The National Weather Service defines a white Christmas as having 1 inch of snow on the ground on the morning of Dec. 25. 

 It doesn’t even need to snow on Dec. 25 to fit the weather service's definition of a white Christmas, but some flurries would certainly help put folks in the holiday spirit.

 This year, as of Dec. 15, only 18% of the contiguous U.S. is snow-covered, the lowest percentage for the date since 2006, according to the National Weather Service. This time last year, the nation was 42% snow-covered.

 NOAA said there are the parts of the United States where weather history suggests you want to be if you're looking for the best chance of a white Christmas: 

Head north to states or areas such as Minnesota, Maine, upstate New York, or the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, NOAA said. 

 Heading West is also a good idea, NOAA reports. 
"Practically anywhere in Idaho. And of course, the Rockies or the Sierra Nevada Mountains." 

 Some of the biggest cities with the best probability for a white Christmas, based on historical averages, include Minneapolis, Green Bay, Buffalo, and Burlington, Vermont, according to AccuWeather.
