Well, I've just finished Christmas lunch - and feeling very full and relaxed. The rest of the party have found some comfortable spots for a little nap! It's about 28deg C here, sun shining, light breeze and in the middle of one of the world's best wine growing areas - what more could a person want?

Merry Christmas to you all! :D

:shock:

It always feels just wrong to think about Christmas in the summertime, even though I realize that half the world does it that way.

Once I spent Christmas in california and the weather was warm and there was no snow (of course) and it just felt so alien and strange. Gotta have my white christmas! :)

(tho I am jealous of your temperatures.... :)

Here we had 20 degrees Celsius below zero - that's the right temperature for Christmas ;-)

:?

Here we have temperature that's 28.8 degrees, but that is Farenheit, so it is definitely chilly out there. No snow, though...although if you squint your eyes, the frost looks a little like snow in bright sunlight. :D

Merry Christmas!

It's 3C here, which is quite warm, and we don't have as much snow as normal... it has been quite a mild winter! (I'm definitely happy about that)

Winter here is very mild indeed this year, no white Christmas. On our way to the cinema to see Lord of the Rings some snow fell, though.

Happy Boxing day :wink: !

those poor americans don't have boxing day.

boxing day is the day after christmas. there are conflicting accounts to explain what it is about and where it came from. but here, all we care about is that boxing day is the day when all the stores put everything on sale, so everyone goes shopping. :)

We call those the "after-Christmas sales" day, and Mamma (who hates driving in rush traffic, shopping in crowds, waiting in line, etc.) avoids them like the plague.

the difference is that in canada boxing day is a BIG deal, and is even an actual (statutory) holiday. i don't know whether it's the same in europe or not.

I didn't see snow until I was in my early 20's and went to Germany. I remember I was in a train and it started snowing; I managed to say to the other passengers that I had never seen snow before - they were so good and all insisted I sit right next to the window of the train. I found the cold weather at Christmas seemed very strange, so I guess it's what you are used to.

Yes, cold weather at Christmas is "normal" for us, even in Alabama, where we don't usually get snow. I remember a light dusting of snow on Christmas morning, one year, but that's it. Cold, though...cold is a different matter entirely. It's currently 19.9 degrees outside, and that's Farenheit.

I think the coldest we ever get to is about 1 or 2 deg. C, and that is at about dawn in the middle of winter. Just as well, or all my weird plants would die! (I have bromeliads and strange succulent plants gowing out side the back door - -in keeping with the strange people indoors!)
