A Christmas Weather Forecast
The following is a Special Weather Statement issued for the Christmas
expected to bring above normal levels of stress in both northern and
southern areas of the country. Shoppers are expected to move into the
region around cities and malls beginning on the Friday after
Thanksgiving. Mild temperatures are expected to rise as the excitement
begins and shoppers rush to look for bargains and gifts for the
Economic slowdown has caused a stagnation of the air around shopping
centers, and prices are expected to be several degrees below the norm
for last year. Experts are hopeful that the unseasonably low prices
will create an atmosphere of spending. Look for especially heavy
activity on the parking lots where severe temper flare-ups have
occurred in past years from high pressure of traffic and shortage of

throughout the holiday season. Many areas have reported localized
heavy ornament displays beginning as early as October of this year.
Except for a few low lying areas, lights and holiday greenery will be
displayed over most of the country, with icicles and snowmen expected

The wind will be blowing out of the north, bringing with it a 50
percent chance of Christmas music. Light snow is possible, but it is
too early for a definite prediction at this time. It is never,

fire in the fireplace and drink eggnog or hot
apple cider to ward off cold winter chills.
Radar indicates that Santa will arrive as expected, making it around
the world in only one night in spite of fog, sleet or snow. Children
may rest assure that no snow is necessary for Santa and his reindeer
to make deliveries to rooftops far and wide. Tots everywhere are
anticipating his coming with flurries of activity, changing into
blizzards of excitement, as Christmas Day gets closer.
Gifts will be wrapped in seasonal holiday paper and ribbon, especially
in mid to late December. Christmas trees are expected to materialize
prior to Christmas Day and have been appearing commercially for a
prolonged period of time throughout the vicinity. A warm front of
Christmas spirit is moving in at 20 M.P.H. and is expected to bring
love, generosity and cheer throughout the area.
Watch for earlier than normal wakeup hours on Christmas Day as
children arise to open their gifts. A possible storm of high calorie
consumption may occur later in the day as a wave of heat and humidity
moves into the dining room where turkey or ham and other Christmas
goodies are being served. Severe overeating should taper off as the
day progresses, turning into milder indulgences by early
Drought may occur shortly after the Christmas season as the warm fuzzy
holiday spirit moves out and a weak cold front moves in preceding the
arrival of the January bills. Be prepared for a freeze as reality sets
in. Chilly weather may continue through February, but the celebration
of Christmas is expected to go on for many seasons to come.
