I wish you a Merry Christmas…

All I Want for Christmas, emilyforbes-72dpi-1500x2000

I love Christmas and I love summer and, in Australia, two of my favourite things combine but I would love to experience a white Christmas. We watch it in the movies and sing about it in our Christmas carols -which is hilarious as Christmas Day Down Under can often be 100°F/ 39°C – while we are drinking chilled Champagne and eating seafood, fresh berries and pavlova (basically a big meringue but better  🙂 )followed by a swim in the pool.

What I would love to know is if anyone in the northern hemisphere dreams of a hot Christmas or is it a southern hemisphere thing?

Wherever you are and however you are celebrating I wish you a very Merry Christmas with love, laughter, friends and family. And if you haven’t finished (or started!) your shopping here are some suggestions gathered from around the globe.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and happy and healthy 2018,

  1. Hi Emily

    I too dream of a white Christmas maybe one day 🙂 today has been hot down here in Sydney and I have made Christmas puddings first one boiled away on the stove for 6 hours and now this one (smaller) is on for 3 1/2 still a bit more to go but it wouldn’t be Christmas in my house without Christmas pud 🙂

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family and love those covers woohoo and books are always great gifts

    Have Fun

  2. Hi Helen, I saw on Facebook you were busy with Christmas puddings 🙂 My mother-in-law makes a fab pudding (so I don’t have too!). have a Merry Christmas and I hope you find some books under your tree for you

  3. I lived the first half of my life in Wisconsin,so having a cold (and sometimes white) Christmas was the norm. The last 30 years I have been in Florida, with temperatures in the 70-80 degree range. I just want the week before Christmas to be a bit cooler (50-60F would be nice) so I can open the windows and bake my cookies and treats. I hate baking when it’s warm out. Of course, this week it’s cooler, but if I bake now, my gang will eat all the treats before Christmas!

  4. I hear you, Laurie, I have teenage boys in the house, my baking does not last long!! What is the perfect Christmas temperature for you? Are you happy with 50-60 degrees?

  5. Hi Emily, I’d LOVE a hot Christmas, once in a while! Our coldest months are usually January/February, but we’ve already had some early snowfall here in the UK, so maybe this year we’ll have a white Christmas :).

    One thing that really makes it feel like Christmas for me, is the Christmas lights – when it’s dark by about 4pm, all the displays make such a difference to the long evenings. I can’t imagine getting through a cold and gloomy winter without them 🙂 xx

    1. Hi Annie – Christmas lights! Aren’t they fabulous. We have a country town near us where almost every house gets into the festive spirit and it is absolutely amazing but we have to wait until about 9pm before it is dark enough to be spectacular 🙂 We might have to do a house swap one Christmas – our pool for your Christmas lights!!
