Happy mid-winter Christmas!

Some of us in the southern hemisphere, who are used to winter christmases, have a wee second christmas in June, when it's as cold as it gets here. Today is our mid-winter celebration. We're having dinner with friends, there'll be turkey and all the trimmings, wee secret santa gifts and even a christmas tree!

  3. How fun! And what a great idea to chase away the cold, dreary winter! I love Christmas but could certainly do without the cold! *brrrr*

  4. I think I could deal only with one Christmas a year myself. Some of our local craft and hobby stores have Christmas deco already out and for sale. Too early for me!

  6. Well it was absolutely lovely! It's the most christmassy I've felt in all the time we've been here. IT was a nice cold night, the fire was lit, the Christmas tree lights were twinkling and we had the best company and the tastiest Christmas dinner! The cooks excelled themselves.

  8. You can never have too many occasions to gather with those you care about to share in fun and food! What a grand idea.

    Have a festive, joyous time!

    (And I am curious: How cold is the coldest part of your winter? Does it snow?)

  9. Well, we're sub tropical, being right at the top of NZ. So it never snows ( pity as I love snow) we're on a plane so in a year we have perhaps 2 incredibly light frosts that don't really cover much at all. Coastal areas will never get anything near a frost Temp wise it gets down to 5~ 6 degrees at night. Day time temps regularly 17 ish. But it can rain...boy can it rain!!!
