When making my Christmas (shopping) lists and checking them twice, I often forget to consider snow, which is somewhat understandable. Depending on where you are in the world, snow probably isn’t at the forefront of your mind in the days before Christmas, especially if you’re shoveling snow, driving through snow, or just looking at snow. have been
But you need snow on Christmas (both day and eve). You need ice for stirring cocktails, making iced tea (or any other iced beverage), chilling champagne, filling a cooler, or — if you’re fun and fancy — keeping your caviar or shrimp cocktail at the proper temperature.
Unfortunately, there is no instant snow-Hacking, and it takes several hours in the freezer for those water molecules to align into a solid crystal. You can go buy ice, but many stores are closed for most or all of the day. But you know who (probably) isn’t turned off? McDonald’s. I say “probably” because nearly all restaurants are franchises, so it’s not a guarantee, but I’ve eaten enough McDonald’s sausage biscuits on Christmas morning to be optimistic. (A company representative also told pioneer woman Most golden arched establishments will be open, and who doesn’t trust a company representative?)
otherwise also. Most of these franchises sell bags of ice for less than two bucks, so you can ease yourself to the drive-thru on your very own.Frozen water is all you need, then breeze home to shake up some icy cocktails, or simply brew some tea. If you want good snow (pebble snow), hit up your local Sonic, but be sure to visit on Christmas Eve. Most Sonic drive-thru’s open on the evening before the Nativity of our Lord and Saviour, but not on Blessed Day.
