So what are the odds of a White Christmas in this year?

Paddy Power reveals odds for a white Christmas in Kilkenny

Will we be building snowmen on December 25?

So we've had a bit of snow over the past week but what are the actual odds we'll have a White Christmas this year?

Well Boylesports has recently shortened the odds from 5/1 to 3/1 and booking has been suspended on bets because of fears of a massive Christmas payout.

Paddy Power has also reduced the odds of a White Christmas (snowfall at Dublin airport) to 3/1.

Of course, just because people are betting on snow this December 25 doesn't mean there will actually be any. According to the latest long-term forecasts we won't be seeing any festive flurries this Christmas.

Accuweather.com says that Christmas Day in Dublin will be cloudy but completely snow free with a high of 8C and an overnight low of 2C.

Snow fell on Christmas day on 12 days (1950, 1956, 1962, 1964, 1970, 1984, 1990, 1993, 1995, 1999, 2000, and 2004) since records began here in 1941.

In Ireland snow occurs most frequently in the months from December to March.

If you're going to have a flutter here's an article that might help you beat the bookies.
