    You can just call it soap, i don't think anybody here will have a problem with you calling it what it really is .

    It's not so much the 'soap/snow' after Fireworks...but the snow on top of the castle.....and icicle lights heavily draped from the castle.....

What happened to just putting up the Christmas Tree and wreaths and garland and lights? Why the 'fake' stuff? It doesn't snow in Anaheim.


    I get what you are saying.

    Being a lifelong Southern Californian, I've often had to endure holiday seasons listening to songs of white Christmases and Sleigh Rides, and going to shopping malls decked with snow scenes, snow men, icicles, and everything to do with the winter season when it was 80 degrees outside. It got to the point to where it was suggested that it really isn't Christmas if there isn't snow.

    But then I came up with this little conclusion in my mind that put this to rest at least for me. If there is one place in America that experiences a "true Christmas" it is Southern California. Not even Florida, Hawaii, or the South, but Southern California has the most accurate climate when it comes to Christmas. Jesus was born in Bethlehem, and like Bethlehem, Southern California has the exact same desert/Mediterranean climate. This is the only place in North America that has this specific type of climate. So a true Christmas would not involve snow at all.

    In this aspect snow on the castle does seem gaudy. But snow is what helps sell Christmas gifts so I guess we're stuck with it.

    Good points D I P. I know what you mean......and I appreciate that you understand my view too. I know why Disney does it - I just don't like it....but it doesn't detract from my visit - but I just felt the need to comment, because I don't like it.

    We put up some really nice decor in our home for Christmas, and never have we put up 'fake' snow. Can't see why Disney feels it's necessary, but whatever...I guess it's homage to Bing Crosby or something - I don't know

    LOL it is even more ironic that we have fake snow on windows etc down here in New Zealand, it is summer during December. A throw back to our British roots but even so it never made any sense to me

    The last one that Samaha [ms] did with Christmas I think was last year Christmas when she is over at DCA side and by Sorain you see the old red Monirail in the back. But they did show some of the new rides and stuff then at the time so they had to flim some of that stuff years ago.
