Christmas In New Zealand
Well you must realize first it is Summer here and the kids are now off for Summer vacation (about two months). It is not just Christmas Break. And since it is the longest days of the year, there is not a lot of Christmas lights(very very few). As a matter of fact not a lot of any Christmas decorations. They are not selling fresh cut pine trees on every corner. And Christmas dinner is steaks, chicken, burgers, lamb etc on the "barbie" grill. Or it is a picnic in the park. It is games outside with the family. Everything is closed so it really is a quiet peaceful family day. Attached are pictures--the decorated Palm tree, Owen's Christmas morning, and my gift to myself so I can have good coffee.
