Since when did palm trees become a novelty?

Snow is the novelty, not palm trees. I’m in Boston, experiencing snow and blizzards and shoveling for the first time. When I went home over Christmas I forgot about the palm trees. That’s weird; they were always the backdrop for my days. They are such strange looking things now. A novelty, now. It makes me wonder where home is. Now.
