A White Christmas
By Colleen Messina
  

1     One well-known Christmas song is called White Christmas. The lyrics talk about dreaming of a white Christmas. It was written in 1942. Soldiers in World War II loved the song. Snow inspired that song writer. Children dream of snowflakes, too. They want to have a day off from school!
 
2     Places that get cold in winter can enjoy a white holiday. Snowflakes make the world white in winter. Snowflakes seem magical. They start in a cloud. They start when water vapor cools in the air. The water condenses. It freezes into an ice crystal. It starts out very small. Then the crystal grows. It gets more complex. It blows around inside the cloud. Then it falls to earth.
