It rained on Christmas Eve (Heiligabend here in Germany).
“Well,” we said, “a white Christmas would have been nice.”
And then the temperature dropped, the rain turned to snow, and the snow stuck.
I haven’t seen snow, real falling snow, in a really long time and I laughed. Outside, I threw my head back and tasted.
It snowed on the way home, late.
I took off a glove, touched the flakes on a bush, tasted.
And there was still snow on Christmas Day (Weihnachten here in Germany).
So I put on my new boots and went outside to play.
