BLOG: Snow makes Christmas pure

CHICKASHA — Although this may seem somewhat juvenile and trivial, I have to take a moment to comment on the stupendous white Christmas I experienced yesterday.

As many of our regular readers know, I come from Texas, where snow is close to non-existent, so one can only imagine my surprise when two inches of the white stuff fell across the DFW Metroplex.

It was invigorating. In my almost 27 years I have never experienced a white Christmas until yesterday and it was totally worth the wait.

These sort of simplistic joys are novel to a person like me. It was phenomenal way to celebrate the day with my friends and loved ones. It perfectly augmented an already wonderful holiday. Nothing beats perfect simplicity and that is exactly what yesterday was for me, perfectly simplistic.

I can only hope that 2013 will be filled with equally pure and simplistic pleasures.
