    Well what symbols/motifs/images do you associate with winter and/or Christmas? What comes into your head immediately if someone mentions either of those words? That would be a good starting point.

    Another good thing to do when you're stuck on descriptive writing is go through each of the senses and see what visual, auditory, olfactory etc. associations you have with whatever you're trying to describe. Mentioning sights, smells, sounds, tastes and feelings (not necessary all of the above!) can make your writing more vivid and give you an idea of what to talk about.
