I registered some Christmas firsts this year:
- First time I've ever known fresh snow on the ground on Christmas Day. This may sound weird to some people, but in 50 years I've never (*) experienced a blanket of fresh snow on the ground, despite living north of N48° during that entire time.
- First time in 15 years, and only the third time that I remember, that any snow has fallen on Christmas Day. It snowed non-stop from 8am on Christmas Eve until midday on Christmas Day. For some reason, it's almost always 10°C/50°F at Christmas where I am.
- First Christmas when I cooked the festive lunch in my kilt.
- First time in my life that I made a snow angel. In my kilt, of course.
