Snow. Nothing gets me in the holiday spirit more. We had almost 0 snow this past winter. It felt very wrong. Palm trees don't do much for me.

Palm trees for sure! However, I will miss snow at Christmas time once I move.

Snow. Palm trees are Palm trees. Snow adds something different to everything in it's path.

Well...one is a weather condition, and the other is a tree. I like snow for the associated recreational activities. I also like dates and coconuts. If I have to choose, I'll take snow, since I can just go to the market and buy dates and coconuts.

Palm trees...Snow is nice for about a day or even a couple of hours (especially in a big city) and then it's just an dirty eyesore or safety hazard (when it freezes up).
