We might have a green Christmas, which could be upsetting, If you got a new sled and can’t do any sledding. Or you might be a parent, content with the leaves, No ice on the roads or hanging from eaves. However you celebrate, whatever the reason, We here at Frogburps wish you a happy holiday season!

I’m not a fan of Winter. I dislike the cold, the short days, shovelling, icy roads, other drivers, expensive heating bills, and snow!
I like sitting on my porch in the evening until the sun goes down, reading a good book with a cat in my lap. It’ll be months before I can do that again.
I’m a big fan of green Christmas. My wife, on the other hand, loves the cold and the snow, so she has her fingers crossed for a change in the weather. Either way, we’re going to enjoy some time off together over the holiday season, and we hope you do too!
I live in Denmark. We have our share of snow here, but it’s not likely that we’ll have an official “White Christmas“.
To label it as that here in Denmark, 90% of the country needs to be covered in at least 0.5 cm snow on Christmas day. And that has apparently only happened 9 times since the year 1900. But often there will be snow in December and children will scream with glee and run outside to build snowmen, while adults get grumpy and drive like they’re 90 years old.
When that’s how it’s been your whole life, it’s hard to imagine living in a place where snow is rare and the sun will most likely shine at Christmas time. How would that be?
Are you living in such a place? Or are you fighting through masses of snow at this time of year? Tell us in the comments!
