Christmas Eve (3:44 a.m) … and Magic

And Lindsay captures it wonderfully in her photo above and in her post titled “Snow Falling” – while I sit here in darkness, early this morning, watching snow fall on Christmas Eve:

“There is something absolutely magical about snow falling. I am always in awe of the eerie silence that falls around the house as it lightly touches down on our roof and the ground around us. I love how from somewhere it picks up little hints of light so it resembles glitter falling all around you…It was magnificent. It was glorious to be able to lean up against the window and just watch the big flakes fall luxuriously down around us. Something about snow makes me feel like a little kid all over again.”


Inspired by: “—light snow, silence, the empty streets, the fog, thrilling cold—so much beauty. Like breathing pure oxygen.” ~ Susan Sontag, from As Consciousness Is Harnessed to Flesh: Journals and Notebooks 1964-1980

  3. David, you were up very early. We love snow in Minnesota, so much so that we believe the Magi followed a snowflake. 😇Merry Christmas.

  4. Up at 4:55 a.m. to get to the Y and what to my wondering eyes did appear…. a beautiful, silent, glistening covering of snow. It was magical. Happy and Merry Christmas, David.🎄

  7. There is no snow falling here at the foot of the Rockies. Just a Chinook that has blown in from the west, sweeping warm air down from the mountains, across the city.

    And still, silence falls. Calm descends and the wonder and awe of Christmas embraces us all.

    May you and yours be filled with the wonder and awe of this special time of year.

  8. There is a wonderful sense of calm in watching snowfall, especially at night. Our snow is nearly gone and we barely qualify as a White Christmas, alas…
    Merry Christmas to you and your family, David! xoxo

  10. Ah, the magic of snow falling and “sticking”! Just once at Christmas I’d love to be cozy w/ loved ones in a log cabin with a crackling fire..the cabin situated along a river or a lake. another thought arriving a few days before Christmas without snow going to sleep on Christmas Eve to wake up to a magical blanket of snow and hot cocoa and fresh baked cinnamon rolls!

      • Ah, parallel dreams…You didn’t mention any thought of my “sticking” statement- it is disappointing when the snow doesn’t stick or it sticks and melts within 1/2 an hour! The grading of snowflakes size & rate of falling in my mind has a correlation to it stickin’ or not and the humidity and temperature and the air aloft. Big, beautiful fluffy oatmeal type flakes always stick! Merry Christmas…We have clean new flannel sheets on the bed I better go to sleep now…
