Xmas North vs. Xmas South

Christmas in the North is pretty different than Christmas back home in Carolina, and it has nothing to do with the war between the states.

Here’s a partial list of my favorites from both!

Christmas North:

Ice Skating in Rockefeller Center

Fallen leaves in the East Village
That burning smell when someone’s using her fireplace for the first time MONTHS
Hot chocolate
Goodbye swimsuits, HELLO dessert!
Fluffy sweaters, tight leggings and knee-high boots – my favorite fashion combo!

Cuddling just because it’s cold
Dogs in sweaters!

Christmas South:

HUGE Christmas trees for sale on the side of the road
Christmas music on the radio
Parades down the middle of Main Street in downtown Burlington

Christmas parties with old girlfriends from Salem
My Aunt Elsie’s chocolate chip cookies
Kids building snowmen in their yards
Sledding down the big hill in front of my Granny Blanche’s house
Candlelit vigils at my hometown church on Christmas Eve

What are some of YOUR favorite Xmas activities – North or South?

The Harbin Heilongjiang Ice Festival in 东北中国。 这是非常 un-fucking-believable and it kicks the bollucks of 任何地方在美国或东南.
