December 25 in San Antonio history…

1874
The roof and central dome of San Jose y San Miguel de Aguayo Mission collapse during a midnight Mass.  Fortunately, the mass is being held in an adjoining room instead of the nave.

1955
It’s not a white Christmas in San Antonio – far from it!  The mercury rises to a record high of 90 degrees in the Alamo City. Still a record high for the date.

1983
Three days into what would be a particularly cold winter in the Alamo City, the temperature never rises above 30 degrees.  Still a record low high temperature for the date.
