The snow is on it's way according to Long Island Weather.

Kids of all ages are missing playing in the white, fluffy stuff that we haven't seen since the November Nor'easter and hardly at all last winter.  There are many snow day superstitions happening in homes across Long Island.  I am sure that most people would be happier if it was forecast during the week instead of Friday into Saturday. 

Here are some popular snow day superstitions...  Wear your pajamas inside out and backwards.  Put a wooden spoon under your pillow.  Flush one ice-cube for each member of your family down the toilet.  Do a "snow dance."  Put a white crayon in the freezer and then under your pillow.  Yell snow day into the freezer.  Say this prayer- Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray for snow twelve inches deep.  Should it melt before I wake, I pray school’s canceled by mistake!

There is nothing better than a good old-fashioned snow day.  Families can enjoy sleeping in, baking and building snowmen.  The most cherished tradition is sledding followed by the obligatory hot cocoa.  Bundle up in layers and check out these official sledding locations.
