A warm Christmas

Christmas is lovely in Australia. We opened presents, had waffles and spent the rest of the day at our friend's house. Usually, we go for a swim at the beach but we ran out of time this year, unfortunately. 

I definitely miss the snow at this time of the year. Sure, it's great to have a warm Christmas once, but I miss the snow and the Christmas music which plays all the time and the decorations and the tinsel. 

I'm not complaining, of course. It's just different. (And to be totally honest here, I'm not sure what the point of this post is other than the random ramblings of an immigrant who misses snow but is enjoying the heat. *shrugs*)

  1. I feel you here, since I just moved to a warmer state after spending years and years in Maine where it snows pretty much every Christmas (although, it's funny, because this year Maine didn't have a white Christmas either, so I wasn't really missing out). In Virginia, it was so warm I was a little disappointed that we weren't even going to have a cold Christmas. But then it started to rain really hard for the rest of the day and that made me really really happy because I am madly in love with rain. So it was a great Christmas after all. And my sister and I are planning on having a second Christmas. We're pooling our money to buy me a MacBook since my Dell is a dinosaur, and I'm going to buy her something cool, and when we get our first snow fall, we'll have a second Christmas.

    I actually don't miss the snow as much as I thought I would. We had massive snow falls last year and I had to shovel most of it, and it was really frustrating because I have a bad back and it got a lot worse last winter. So yeah, I'm pretty happy with no snow, at least none that I have to shovel.

    1. I'm glad you had those years of having a white Christmas, and I'm even happier you are enjoying your Christmas without snow this year with your sister. And that's so awesome that it rained all day; I totally get the loving-the-rain thing (especially when you fall asleep and hear it on the roof...) so it's so cool that you had that on Christmas. That sounds like a great plan. Have fun with your second Christmas! That's good that you don't have to shovel anymore. Thanks for sharing, Liz!

  2. I guess, for me, it's kind of nice because Christmas is sort of a surprise around here. A couple years ago on Christmas it was so warm that my parents made us go outside and do yard work (ugh). But, this year, it snowed. Still, perhaps snow is not the most important thing... Anyway. Merry Christmas!

    1. Wow, that's awesome! (You know, minus the yard work.) And that's nice that it snowed this year. I think it'd be fun to have a different Christmas each year. And snow definitely isn't the most important thing, but it helps to set the mood of Christmas a lot more. Merry Christmas, Heather!
