Back to the "Townie Humor" subplot. Luke watches the re-enactors approach their places in full battle gear. He walks up to the mayor and begs him to put a stop to this. The mayor points out that Luke's father was a re-enactor, and that Luke should have some respect. Luke says that he thought his father was crazy also. As the re-enactors walk away, Lorelai giggles and walks up. "There goes the police chief, the fire chief, and the one paramedic with a legal license. I feel safe, don't you?" Luke and Lorelai go back and forth on whether or not tradition is nice in this "I hate things"/"I think things are nice" banter that has already been written before on lots of Christmas specials. Lorelai explains her love of snow: she says that when she was five she had a bad ear infection that kept her in bed for a week so she wished really hard that something wonderful would happen and the next morning it snowed. So whenever she sees snow, she thinks it's a gift for her. This snow in Stars Hollow is pretty cool, though. It's really thick and sticks to hair but nothing else, and it doesn't make the air all cold like regular snow does, so everyone wears nice coats and hats, but it's warm enough that they can all stand around and chit-chat without having to see their own breath or dance around to keep warm. The ground is a bit wet, but not enough that cars are swerving around. No one's face is red or chapped and makeup stays pretty darn perfect. Yeah, I can see why Lorelai loves it when it snows in Stars Hollow. Luke tells Lorelai that his father used to be a re-enactor and that he had his own musket, with which he was buried. The camera cuts over to the re-enactors taking their places for a photo. Those guys are magical too: they are standing in the only place where snow has collected on the ground in Stars Hollow. Luke asks if Lorelai wants to come into the diner for some coffee. She says she'd rather walk around: "Enjoy my present a little." Whatever. Luke watches Lorelai walk off and sighs. Lorelai officially went off the cute chart and into the crazy-girl chart on that last scene, by the way.
