A White Christmas is a winter celebration with the cold presence of ice: either on Christmas Day or on Christmas Eve, depending upon local tradition. This occurrence is most prevalent in the northern regions of the Northern Hemisphere, specifically in Europe, North America, and Japan. The first element of a “White Christmas” story is the appearance of icicles in the midst of a Deciduous forest. As a result of this miracle, the name for this wonderment became associated with the idea of pureness, which is often linked with Christmas. A “White Christmas” celebration may take place before, during, or after Christmas, and may involve a variety of activities such as a White Christmas parade down the main street of a town, a visit from Santa Claus (of course! ), fancy dress parties, family visits, gift-giving, and skating rink festivities.
In Canada, the traditional Christmas celebration is also accompanied by the spectacular sight of the Canada Lynx, a lynx-sized cat. The beautiful feline is said to symbolize hope for the festive season and is featured in many Christmas cards, as well as on the Christmas tree. The Alaskan White Christmas, meanwhile, features the snow-covered mountains of Alaska, with its snow-free runways. While many cities in North America and abroad have their own versions of the “White Christmas”, it is believed that the first official celebration of this phenomenon took place in Russia, with participants coming from all over the country.
The “White Christmas” phenomenon is said to have begun due to a change in the weather which was caused by the eruption of Mt. erupting, which released huge amounts of smoke into the atmosphere, along with the lowering of the temperature by several inches. According to popular beliefs, when the temperature was lowered, more of the trees began to die, while the wild animals and snow animals didn’t have any problem adjusting to the new weather. With this new-found habitat, they were able to live without the modern amenities that humans provided, such as houses and lights.
A typical “White Christmas” scene is usually one in which the sun is shining brilliantly on a beautiful landscape, while snow is melting and falling in a heap on the ground. As most of the people are busy gathering outside to enjoy the beautiful scenery, a small village is inaccessible through the snow. This village is populated by elderly people who find it difficult to enter and exit their homes due to the thickness of the snow. Inside, even the heating units are unable to warm the air inside the house and the residents are forced to go outside to catch some sunshine or cook dinner on the open fire. At some point during the evening, the small group of people decides to take a break from their tasks and enjoy the beautiful winter night, when a strange light appears above their heads, accompanied by the sound of an unexpected snowfall.
Today, most of the residents of this village no longer have to rely on candles and firewood for their source of heat and light, since the town has installed a state-of-the-art power plant that powers all its electric devices. A visit to this newly built power station is a must for anyone planning a White Christmas trip to Alaska. In the village itself, there is a gift shop where visitors can buy unique gifts for those coming to enjoy the annual Christmas celebrations. The Christmas concerts and other activities hosted by the village government also help residents and guests enjoy the unique atmosphere of White Christmas.
For those planning a White Christmas tour to Alaska, you will notice that tour operators usually offer packages, which include lodging, tours, and food. You may want to choose a package that offers the lowest percentage chance of inclement weather because weather conditions can greatly affect your White Christmas vacation. Even though it is rare, the yearly rate of this popular tour operator is slightly higher compared to the rates offered by other tour operators during December. If you are willing to take a risk and go out without an umbrella, you may still take a fifty percent chance of having a cold air blast during the entire month of December.
As a matter of fact, November and December can be quite cold in some parts of the United States, especially the lower 48. However, Alaska is one of the countries in the world where the winter months offer the best chance of a white Christmas. Visitors to this beautiful country flock to White Christmas resorts each year to enjoy the long weekend and beautiful snowy weather that come with the season. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a native Alaskan or just visiting for the holidays, it is important to pack properly so you have the best chance of a white Christmas.
