I don't know about every other year cause I have only been there 1, but last year it was really mild. It did get colder a few times even snowed, but for the most part it was upper 40's lower 50's.

Really? In California? Hmmmm. Maybe in LA, I don't know. I am in Northern California. If you wear shorts here in December, you are going to be COLD! There are lot of stupid people here that think summer is in March or April or that its still summer in November. Meaning, people wear shorts here when it rains, with sandals and a hoodie sweater. It would be way too cold for me to do that, I guess if you don't mind be freezing wearing shorts - haha. The summer months here are June to the first week of October or so. Anytime before or after is cold and the rainy season varies from October to May months.

Yeah - I'd find it strange. I struggle in the heat with my pale colouring and red hair. I find it easier to warm up than cool down - so its never appealed to me although we have a lot of friends who do travel to more exotic locations during December.

I was born and raised in Northern Illinois and I loved the snow and ice and the cold. Then I went to California and 60 degree weather was not Christmas like, so I decorated my house anyway, then the neighbors started decorating. But going to the beach was boring. Then I moved to Northeastern Arizona and the weather is chilly (40's ish) maybe with some snow (not likely) but the chill in the air is there. Both have pluses and minus' but I prefer a cold snowy Christmas season.

The Year my son was born we lived in Louisiana,and it was in the 70's & I HATED it!Then,a few years after that we had a white Christmas.I just moved back to Louisiana last month and Im hopin' it'll be cold on christmas day this year.It's not like Louisiana can't get cold but its just not cold enough for someone who was born and raised in Boston,Ma.

Come to Canada! LOL You want a white, snowy, beautiful Christmas it's the place to be. Usually around Christmas time we experience a few feet of snow, so deep that my dog jumped in a snowbank and sunk to the bottom. Don't get me wrong it get's stupid cold like -30 Celsius which is like 20.2 degrees Fahrenheit... but is it ever beautiful to wake up to on Christmas morning, wouldn't trade it for the world

kmchar1 has shown a merry disposition
I lived in Northeastern PA for 27 years of my life. Lots of cold and snow for Christmas. Then I moved to Orlando, Florida and have lived here for 7 years. Typically, it's warm and sunny. It can get chilly at night (in the 30's..in fact, this past winter, it dipped into the teens)..but usually hovers in the 60's and 70's at Christmas during the day.

I don't really think there is much of a difference for me as far as temps go. It's still the same temp INSIDE my house as it is when I lived in PA. So, nothing changes there. OUTSIDE it's different, but there is so much more to see and do related to Christmas than there was in PA. People decorate more here...there are all kinds of Christmas events. For instance: Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, Sea World Christmas, Ice! at Gaylord, Epcot Candlelight Processional, Christmas Around The World at Epcot, Disney Studios Osborne Family Christmas Spectacular, Christmas parades, Christmas festivals, Snow! in Celebration, Fl etc. I could go on and on. Plus, I think people decorate more because of the lack of snow.

Besides, Christmas for me could be anywhere. It's all in my heart. Doesn't matter if it's -20 or 120 degrees outside. I feel it in my heart just the same.

I'd be lying if I said I never missed the snow. But, that's more about winter than it is Christmas. I miss it most in January when all the festivities are over and it's a blah mid-January, ya know? Plus, it gets cold enough here (like I said, in the teens at nights at times) that I wish it would just snow if we have to put up with the cold, too! LOL
