All I want for Christmas is...SNOW!

Seriously, without snow, how can Christmas REALLY feel like Christmas? Without all of that pretty, white, fluffy stuff outside, it's just not the same. You're probably thinking, "Are you crazy? Snow is COLD, and I have to shovel my driveway!", and you're right, but you have to admit, when you look outside Christmas morning to find the ground covered and giant snowflakes falling, it makes the day just that much more magical.

Christmas is my favourite holiday, but not because I get presents. Read Dawn's story here. #GreatestGift
