When talking about a white Christmas, the type that makes the day truly magical, we’re not just talking about the odd snowflake here and there. What we want is a full covering. Enough to make snow angels, throw snowballs, and just enjoy all that’s good about the white stuff. 

We’re almost there yet again. Yes, Christmas is just around the corner. While the UK is experiencing some unseasonably warm weather many are left dreaming of a white Christmas in full knowledge that it will never become a reality. Well, not this year anyway. 

When talking about a white Christmas, the type that makes the day truly magical, we’re not just talking about the odd snowflake here and there. What we want is a full covering. Enough to make snow angels, throw snowballs, and just enjoy all that’s good about the white stuff. So, where do we have to go to find it? Betway Casino have crunched the numbers for us and we can now reveal the places to head to if you want to enjoy a truly white Christmas.

Vaduz, Liechtenstein
The capital of Liechtenstein is on the banks of the Rhine River and close to the Swiss border. Even when there is no snow at all, this is a place with stunning scenery and interesting history. Up on the hills overlooking the city, you will find the 12th century Vaduz castle which is still a royal residence today. Interesting as this may be, we are only interested in the snow!

This is a city where when you get a white Christmas it is a seriously white Christmas. Back in December 2011, there was an impressive 254.8 cm of the stuff. This means that Vaduz has seen the most snowfall than any other capital city since 2009. 

Oslo, Norway
Snowy Christmases aside, Oslo is a great place to live. Why? Well, research suggests that the residents here are amongst some of the healthiest in the entire world. Add that to the stunning forests (not what you’d expect in a capital city), and you can see why Oslo is so great.

It is Oslo that gifts London with a Christmas tree each year to display in Trafalgar Square and it is a place that when it snows, it really snows. In December 2020, Oslo saw 158.6cm of snowfall cover the ground and gave its residents a truly white Christmas.

Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina
A city steeped in history; Sarajevo is another capital where you can expect to see some impressive snowfall. Sat along the Miljacka River, Sarajevo is surrounded by the Dinaric Alps. It is this setting that led to the city hosting the 1984 Winter Olympics.  

December 2012 saw the city record its most impressive Christmas snowfall. Some 124cm covered the ground giving a white Christmas that those in the UK can only dream of.

A UK white Christmas?
In the UK, we are a little besotted with the idea of waking up to snow-covered rooftops on Christmas day. The unfortunate truth is, that if we really want to experience this magical moment, the UK, at least statically, is not the place to be.

Yes, the country has its charms, its quirks, and its appeals but, if you’re searching for a white Christmas, we’d suggest you search elsewhere with plenty of other options out there.
