Despite snow-flurried scenes on Christmas cards being a staple part of the festive season in the UK, how often do we actually get to enjoy a white Christmas? I spend every Christmas at my family home in Scotland, and I reckon I could count on one hand how often I’ve seen a sprinkling of the white stuff on the day itself.
Although it seems that most of the UK is to be seeing a snow storm or two over the next few days, of course some parts of the UK have more chance than others of seeing snow each year. And when it comes to Christmas Day this year, Aberdeen looks like the favourite according to William Hill, coming in with odds of eleven to four.
But if you’re really dreaming of a white Christmas, you’ve got to aim high. Mountain high if possible. Here’s our pick of the homes on the market with a chance of seeing snow this Christmas.
