TRENDING: Irish people really get excited when it starts to snow

There was a little surprise for everyone this morning when it began to snow in Dublin, and in typically Irish fashion, people freaked out at the first fall of the winter.

Having battled through heavy traffic, many commuters were still stuck on the roads when the flurry began, and it did not take long for #Snow to begin trending on Twitter, eventually becoming the top trend in Dublin by 10:15am.

The weather forecast for the rest of the day is to be largely the same, with low temperatures continuing and rain turning to sleet in parts.

For many, the arrival of the snow was too much to handle, while for others, it was the perfect time to crack out the snowflake and snowman emojis!

Does this mean it's officially Christmas?

Meanwhile, in Clondalkin, the snow seemed to be heavier than in other parts of Dublin!!!

While in Lucan, the perfect festive scene was captured by RTE's Fergal Bowers.
