Christmas in California is Kinda Lame

    Being from Michigan, one awesome thing about all the snow that people tend to forget is the SILENCE. The snow just kinda muffles everything and there’s never many people outside in the winter, so it really can feel somewhat mystical at times.

      Try not to jinx it, but winter in Michigan is nuts, lasting even through the very first month for New Year's Day and during Spring and starts snowing right before Thanksgiving even begins, and of course, it's not usually slip, fall, and fracture a bone season, saying that from my experience with ice being literally everywhere, and it's normally shovel a path to avoid getting your socks freezing cold and wet season.

    From Canada here and can confirm winter is still fun even with driving (especially with drifting around a quiet neighbourhood corner) and having to scrape my car the only thing that ive always hated about winter is the constant shovelling. as another note i live near the mountains so the hills are steep for tobogganing and I am still shocked i never broke a bone or my face going off icy ramps at the bottom of one of those hills.

      @mehmet gurdal You see, Hungary is isolated from the cold north winds by the Carpathians, so they don't have a lot of snow. Even with that, the amount of snow in Europe is overestimated. I live north-east of Hungary(on the opposite side of the Carpathians) and we get the winds from Finland... sometimes. Without the cold winds there is no snow at all.

    I used to live in Alaska, and that is where I had all of my childhood christmases. And they were all so epic!

But then my family moved to Florida, so I get you girl

    Ah, winter, the season that takes up half the year yet still manages to hail during spring. Also the only I actively prefer going outdoors seeing the glistening snow and the sharp needles of air. I especially love it when it's high winds as well, the times where you can't see what's ahead really puts your memory to the test in the woods. But my favorite thing, simply sitting on my stairs at night just observing nature and relishing the fact I never use coats but instead the protection of shorts, sandals and a tank top

  • JG124

    I live in northern California, near SF, and I actually really like the winters here. I know the weather isn't exactly the same here as it is down in socal, but we still never get snow here either. And that never really bothered me. It still gets cold enough up here to the point where I can enjoy wrapping myself up in a couple blankets with some hot coco, but not so cold that I feel like my toes are gonna freeze off every morning. I really like rainy, cloudy, and foggy days (especially rainy ones). To me it feels just as peaceful and tranquil as you describe snow being. And you don't have to worry about all the downsides you mentioned towards the end of the video. Like having to drive on frozen roads and what not. Honestly winter here kinda takes on all the qualities that people in colder states like about the fall, except just a tiny bit colder. Which is really nice, considering fall here usually just consists of the entire state catching fire.

    I’ll admit, in Kentucky, it barely snows in the winter. And when it does, it’s always too little or too much. For almost my whole life, I have never experienced having a White Christmas, and me and my brother are always hoping for one, because it seems to make the day feel that much more cozy and relaxing.

    Yeah; I used to live in NY myself, and I used to have that feeling of wonder during the winter when I was a kid... But then I was tasked with shoveling the drive way, and that killed the wonder for me. Shoveling the drive way was bad enough (especially after heavy snowfalls), but then, just after I finished shoveling the drive way...the snow plow came through. I'm sure plenty of people who have dealt with winter before know exactly what I am talking about. It is the worst when the plow comes through; since the slushy snow from the road gets pushed right into the end of the driveway. And then; as if that wasn't bad enough; the watery slush hardens shortly after into icy snow. This snow is often called heart attack snow, and you can imagine why. Yeah; it's such a pain when that happens, but that snow has to be shoveled. I just don't want to have to be one of those who has to do the shoveling, and so I moved out of NY down south to a warmer state.
    I'm glad you got out of NY to someplace warmer before the magical feeling of winter was taken from you by adulthood.

    growing up without snow, i found that i found the comfort of the holidays and festive times whenever it was freezing cold. like right now! the nights would come much quicker and since i live on top of a hill, fog is pretty common around this time and i LOVE it. i love seeing the fog outside and the christmas lights of my neighbors. there is no wind, but its really cold, and sometimes the moon shines through the fog and clouds and its beautiful. the air also seems very misty and humid, like a huge cloud passing through me. its very cold when that happens when i open a window and just stand right next to it, but i love it. i wish i could experience snow for the holidays, but, i dont think anything could ever replace what i have right now

    But I’ve only experienced snow maybe 3 times or 4 in my whole life and I can’t help but wish it could come here if only just for Christmas Day 😭
    But I’ve found ways to see the beauty of the holiday here by making the most from it! I even made my own sand snowman, his name was Sandy! I gave him a coconut nose, rocks for buttons, and tiny twigs for eyebrows and arms❤️💚 (even if it’s about to be summer already merry early Christmas Emily take care and big hugs)

    As someone who has lived in California for their entire life. I was always mesmerized by all the trees with their beautiful lights in the night seriously if you haven’t seen Christmas lights at night they’re beautiful but seeing all the trees in a nice order while driving by is really nice to see. And I have seen and experienced snow and yes it is fun i still prefer Christmas in California in my opinion. Also my favorite Christmas song that I like because I just makes sense for Christmas In California is the Swinter song from Phines and Ferb and basically in the episode it’s from they make it snow in summer so they get all the good from summer and winter and that’s kind of what I get honestly because I don’t have to deal with slipping on ice but it’s cold enough to bust out the hot chocolate and blankets and I can still do stuff like normal like I could still go to stores without any snow in the way so no need for snow tires but hey that’s just my 2 cents merry Christmas to anyone reading this at Christmas and have a happy new year

    I feel like I've experience something very similar with associating winter with holidays and enjoying the snow.
    But now that I've moved more south, it's never been the same

    Imagine having California summer and Christmas at the same time! Now that would be completely different.

    I grew up in Southern California, and my birthday is close to Christmas (it's coming up soon). Although it is in December, my favorite holiday is not Christmas (it's Thanksgiving). And my favorite season is not winter, it's fall. I never experienced snow, but heard it from relatives in Michigan. Actually, the only snow I've ever felt and walked in was in the mountains. It has snowed once or twice at home, but melted by noon. What characterized winter instead was rain. It just rained all day yesterday, and as you have memories of playing in the snow, I have memories of playing blind man's bluff and twister in the classroom while the rain poured outside. We always loved the rain because normally we had to play outside, but this was different.
    My sister in law moved here a about a year and a half ago, and she does not regret it at all. She hated all those things you mentioned that you have to deal with as an adult. On top of that, she has asthma, so the cold weather makes it a lot worse.
    I personally do not like being cold and do not like wearing pants (I only wear them if my sister forces them on me), so I had an urge to defend California. But I can't argue that much, since I've never been to Michigan in winter, so I've never experienced the snow that way before. My mom wasn't very close to her family there, so I've only been there twice before.
    Another thing that I loved and still love, is the same thing. Presents. My mom had a specific way of putting up the tree and wrapping presents. She wasn't very good at wrapping them, and after all my siblings had jobs, we exchanged names. She was sick of getting everyone presents! I have very fond memories of Christmas time, if you couldn't tell. Now that mom's gone-she died less than 4 months ago, it's been painful. I still remember being outside her door to see if she was wrapping presents. I still remember her setting up the tree with us.
    I love you, mom.

    It is so cute when Emirichu talks about how bad she is at wrapping presents, and shows the presents and the only difference I can see is a lack of bows. That and the wrapping paper she chose is all shiny.
    As for the magical experience of a snowy winter evening, I would like to say Emirichu's parents probably have a point. Wouldn't want you to get frostbite or hypothermia. I've heard the latter makes you feel sleepy.
    Still good video.

    The age is a factor, but what I find that makes me nostalgic about living in snow and ice for six months of the year (shudder) is being around people who know the joys and horrors of living with that kind of weather. How do you share the humor of Christmas Story, with the tongue frozen to the pole scene, when everyone around you thinks it is the same as a deep frozen popsicle? I was older when I moved away from the lands of ice, but I do miss the pure silence a frozen landscape can bring on Christmas. Never moving back, but I still think about it every year!

    The silence when snow falls is the most ominously beautiful sound ever. It's like, even though you like in a city and there are cars, and dogs, and people, the snow just stops all that noise. When I was in high school and just out graduated, I took long walks to get out of the house for a while. In the winter, I remember walking down the street when it would snow and there'd be no one out. Just me, no cars, no other walkers, just me and whatever I was listening to on my phone. I remember how the silence and that cold stillness was just so comforting, somehow. I remember I'd had some particularly bad times in that part of my life and I'd take a walk to just cry it all out. I remember that, even though it wouldn't freeze, all the tears I cried out got so cold that it was like an icy brand on my cheeks and I'd come back with rosy cheeks and frostbitten streaks under my eyes. Honestly, I miss that. This year, winter was about 50-75 degrees in KS and it just didn't feel like winter. And now that Christmas is over, NOW ITS DECIDED TO GET SNOWY OKAY.

    I can relate to this. I grew up in the Tundra land of Minnesota but I moved to Oregon later in my adult life. PNW is a good mix of both. It's nice to not have snow, but Christmas really does feel different without that snow and the plethora of xmas lights on houses. But it's nice not shoveling snow all the flipping time. That sucked.

      Lol, it’s very hot during winter in southern CA, northern CA, is much colder, but no snow, only in the Sierra Nevada is cold and snows, CA has all sorts of weathers, mostly 40-50-ish in northern CA, sometimes 30(rare) :) but summer is very hot, and fire in 2020 literally made sky turn orange
      Edit: I don’t live there but I visit a lot, and I was there when orange sky, (it’s in Fahrenheit, not Celsius, sorry) (pls convert it) (EMILY MOVED TO JAPAN, I love visiting Japan!)
