Hawaiians aren’t just dreaming of a white Christmas – they’re living it.

Though most states were enjoying unseasonably warm weather Wednesday, the National Weather Service put the Big Island mountain peaks in Hawaii under a blizzard warning.

The summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea are both covered in snow, the Washington Post reports.

According to the paper, snow isn’t unusual on those mountain peaks, but there aren’t any records to show the last time, if ever, the wintery weather has happened on Christmas.

One thing’s for sure: Santa Claus better wear more than a Hawaiian shirt or grass skirt when he drops off presents in the Aloha State.
