Playing With / Dreaming of a White Christmas

Basic Trope: It's always a snowy winter in Christmas.
  • Straight: Whenever it's winter, it snows enough to give a nice, even coat on the ground.
  • Exaggerated:
    • At midnight on the winter solstice, there is a huge snowfall that creates an instant "white Christmas."
    • The setting is in Australia.
  • Downplayed: Winter scenes are accompanied by sparse flurries of snowfall.
  • Justified: The story is set relatively far North, in a place that really does get regular and thick winter snowfall.
  • Inverted: The story is set in a place where winter is the Dry Season, and summer is the Wet Season.
  • Subverted: The characters walk through a field of snow, which turns out to be from the snow machine at a ski resort.
  • Double Subverted: …but the next day, there's a blizzard that leaves a real field of snow behind it.
  • Parodied: The setting makes snowing outright impossible, but a blizzard blew out anyway and the people were caught unprepared.
  • Zig Zagged: The story takes place over several years. Some of these years have thick snowfalls, but others don't.
  • Averted: The story is set in Florida, so no snow is present.
  • Enforced: The creators want to make Christmas magical.
  • Lampshaded: "As you can see by the greeting-card snowfall, it is winter."
  • Invoked: A weather machine is built to make snowing possible.
