I live near Seattle, where it doesn't snow very often. You'd think that being so far north we would get lots of snow, but the warming effect of the Puget Sound takes care of that. When it does snow, it's usually a few inches at most, and it melts very quickly. Which isn't to say that the city doesn't come to a complete standstill. We're built on a hill, people.
According to weather statistics, Seattle has a 0-10% chance of a white Christmas in any given year. I've experienced two in my lifetime, and they were wonderful. The first was in 1990, when my newlywed hubby and I woke up to 6 inches of freshly fallen beauty on Christmas morning.
The second was in 2008, and that was a year for the record books. The snow started falling about a week before Christmas, and before the storms were done we had two feet on the ground at our house.

Wherever you live, and whether or not you have snow, have a very blessed and happy Christmas Eve!
