There is usually SOME snow on Mt. San Jacino in Palm Springs in December and January. That is close enough for me to call a "White Christmas". At this time of the year, my east coast friends seem to miss the "pretty white stuff" (though most agree, they don't miss driving icy roads or shoveling it).
I love our winter sunsets. The other night, I glanced outside, then grabbed my camera!
It was even better from the front yard and street!
