1. You hope for snow, but you’re realistic.
In my three decades of memories of Christmases in Texas, I can remember only 1-2 snowfalls on the day itself. It’s probably for the best, honestly; the state practically shuts down with as little as one inch of ice on the highways, and the equipment just isn’t there to clear it quickly. We may not be Australians, celebrating the holidays in their shorts with a BBQ in the backyard, but some years it’s pretty close. You can’t help but laugh at everyone in New York City trapped under ten feet of snow.
