I don’t know about you but there is still enough of the child in me that wishes to see a white blanket of snow cover the ground on Christmas morning. Every innocent child knows snow to be the best of winter friends that beautifies all it touches. It not only provides them with the ground for sledging down slopes, and having snowball fights with adults whom they could never hit in the face under non-snowy and more normal circumstances (and get away with), but every time a child looks at a wintry sky, all they see is unassembled snowmen been cascaded from the heavens, with angels emptying jigsaw puzzles of disseminated snowmen begging to be made complete again and to occupy their own special corner of some child's family garden.
My mother used to say when snow falls, nature listens, adults stand to attention and children play. Roll on Christmas and 'Let it snow' is what I say.
Love and peace. Bill xxx
