What else but Christmas warmth?

It is summer here in the Southern Hemisphere. The weather is hot and humid, but somehow Christmas is not complete without a decorated pine tree.

For my family here in South Africa, Christmas is a mixture of traditions: a Portuguese cod fish dish on Christmas Eve, stuffed turkey with all the trimmings on Christmas Day. In many other families it is a braai. Instead of a fire in the hearth, we have a braai fire. Instead of snow we have soft rain. Instead of egg-nog we have champagne (in my family at least).

It is family time!
