Brits bet on a white christmas

Falling temperatures are apparently persuading British online punters that there will be a white Christmas this year, with a growing number putting money on the possibility.

Part of the British festive season build-up is the annual gamble on whether snow will fall over the Christmas period, and the snowy predictions this year have persuaded bookies like William Hill to slash the price of snow in Aberdeen from 8/1 to 3/1 and snow in London to an 8/1 shot.

One snow gambler from Derbyshire will collect as much as GBP 14 700 on his bets with William Hill if there is a blanket of snow on Christmas morning, the bookie revealed.

"The 8/1 for snow in London is unlikely to last long as we are seeing some serious money for a white Christmas." said William Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
