BOSTON (CBS) – Are you dreaming of a White Christmas? Like it or not, you have to admit that a little bit of snow around the holidays certainly helps to get you in the spirit.

Last year was one of the more bizarre holiday seasons: we actually had a white Halloween and a brown Christmas! In fact, after the freak Halloween storm, we didn’t have any accumulating snowfall in Boston until mid-January.

But, just two years ago, it was the exact opposite: a snow blitz for the ages began in mid-December and didn’t let up for six straight weeks. It wasn’t just a white Christmas that year, it was a whiteout. By the end of December, 2010 Boston had nearly two feet of snow on the ground.

So, it can be hard to predict. But that is nothing you haven’t heard before when it comes to New England weather.
