Beginning to look a lot like Christmas?

Last night we got a very light dusting of snow; small flakes that melted immediately that later turned into rain. Matthew was intensely excited by the snow (and angry at the rain); "After it snow it going be Christmas!"

I tried to explain that it doesn't exactly work that way -- Christmas and snow are independant occurences . That pretty much bounced off the wall of 4-year-old enthusiasm. I had a bit more luck explaining that Christmas came after halloween and thanksgiving, but this morning he was excited again by the frost on the ground, chattering about how it was going to be Christmas soon now.
