Thursday, April 19

After you with the sun screen, Santa!

I LOVE New Zealand. It's the most amazing place ever to live. My only problem is the seasons. They're all back to front.

Snow in July.Totally weird!
Lambs in October. Can't be right!
Leaves falling off the trees in April. Yikes!

And worst of all, Christmas on the beach. Nooooooo!

Christmas is all about snuggling up by the fire; wrapping up warmly and going out to see the lights; it being dark by mid to late afternoon; eating as much turkey, stuffing and roast potatoes as is humanly possible.

It's not about laying on the beach and having a BBQ, with salads and cold ham...... And what about Santa..... how awful is it for him to be dressed up in a thick woollen suit, when he'd rather be in board shorts, tee shirt and flip flops?

BBQ and salads on Christmas Day?! Even when it's 40 degrees here in Oz we have turkey, stuffing - the works! OK nobody is able to actually EAT it cause it's too hot - but it wouldn't feel like Christmas otherwise!

Hi Sara:
I recently moved from Florida (Christmas on the beach) to Virginia ("normal" seasons), and it literally lifts my mood to have the seasons happen--and to happen, now that you mention it, when I expect them to happen. I like having a fire in my fireplace Christmas morning, and for it to be cold on Thanksgiving. :-)

Hey Sara-
As a California native- I'm used to my mild, non-seasons!
When I lived in Mykonos- winters were damp and miserable.
When I lived in NYC they were COLD!
I'm a total weather wimp, and I'm glad to be in CA!

I'm also a California girl, so a sunny Christmas doesn't seem too bizarre to me, but I still think snow in June would!

Kelly Parra said...

Wow, I didn't know that! I agree with Lisa, CA is always strange but I would definitely be mixed up in NZ! :) :)

First of all, I'd love to visit New Zealand, flipped seasons not withstanding!

We're preparing to move from Japan to Ohio, and the way things are going for them, snow in June might be a very real possibility. At least Santa knows how to dress in the Buckeye State!

Gerb, we'd love to see you here.... just let me know when....

And hahahaha Christina on spending all that time cooking a christmas lunch that no one eats....

I know I'm strange, but I love the change in seasons! Chicagoans love when it snows during the holidays (although I can't imagine going to the beach during Christmas) and when spring comes I swear everyone is in a happy mood.
My sister lives in California. I think she wears a winter coat when it's 60 degrees outside. Here in Chicago we're practically swimming when it's 60 degrees!

I used to be jealous of my aunt (only a few years older than me) who got to wear the cutest Halloween costumes. She lives in FL and I lived in CO. So she could be a mermaid, a hula girl ... pretty much anything. I, on the other hand, went trick-or-treating in a big coat and snowboots, and the costume I was wearing was nowhere to be seen. Of course, I could have dressed like a gorilla or something that's cold-weather ready.

But wow, Sara. The seasons there in NZ would def. take getting used to!
