Unlike our friends in the northern hemisphere, we don’t have White Christmases… We don’t even EVER have snow around here…
Christmas Day was extremely hot- around 37 degrees C. And we have a home full of family, both grandmothers, and my wife’s one brother and some of his family- we were 12 people in all.
After our early morning church session, it was time to light the barbeque, and we had some beef- and pork rolls on it, with a huge amount of other food. On Christmas Day South Africans eat. A lot! Then we need to take a siesta to recover again.
Late afternoon it was time for a cold watermelon. And this is my memory of Christmas Day 2013- my wife and her brother in the swimming pool, trying to cool down…
I adore winter and cold weather, but I just have to say that this photo made me look forward to summer !
Dis beslis die beste manier om af te koel en te ontspan! Bly om te sien julle het ook geniet. 😀
Wense vir ‘n voorspoedige en wonderlike 2014. 😀
Merry Christmas to you and your family. After spending the past three days shoveling snow, the pool and the watermelon look pretty good to me!
Merry Christmas… lovely sunshine, watermelon and swimming. There’s no better way to celebrate 🙂
Looks good to me… 37 sounds nice to me, just about a decent temperature. We are ok until it goes over 40, then it’s a tad too warm, such as 46 last summer, but 37… on yes, miss that. No snow here either, although there was 1cm in 1978 or something, lol.
Te heerlik! 🙂
