Very nice, Kylie!
I gotta ask....What is it like celebrating Christmas in your part of the world with summer coming on? Just wonderin' mind you. I think it would be kind nice, even though christmas lights reflectin' off the snow are beautiful.

Thank you Hoot

I am so used to having Christmas in Summer and sunshine, so I wouldnt know what it is like in the cold and snow etc

Steve thought it was weird, he still does, since he was born in England, he had many, many cold, snowy Christmases over there and finds it strange when it is sunny and warm at that time

I grew up in Michigan and when I was about 10, my grandparents retired to Florida. We started visiting them at Christmastime and loved telling our friends back home that we had gone swimming in the ocean on Christmas Eve.

3rd year for this fibre optic tree. Sorry that it's a bit blurry - no tripod. The colour wheel isn't going around. I will have to open up the base and see if it is something I can fix. It's a lot more fun when it changes colour and twinkles.

GG, we moved to California from Minnesota when I was just a baby and one year my Mom sent Christmas pictures back to Minnesota of us at the beach here in December. The following year half the Minnesota relatives came out here to plant themselves in our house for the winter. Mom always said she learned her lesson about bragging about our winter climate.

Our tree is up but not completed yet. When it is, I'll be back with a picture. Great idea K !!

Yes, it certainly is a good feeling having Summer at Christmas, a lot of people have BBQ's for Christmas Day lunch and dinner with lots of seafood etc and spend time at the beach
