FirstSnow. Sometimes the "snow" will not actually be snow at all, but something like laundry soap flakes. Expect characters in that case to either not notice, barely notice, or just not care.



* Played with in an advertisement for the California Lottery. A child wakes up to his father showing him that it is snowing outside. The camera pulls back to reveal street signs indicating that the family lives in San Diego. Pulling further back, it is revealed that the father has used his lotto money to hire snow machines so that his son can finally see snow.

* ''[[DrakeAndJosh Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh]]'' subverts this, a little girl wishes for snow at Christmas in her tropical home and Drake and Josh deliver on this via a wood chipper... eventually. It wasn't working until "Crazy Steve" loaded it up with hard cheese instead of Drake and Josh's original plan, ice, which didn't go to well for them - smashing windows and causing other massive property damage.

* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'':
** Subverted many a time; Calvin often begs, yells, prays, chants and on one occasion, even dressed as a snowman as part of a decoy, to get snow but is always disappointed. Then again, it may be because he keeps praying to "snow demons" instead of God...
--->'''Calvin's Dad:''' I don't know if your grasp of meteorology or theology is more appalling.
** Then there's the time Calvin is standing at the bus stop alone, and pleads with the PowersThatBe for snow. He gets a torrential downpour.
--->'''Calvin:''' So close... and yet, so far.

* In the WhoopiGoldberg film ''Call Me Claus'', her character's decision to assume the mantle of Santa not only ends the record December heat wave, but causes it to snow in Los Angeles.
* Similarly, at the end of the KelseyGrammer vehicle ''Mr. St. Nick'', his assumption of his Santa Claus powers causes it to snow in Miami.
* The first present that the new Santa Claus gives at the end of ''ErnestSavesChristmas'' is to let a man who'd moved to Florida for work related reasons have snow on Christmas for the first time in years.

* This is half the plot of ''TheYearWithoutASantaClaus:'' the mayor of Southtown, U.S.A. will help SantaClaus get a year off only if [[ChristmasElves Jingle and Jangle]] can make it snow. They, Iggy and MrsClaus have to go to [[AnIcePerson Snow Miser]], but he can only help if his brother [[PlayingWithFire Heat Miser]] allows him, and the two despise each other.
** Another one of Creator/RankinBassProductions, ''TheStoryOfTheFirstChristmasSnow,'' is similar. A shepherd boy named Lucas is blinded by lightning and is taken to an abbey, where one of the nuns, Sister Teresa, reminisces at length about the white Christmases of her youth. Lucas admits to his friend Louisa that his greatest wish is to have it snow. It happens at the end while the two are in a Nativity play, and he says her description is so nice that he can practically see it. [[spoiler:[[TemporaryBlindness Then he realizes he actually is getting his sight back]]]].
