New York City on Thursday had its warmest Christmas Eve on record, making for scene more associated with spring than winter.
The high of 72F was so unusual, it had many New Yorkers confused.
Travel plans were compromised.
There was a lot of sweat.
And plenty of complaining.
As a result of the confusion, many people made unfortunate fashion choices.
Others opted to wear nothing at all.
Or planned to barbecue, because, spring?
Some people took the strange weather as an invitation for new Christmas traditions.
But others were left yearning for the old frosty weather New Yorkers have come to expect during Christmas.
Better luck next year, New York.
