Yeah, but those are coastal conditions\ temps. The valleys are quite a bit warmer during summer & most would considered them hot [90's]. And the deserts are another story all together.

The same thing can be said for someone from L.A...they couldn't for the life of them picture a blistering cold, snowy day on christmas.

It just doesn't happen there or in the two powerhouse regions of the SF Bay Area and L.A County
It is not only what I am accustomed to, it is what the general public is accustomed to. When one think of 'Christmas', one will no doubt think of snow and cold temps. The same can be said about Thanksgiving. No doubt, the image of fall colors and cooler temps.

If I were to make the perfect Christmas movie, it would no doubt, have to have the winter image. All the great Holiday movies in the past: A Christmas Story, Home Alone, A Miracle on 34th St, A Christmas Carrol, etc all show the setting is also as important as the plot.

WoOoOooO

That's what I think all together.
Holidays have to match the season IMO.. I spent Christmas with my Grandpa in FL once.. blech. The holiday dec up looks corny, especially when it's 80 degrees and you're wearing shorts.
I totally agree with people loving the LA weather too, it's quite normal for people to love it.. but it shouldn't be considered a bizarre mystery of why people would rather choose the North East 4 season weather instead of jumping to the assumption of "It's jealousy" .

Snowdays are fun only sometimes.

Really? I think these pictures show the true beauty of 4 seasons:

Nanjing, China :from wikipedia:

Spring:

Summer:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/f9/Njsummer.jpg (broken link)

Fall:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/ae/Njautumn.jpg (broken link)

Winter:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/f/fd/Njwinter.jpg (broken link)

This is the beauty that nature has giving us, why would I want to live somewhere, where it is 75 all year long? Now that is boring.

Cool photos. The seasons do look nice, but me personally being a hater of cold weather, I guess I would prefer a place that's 75 degrees all year around. And because outer LA county has so may mountain ranges that have snow, and skiing and all that good stuff.
