White Christmas

Do you know what a white christmas is? A white Christmas is a Christmas with the presence of snow, either on Christmas Eve or on Christmas Day, depending on local tradition. This phenomenon is most common in the northern countries of the Northern Hemisphere. Because December is at the beginning of the Southern Hemisphere summer, white Christmases there are extremely rare, except in Antarctica (uninhabited), in the Southern Alps of New Zealand’s South Island, and in parts of the Andes in South America as well as the southern tip of the continent, in places like Ushuaia, Argentina.

The notion of “white Christmas” was popularized by writings of Charles Dickens. The depiction of snow-covered Christmas season found in The Pickwick Papers (1836), A Christmas Carol (1843), and his short stories was apparently influenced by memories of his childhood, which coincided with the coldest decade in England in more than a century.

The song, “White Christmas”, written by Irving Berlin and sung by Bing Crosby (with the Ken Darby singers and John Scott Trotter and his orchestra) and featured in the 1942 Paramount Pictures film Holiday Inn, is the best-selling single of all time and speaks nostalgically of a traditional white Christmas and has since become a seasonal standard.

People have endowed white Christmas with many romantic colors and left a lot of beautiful legends about white Christmas. Do you want to create a romantic white Christmas for yourself? You don’t need to look forward to the weather anymore, you only need a snow falling machine, and it will no longer be a dream to create your own “white Christmas”!
