Christmas On The Sunny Side

Everyone is posting gorgeous winter scenes for Christmas
Thought I would show you a little of how it really looks for Aussies
at this time of the year.

This was only last week at Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays
Christmas Tree in the foyer

Attempt at creating a winter scene in the tropics

Last day by the water

Ahhh , back to rain , rain & more rain !

I am interested in knowing what blogger friends from the other side of the world think.
Could you imagine a hot Christmas  or one without snow ?
I would imagine it really woudnt be Christmas for you.
It is actually raining here tonight on Christmas Eve & a lot cooler than normal.
There will be no swimming tommorow,
I was going to have seafood this year but the cooler weather has changed that to a
lovely organic turkey roast,
I actually am enjoying Christmas preparations more , candles are lit , carols are playing , 
shortbread baking 
There is a cosiness about it.
Hope it stays like this tommorow.

Merry Christmas Everyone
Have A Happy & Safe Holiday
Extra Special Christmas Wishes To Our Blogger Friends
Who are experiencing difficult times at the moment

  1. After an unexpected down pour here on Monday, we've had scorching hot, humid weather all week in Perth and tomorrow is forecast for 38!! My Mum emailed some photos last night of where she is in the UK on holiday at the moment, and the snow and cold all looks so lovely. I actually think Christmas would be better suited to the cooler weather - sitting around a fire, singing Christmas carols and drinking mugs of hot chocolate seem more cosy and Christmas-like to me than our Aussie heat.

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful time celebrating tomorrow Karyn and I look forward to more of your blog in 2011. Thanks for your friendship, support and encouragment throughout the year. Amanda xx

  2. Karyn your so right, tonight its pouring with rain, the candles are lit in my home too and I have just made the kids favourite chocolate ripple cake. Normally this time of year we are swimming and and have the aircon blazing. I have a hoodie on tonight and are snuggling up with a good mag. Cannot believe the difference in this weather. Have a lovely day tomorrow. Sandy x

  3. Gorgeous picture by the tree! Glad to see you had a great time! Enjoy the rest of the holidays, Kellie xx
