Green, Red, and White Christmases

So, we’ve all obviously heard of a White Christmas, and if you grew up in a desert, like me, you know the brown Christmas, but here in Iceland, I’ve discovered that in addition to the preferred White Christmas, there are two other types of Christmases: Red and Green.

Rauð Jól:
a snowless Christmas
(actually what we had last year, apparently)

Græn Jól:
A particularly warm Christmas
(As experienced, to a much more acute degree, by my friends in the Southern hemisphere)

This year, it looks like Iceland is going to get a very, very white Christmas (blizzard).

But at least there’s a bit more light!
