Weather in NC for Christmas 2015 was so strange! It reached almost 80 degrees. We had the windows open (even at night - WHAT??) and wore shorts that we had to get back out. The mist was pretty though. It takes odd weather for the mist to roll in from the creeks. I have to say, I'd rather have a cold Christmas. It was hard to shop (the mall had the heat on - UGH) and hard to decorate - who in the heck wants to put up cute little snowmen in 80 degree weather??
