It's a rare thing for Sheffield to see a sprinkling of the white stuff on December 25, to be honest.

There only needs to be a single flake landing in the city for it to classify as a White Christmas - but everyone wants the real thing, with blanketed streets and hills you could sled down.

If you're optimistic and have asked Santa for a sled this year, you might have to wait a bit to use it. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures of snowy December days in Sheffield.
