More First World Problems, by Land Rover!
Everything isn't quite perfect for the daughter in this family- she really wants a White Christmas. Well, that's understandable. Lots of kids want a White Christmas. Pretty much all of them who don't live in a Northern climate zone just learn to deal with it.
But this kid, who lives in the middle of the desert with her parents and their three Land Rovers, isn't like most of the others. While she sleeps, her daddy carries her to the back seat of one of the family's Land Rovers and drives to their summer home in the mountains where there IS snow. Everything must be Just Right for the little princess, and that's possible because this family has a summer home in the mountains.
And since that summer home in the mountains is within easy driving distance from the winter home in the desert, it's kind of hard to understand why they didn't just plan on spending Christmas there anyway. Maybe daughter was perfectly happy decorating a cactus and looking forward to getting a Land Rover Of Her Very Own someday until the very last minute? Maybe daughter figured out that using her pouty face and acting like she's at least five years younger than she actually is will get daddy to melt (again) and get her what she really really wants which is to spend Christmas week skiing with her friends at the resort near the Summer Home?
