Apart from the presents and the booze, the one thing most people get excited about in the lead up to December 25 is the prospect of a white Christmas.
Unfortunately it's quite rare that we wake up in Ireland to a blanket of snow in our gardens on the big day. So what are the chances for 2017? Pretty good if we're to believe willigetawhitechristmas.com (and why wouldn't we?).
Upon visiting the site and typing in 'Dublin' we found that we have 25% chance of making snow angels before tucking into our turkey.
Now, it is a bit early to know for sure but we like those odds. Let's keep our fingers crossed over the next couple of months!
