Hi All

I would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy, Prosperous, and Peaceful New Year.

I am going to be very busy from now on, and thought I had better get this on before I forgetl

At least I have just managed to find someone to clear my large drive of snow 6-8ins deep in places. Thank God !!

Let us just hope that the wonderful lorry drivers that move the M& S juggernauts arrive here tomorrow, otherwise I shall have a panic stations.

Will be on here from Boxing Day hopefully

Maddie

Hi Maddie and all members, guests and spiders

Seasons Greetings and Health and Happiness to you all. I hope you and yours have a lovely holiday and the turkey cooks a treat. I have promised to cook our Christmas meal this year (what was I thinking of).

Apart from this I'll be on my computer, so I hope there will be plenty of Questions posted to keep me busy

It seems funny to be thinking about Christmas when it's mid summer in Oz. Is it still tradition to have Turkey etc and put up a tree and tinsel, or just throw a few sausages on the barbee.

I know it's not related, but through a contact made on this site I have just received the address of the last living member of my grandfather's generation, of whom I had no knowledge. What a Christmas present, a Great Aunt aged 92, who when told of my existence had a very big smile on her face.

Happy Christmas

Hi Dave,
Yes its tradition here as well, tho i cant remember having turkey but chicken or a roast with all the trimmings. Because of the heat where i live tho i choose to do cold meats with a huge range of salads, unless i head to the neighbours:biggrin: Tree and all the tinsel as well. We also have houses decorated with xmas lights etc and go for a drive around and check them out, some beautiful displays. Some home owners even go to the trouble of dressing up as santa and be out in their front yards as people drive past looking at the xmas lights. The kids love it. Last year a couple here where i live had a horse and sulky and you could book seats on it and go on it to check the lights displays out. I was going to take the grandkids on it last year but it was booked out due to high demand.

Dave Hi, We have here in Oz 2 different types of Christmas, My family and i and many others have a traditional English Xmas Lunch, then there are others that make up huge seafood hampers with crabs, lobsters, prawns and scollops and other cold seafoods usually with cold champers on the beach under the shade of a tree.

The traditionalists still still out number the new way of xmas lunch on the beach, BUT boxing day everyone heads for the beach's with cold leftovers.

You must feel very chuffed with your new find in your great aunt.

All the best everyone for Christmas. :)

Oz Steve

Was in Exeter city last week...and how fine it looked with the old roofs covered in snow....and the frozen edge of the River Exe meandering on the outskirts.

Happy Christmas Maddie.....and hope you have lots of fun with your young clan.

Regards as always....Lee.
