Christmas is traditionally thought of as snow-covered, cold time of year, but here in Texas, it is not uncommon to have a 70-degree day. Because of this, Christmas is a little bit different in the Lone Star State. Here are three Texas Christmas traditions we all celebrate.
Cutting Down A Tree
Here in Texas, we love the outdoors, and cutting down the perfect Christmas tree is something many of us love to do. Thanks to our warm weather, we don’t have to do this while wearing down-filled coats and thick winter gloves.
Yes, everybody celebrates the season with bright, twinkling lights, but where else can you see cactuses covered in lights, Big Tex replicas in your neighbor’s yard, or armadillos wrapped in lights.
Fake It ‘Til You Make It
It may be as delightful as a warm spring day, but we like to enjoy winter activities, too. That is why you will find snow machines in the mall, poinsettias everywhere, and people will still enjoy a cup of hot cocoa even if it makes them sweat.
