D is for Dashing through the Snow

Tuesday, November 7, 2023

Christmas traditions make the holiday special for families. D is for Dashing through the Snow is the fourth post at a look of Christmas traditions from A to Z that add sparkle, love, laughter, beauty, comfort, nostalgia, meaning, and joy to the Christmas season. 

May this A to Z  list, one letter per post, inspire a new tradition for you! 

is for Dashing through the Snow.

Dreaming of a white Christmas is high on many people's Christmas wish lists regardless of where one lives. And, regardless of age! We dream of dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh, laughing and singing all the way. 

Even a light dusting of snow on Christmas Day is a gift that fulfills our wish lists. White snowflake decorated lanterns provide the dream of snow for those who rarely have snow for Christmas.

But, those who dream of dashing through the snow really want deeper snow on a hillside for flying down the slope on a sled. What a perfect way to spend Christmas afternoon working off extra calories from Christmas roast turkey and all the trimmings. 

White snowflake dessert/salad plates, small white ceramic trees, and navy mugs with snowy white trees capture the snow covered woods under a wintry sky outside a breakfast room window.

May your Christmas be merry and bright... 
with just the right amount of snow.
