I was born and rasied in South Florida, and the temperature hasn't changed one bit in 40+ years. We spent many a Christmas day on the beach when I was growing up.

LISTEN TO WHAT EVERYONE IS TELLING YOU - STOP IGNORING EVERYONE TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING.

It's ALWAYS been that way in Florida. ALWAYS.

Scientests have been wrong many times, and I think you're naive to trust them. If you're so scared about global warming, go to Canada...but don't whine about something which we've seen absolutely no solid proof of (please don't link me to a thousand global warming websites for saying this). I realize the earth is warming - but we have no proof of bad things happening from this. So be quiet, or move to Canada.

45 degrees is NOT mild. I don't care where you're from. 45 degrees is not warm by almost any stretch.

Wait a minute! Florida and the Southern States are already too hot for those not from there and those who live there.

I always thought "mild" meant a gentle cold or chill.

"Mild" in Toronto means if it's windy, your ears probably won't sting.

You make it sound like it's too hot for everyone.

You seem to be forgetting the few people from up North who think northern summers aren't warm enough.
I've also met a few people from the South who actually like their summers as well.

Sorry but you're stupid if you move to Florida and expect it to be below 60 on Christmas day. (Using you're in general.)

LOL Good point!!!

To the author of this thread, may I bring up the super cold spell you guys had this month? Snowflakes in Tampa? Remember that? Id say you guys have had quite the cold month, with a hot spell tossed in at the moment.

I believe most of these people wishing for cold Christmas's didn't move to Florida, they were born there. So they aren't stupid!

Just as I love summer's above 85 F and I live in Canada.

If glaciers are melting, why don't scientists create some type of machine that can convert water into energy?!

Just a thought. .

Alright~someone who also believes the same way that I do about "global warming". From 1555 until 1855 we had a mini ice age and we're warming up nicely from that. More then likely the people that were going through that were afraid that the earth would freeze over and become one giant glacier. The glaciers are now back to where they were 600 years ago. It's just part of the earth's ever changing patterns.
