Christmas weather, does it affect your mood? (1 Viewer)

It is going to be 73 degrees here Christmas day which, IMHO, just blows. We've had warm weather here in the past for the big day and for me, it just makes it totally impossible to get in the proper spirit when I'm running around in shorts. As someone raised in the NE, nothing beats getting up Christmas morn' to a lovely white blanket covering the ground. Does the weather affect anyone else's ability to truly enjoy the day, or am I just weird?

Totally knowing what you're going through. A CT transplant to the desert in CA. 74 degrees just sucks for Christmas miracles.  

 
40 degrees and rain makes me irritated no matter if it's Christmas or not.  But it could be worse.  I could be living east of here right now.  Or trying to fly somewhere.

Yeah it is similar here in Detroit. Just gray and blah. I would much prefer 30 and some light snow or 60 and sun. Regardless, I am in the Christmas mood 10/10

 
Christmas has nothing to do with the weather. For instance Santa was ready to cancel Christmas,  but he worked around the problem with a certain glow nosed employee. 

 
I guess growing up in the NE, my phsycie(sp?) will forever link Christmas to cold and snow. I suppose it's just another sign that getting old sucks.

Was driving along the Ohio Turnpike today (Left DC for The Frozen Tundra) PA was worse rain-wise, but it has gotten colder as we have gone west. Stopped in South Bend, and it was snowing a bit, no-accumulation.

I grew up near Boston, and I too, remember white Christmases. Now living in DC, we often do not have snow on Christmas. That is one thing I have enjoyed about going to visit my in-laws, even though it has been hard as a Bears fan!! Will be more fun this year for that!!! :pickle:

 
Like Da Guru has said it's the time of sunset that effects me way more. Being in the North East and right on the coast the sun sets almost an hour earlier than the western most states in the EST zone, which sucks in both summer and winter. Sunset was 4:33 pm today, that's depressing. I'd much rather be on DST all year round, who cares about daylight on your drive in, once at work you're inside. I'd rather have it on the way home and for an extra hour after that.

 
I see snow once every few YEARS. I know wishing for snow would be a waste of time. But c'mon, 73 degreees?
Sounds like you have the holiday blues, man. I just recorded Sesame Street and Charlie Brown XMas's from vinyl to CD. Listen to 'em both. Listen to any Christmas record. That'll get you in the mood.  

Best wishes, GB.

I've been on blood thinners for 6.5 years; I'd love a 70 degree Christmas Day in NW PA.

Watched Charlie Brown, Rudolph, Frosty and Miracle on 34th St so far Did some wrapping today. Have a three hour Youtube Christmas Music with holiday backgrounds set up ready to go. Just not feeling it. Maybe once the kids and grandkids show up. I'm sure no longer have small kids at home plays a part too. Christmas just ain't much of a thing with it just being the wife and I in the house. The weather may just be the clincher.

Once the kids show up you'll get into the spirit, GB. I can relate. I've seen the kids' energy raise spirits. They can do as much for us as we do for them.
