The 12 Blogging Questions Of Christmas – Day 10 – Are You Having A White Christmas?

Happy Christmas from snowy Northern Ireland!!!

Except it’s not snowing. In fact, it’s not even cold. Rather, it’s unseasonably mild. 12 degrees centigrade no less. It’s grey and drizzly naturally, but there will be no sleigh rides or snowball fights here this year. The coldest thing I’ve experienced has been the four litre tub of honeycomb ice cream dived into following Christmas dinner. Yes, you read that right. Four litres. I’m hardcore when it comes to my ice cream.

So as I sit here, slipping in and out of a self enforced food coma, I’m left wondering what’s the weather like where you are? Is it a Christmas card scene with seven foot snowdrifts and conifers heavily laden with the white stuff? Or does it just look like any other day? Are you on the beach? On top of a mountain? In a cave? Wherever you are, I hope you are having a great day.

What’s the weather like on Christmas Day where you are?

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

            1. Yes. Mostly clothes. Adam got me an umbrella and Wellington boots for when I watch him play rugby. Hannah got me a belt and Rebecca a picture frame. Fionnuala got me lots of nice stuff, including a beanie hat you can play music from when I run. You?

              1. I got money for a guitar from one set of grandparents, one aunt and uncle, and my parents. My parents also got me pjs, a set of clothes, and lots of small stuff in my stocking like chocolate, macadamia nuts, and a coloring book. My brothers gave me turquoise earrings. My other aunt gave me perfume, and my other grandparents gave me a blanket and more chocolate and a bathroom scale (because I was sick of borrowing my parents one lol!)


  1. Merry Christmas from smack-dab in the middle of the USA… the Kansas City area. It is just about exactly the same temperature as yours except that it is sunny and bright. A perfect day to walk the dog and play with the grandkids.

  2. In my little corner of British Columbia, Canada, it is currently about 2 degrees Celsius. There’s some snow on the local ski hills, but everything is still green here in the valley.

  3. Beautiful, sunny, crisp and clear here in New Jersey. It got up to about 35 degrees Fahrenheit or 1.6 degress Celcius (thank you Google!!) Hope you all have a blessed and wonderful Christmas. Much love here from the US of A!

  4. A light jacket and a walk in the woods. Rather nice, but felt more like autumn than winter. We had some heavy snow over here in Durham NC a few weeks ago, but the last of it melted away last week. Merry Christmas!

    (Oh, and wow were the woods full of people who needed to get away from the relatives for a while. Tis the season.)

  5. Santa Cruz, CA. A typical winter day, getting up to about 18.3°C but now down to 4.1°C. We had a little rain last night, keeping us pretty much on a normal season-to-date rainfall. We may avoid both droughts and floods this year, but it is too soon to tell—January and February usually give us most of our annual rainfall.

    I went for a short 1.5km run mid-day, and the weather was quite nice for it. I also walked down to the only open grocery store and bought a backpack full of goodies (sparkling apple cider, avocados, bell pepper, baked tofu, and ice cream—but only 473mL not 4L).


  6. We had snow on the ground and minus 4 overnight but, after 3 days of grey skies and rain, the snow was pretty yucky. On the plus side, the sun shone, as it is again today… (though it’s still very cooooold!) Hope you all had a great day yesterday.


  7. They won’t be taking Christmas card pictures here in North Texas. It’s in the mid-sixties and overcast. The nasty stuff hits tonight. There’s some apprehension as we had devastating tornados on this day three years ago and the forecast calls for possible severe storms. Such weather has been extremely rare but it is becoming the new normal…


  8. Love the pic! White Christmas is a classic:) In Minnesota, we should have several inches of snow and ice. Instead, we have gray skies and brown grass with winds. Boring. On the upside, the snow is on the way and we should have 4+ inches before tomorrow morning. Better late than never! 🙂


  9. It finally decided to snow here in Wyoming on Christmas lol, unfortunately, it was after I was already an hour into my 4-hour drive home from my parents’ house 🙂 Still nothing beats a magical White Christmas!!!
