White Christmas Ornaments Ideas – Having lived in the South for most of my life I have to primarily recall the vivid and happy memories of playing in the pristine white snow and watching growing icicles hanging from our rooftops and blue spruce trees in the yard. A little bit of that frosty winter weather was symbolically brought inside and hung onto our Christmas tree by way of icicle ornaments and also snowflake ornaments each year and to top it off the beautiful voice of Bing Crosby singing I’m dreaming of a White Christmas resonated in our home along with other songs of the season.
With a steady supply of cold weather and rain or snow if the temperatures are below freezing, eventually icicles start to form. They continue to grow much as a stalactite in a cave and as moisture is added, it drips down and freezes thereby growing the size of the icicle. With the wind causing movement of branches of a tree like the Blue Spruce trees in our yard, the icicles generally break off before weighting the branches down and causing any damage.
