I spent the last eight holiday seasons in San Francisco, a city decidedly not known for its snowfall. The Christmas fog and beribboned palm trees were very charming, but not quite the same as a white Christmas. If you're dying for a winter wonderland, invite your friends over for a faux snow party — all of the magical fluff and sparkle without the windchill!
