Yes, just like this past Christmas, and entirely unlike the previous two Christmases.

Subtropical climates like Florida, Australia, etc are the best of both worlds. Just imagine all the growing benefits of a tropical climate, yet with a solid season of cooler temperatures to help suppress the pests.

This is basically the perfect climate:

Wow. Glad Texas is a huge state and I don't live anywhere near those places.

Can't complain about the local NE Texas five day forecast at all! Love me some spring:
https://weather.com/weather/5day/l/USTX0234:1:US

Basically highs in the 60s and 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s. Plenty of sunshine. Nice morning thunderstorm thrown in for fun a few days from now. I've started working in the yard and things are already greening up! Woohooo!

For the record, we've had a nice change of season, to stick with the thread premise. We've made the transition from winter to spring and I don't expect any more freezing temps. I am still going to wait a couple of weeks before I plant anything but I think the danger of a freeze is over now. And to think that just a few weeks ago I was sitting by the fire at night and my dogs didn't even want to go outside to do their business because it was "cold." Yep, my dogs are Texans too - LOL. They don't want to go outside if the temps are below 35 or so!

Thankfully all but one of my hydrangea bushes made it through the winter (I planted them last year). They are rejuvenating. This was the first year to cut back my rose bushes as well (it was recommended that I give them three years in the ground before a serious trim). I cut them back a few weeks ago and wow, they are filling out beautifully now! Still no significant leaves on the trees but they are full of buds so that will be next.

Our lawn is already green. WOOHOO!

This is all very gratifying since we just made a road trip through the snow and ice from OH home to Texas. It was still snowing on us in Chattanooga, TN - which is a town I really like but dang. I had to buy a heavier coat on the trip because when I left for OH there wasn't snow in the forecast. Thankfully I bought one on clearance since it was at the end of the season!

I hate how dry it's been in TX some of these past few days. It feels more like the transition into fall instead of spring.

We got a lot of rain - 8 inches in a week two weeks ago and then a bit more rain over the past week. So we're good to go up here in the Tyler area.

Listening to the radio here in Denver and the DJ said if we don't get snow within this month, we are in for a long, hot , dry 6 months.

To each their own, I guess one can describe Cali's mediterranian climate as perfect.
