I am starting to have quite a nice crowd of blogger-fellows in Australia. If most Aussies are like them, I definately have to visit someday. Soon.
Because of you, Aussie-friends, I frequently “translate” time when I am working on my blog. It is becoming natural, and I can easily say when you are about to go to sleep, or when the sun is rising up, at the other end of the Earth.
But it just hit me tonight (don’t ask me how I got to that thought) that Christmas is celebrated in the middle of summer in Australia. Well, actually, at first, I was thinking about pictures taken recently, after some sort of a snow storm, somewhere in Australia. And I wondered… “Oh, it really is winter over there. I wonder when they celebrate Christmas…” VERY closely followed by “Woo! I know they celebrate Christmas the same day we do… But… That means…. That they celebrate it during summer??
I celebrated Christmas without snow, five years in a row (while I lived in Guinea) but there never was a winter…
Now I wonder about Aussie Christmas traditions.
(time to be disappointed) (lol)
