Long odds on White Christmases.
William Hill is offering odds of 50/1 that there will be no White Christmases until 2050.
It also said that the "dominance" of ITV's X Factor programme means that betting on who will take the Christmas number one spot could also become a thing of the past.
"The dominance of the X Factor means that betting on the Christmas number one is likely to be consigned to the history books and White Christmas could go the same way if global warming continues to gather pace," said Rupert Adams.
"Sadly I think the 50/1 for no White Christmas before 2050 is your best bet."
Many Britons had a grey Christmas yesterday as dreams of the white stuff melted away.
