Who is having a White Christmas tomorrow (or today, depending on which longitude you're on)?

How rare/common is this in your part of the world?

Where is your part of the world?

Plans for tomorrow?

Obligatory question for those who don't do Christmas/snow/plans: What's your favorite daytime show? (One that airs during the week - soap operas, game shows, etc...) I just caught The Price is Right for the first time in months, and hel-lo male model!

Answering my own question because I'm a dork I have my reasons:

I live in Oklahoma, where there's a 5% chance on any given year of snow on Christmas. It's supposed to start snowing at midnight. (Three years ago, we had a blizzard, so this is interesting given the odds.)

I'm in North Texas with the same issue. I wouldn't be worried if I didn't have to drive to Ft. Worth tomorrow.

I'm in Enid, so it's a matter of how much we get. Anywhere between two and eight inches - still not as bad as three years ago.

As long as we don't have a city-wide power outage for days like in 2007. That was a nightmare D:

Volunteering and probably Chinese food. We're not expecting snow, but I moved to the East Coast this year, so at least it's seasonally chilly.

I'm kind of a sucker for cooking shows. And CSPAN.

We're having Chinese food today! Also, cooking shows somehow mesmerize me once I catch a bit I have to watch the whole thing.

1) I think we're supposed to get rain but not snow

2) Although it usually snows a few times during the winter, we usually don't have a white Christmas in NYC -- it's still too warm for the snow to stick.

3) NYC

4) Going to see Les Mis with a fellow Jewish friend, thus keeping alive the not-really-a-stereotype about movies and Chinese food on Christmas for our people.

5) Hmm. Usually I just watch L&O reruns. They're always on somewhere.

Probably not. It's cold enough for snow, but it's pretty dry right now, so it's shaping up to be more of a grey Christmas.

I live in Michigan. We always used to have white Christmases, but the past few years we haven't had much snow till January.

Nothing. Tomorrow is for laying about and doing absolutely nothing.

I am not and it's uncommon for this time in Colorado...or at least it was when it started happening 5 years ago.
I am going to my dad's to spend Christmas with him and my brothers, we will be eating delicious enchiladas.
I used to like watching the SVU reruns that were on before Let's Make A Deal with Wayne Brady (I forgot which show used to be after it) guilty morning tv pleasure used to be Yes, Dear but I haven't watched live tv in quite some time so Idk.

Two years ago, we got snow the day after Christmas and then in early January. We all got sick of it because the ice was really horrible, especially black ice (I fell on my ass going to the car and I was watching the ground as I walked). My best friend and I made snowmen and watched people drive down the hill by her house. Before that, we hadn't had snow that suck in probably six years.

I doubt we'll get any snow this year. </p>

I live near Ft Bragg in North Carolina.

Tomorrow we're just opening presents, hanging out, and eating bacon and eggs.

Yes! The snow finally came like 2 days ago.

It's very common where I live, the past two Christmases or so there hasn't been any snow and it was bizarre.

Buffalo, NY.

Going to my aunt's house for Christmas dinner and exchanging presents with everyone there.

No white Christmas for me :(

I'm not sure how common there being snow on Christmas proper is, but growing up I could ALWAYS count that if we hadn't seen substantial snow by my birthday (Dec. 13th) then it would always snow on my birthday itself. About a week ago we got 3/10" of snow (damn you Draco, passing us by) which broke a 300 day snow-free streak. You could barely see it through the grass :( Last year it snowed twice, once in January and once in February. The year before that was Snowocalypse.

Chicago

Wake up early to open gifts with my husband before mass, ham lunch with my husband's dad and siblings, ham dinner with my dad, stepmom, and sister.

idk since I'm still relatively new to this part of the world. My guess is not common.
Currently in Canada.
Open presents I don't want/deserve, chill, hopefully talk to my mum on webcam.

I'm having a warm and sunny Christmas; it's 57°F right now. It snows sometimes in the lower elevations of the Sonoran Desert, but only like once every ten years. I've only seen it snow on the mountains.

Highly doubtful.

Not common at all. I'm new to Austin TX but last year it only snowed for a couple hours, and didn't stick.

Going to brunch with my friend and her family, then later in the evening seeing friends and playing board games, and then going to another friend's place for food and hopefully more games.

we're supposed to, and it makes me very happy!

Sadly, no White Christmas here
I think it would freak everyone out. I think if everything would be closed/shut down because of the weather...roads are already bad enough here, so I think the snow would cause a lot of accidents.
Hawaii (Oahu)
Celebrating Christmas! Then we're having two friends who can't be with their families come over for Christmas dinner.

We're supposed to, though only about an inch. The "big" storm is supposed to be hitting us on Thursday, IIRC.

It's fairly common here, from what I've been told. (It's my first full winter here)

Massachusetts

Sleep in as late as my children will let me, play EverQuest2 or whatever games the kids may get, help my husband smoke a turkey and basically do nothing.

Well, seeing as I live in Southern California, its extremely rare on land, but in the mountains, it snows!

SoCal, right by the Pacific!

Nothing. Watch A Christmas Story, read (a friend is sending me a few e-books and I downloaded Kindle to my Droid), watch DVDs.

White Christmas here in Spokane, Washington. We get 'em every so often. They used to be more common, but due to global warming, they are getting rarer the past few years.

I wish. :\ At least I saw a little snow one day.
In my part of the world? Depends entirely on the elevation. I'm low, so we rarely get snow. Most of the places around me seem to get some though.
Oregon.
Awkwardly opening gifts and being thankful it's over.

And... I don't really watch much in the way of daytime TV. Uh... The Chew, I guess? If that's still on...

They've said we're going to get snow starting at 9 PM tonight. I don't know if it's actually snowing out or not. I have to get up at 5 AM in order to open presents at house #1 (where I'm sleeping/where I live), so guess I'll find out tomorrow at 5 AM. >.>

Pretty common. I'm in Connecticut.

Opening presents at 5 AM because my mom and her SO both have to go to work, going back to sleep, and then going to my dad's house at some point to open presents and have Christmas dinner with him, his fiance and her fiance's sons and their respective girlfriend/fiance, and then sleeping over there so probably watching movies and such.

It would appear so. We got about an inch today, with a little more forecast for tomorrow. And a whole bunch forecast for Wednesday. Yucky.
Pretty common, I live in SE Michigan.
