The first week of 2017 is looking promising weather-wise. One to three inches of snow is forecast for our Georgia town! Eight year-old Eli hasn't seen sled-able snow since 2014, so he's not taking any chances! We had heard about folk beliefs that kids put into practice to bring on the fluffy white stuff. We decided to try them all! (Sorry for the dark photos. I recently upgraded my hard drive and now my photo editing software won't work.)
- Place a spoon under your bed and a penny under your pillow.
- In each toilet in your home, place one ice cube for every inch
of snow wanted.
- Shake a snow globe.
- Eat ice cream. (We didn't have any! Surely Cool Whip will do.)
- Yell "Snow Day!" into the freezer.
- Place a white crayon on every window sill.
(One white colored pencil will have to suffice!)
- Run around the dining room twelve times.
- Drink root beer with a straw.
- Wear a colored sock on your left foot but not on your right.
- Do a snow dance.
- Say prayers.
- Wear your pajamas inside out and backwards.
(We used fuzzy footie PJs because they are the funniest!
But he will sleep in an easier set.)
LET IT SNOW!
