White Christmas Definition

According to all the news stories which appear every year about people betting on a White Christmas, it all depends on a single snowflake falling on the Met Office roof (or whatever your own own local location is) on Christmas Day.

Now surely this means that there could be snow lying up to the Met Office windowsills, but it wouldn't be a "White Christmas" unless one further flake fell on the roof, which seems a bit daft.

It has to be the Met office in London for the bookies to pay out.

"It has to be the Met office in London for the bookies to pay out."

Bookies will take a bet on anywhere, from Marrakesh to Anchorage, though I doubt you would get very good odds on the latter!
