We usually think of the little one's faces lighting up Christmas day when they see snow but everyone we spoke to had a little grin on their face with the thought.
"It doesn't matter how old you are you still get excited when you hear snow in the forecast," said Mary McMorran. "It gets exciting around here when they talk about snow."
Anticipation is building as we get closer to some real wintery weather.
Come Tuesday (12/25) and Wednesday, Christmas lights all over central Arkansas will likely be covered in a blanket of white.
With winter weather however, comes compromised road conditions.
McMorran explained, "My son from Nashville's driving in and he's supposed to be going back right when it hits so he might have to leave a little bit early."
The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department ensures they'll be prepared for those that have no choice but to travel.
"Time for families to get together unfortunately that requires travel," shared Public Information Coordinator with the Highway Department, Randy Ort. "This might not be a good week to travel."
The Department says they're on standby with crews ready to go, even on Christmas, to make sure the roads are safe to travel.
Some from out of state have weathered the storm here before.
"We're visiting family, we come here three times a year from New Orleans," Vinnie Pervel explained. "We experienced snow a few years ago so it won't be too much of a headache for us but hopefully we won't have any problems."
Unless you're out driving around Tuesday and Wednesday you'll likely have a chance to sit back and enjoy a white Christmas, regardless of your age.
