Angeles, let alone snowed. Although we never seemed to mind playing with new toys outside enjoying yet another 75 degree winter day.

i was thinking the same thing when i was in hawaii and there were christmas decorations up in the drug store (and yes, it was the beginning of november and the stores were fully decorated!).

de-lurking for this one. We southerners watch it snow on tv! heehee.

And then we go walk on the beach and think of people shoveling snow and swoon at our good fortune.

Christmas tunes abound here also and we are totally gettin' the Christmas thing too!

it is a little different not having cold snowy weather for christmas. We didn't always have snow in Spokane but at least it was cold out.

Visit the snow ... if you live close enough.

I just pretend & this year I am pretending early & I don't care what anyone says. I love this time of year & I am taking advantage of it even if people are still wearing shorts outside.

It snows here, just later in the year. Add 2 - 3 months to the time of your first snow and that's when it snows here. As a matter of fact, it snowed Thursday, just not a lot. More like flurries.

When I lived in Lubbock it would snow in October, but it would be 80 three days later.

It's a mixed blessing. I think it makes you focus on the season a little more and not so much the surroundings.
