Happy Christmas

Dear Diary,

The boys and Santa Claus under the Yule tree.

Adam;  It's Christmas Day and we're celebrating.  The weather is stunning - sunny, blue skies and hot and blessedly, no wind.  It's the perfect Christmas Day in the southern hemisphere.  You'll notice that I'm wearing my summer kit - shorts, T-shift and jandals.  The other day I saw Santa Claus in shorts!

Staying cool in the middle of summer.
Angelo:  I love Christmas!  We have a special new tree this year, decorated with vintage New Zealand toys, in particular the Marylou doll.  And, underneath, prezzies for the family.  I love opening my gifts to see what great things I was given.
"Check out my festive snowman socks!"
Adam, Angelo & Jesse:  We wish all of our friends in cyberland a very happy Holiday season.  There are lots of reason to celebrate this day, from the summer solstice here at the bottom of the globe, to the winter solstice at the top, from secular holidays to religious ones.  No matter what your preference and however you celebrate it, we hope you have lots of love and happiness today and always!


  1. Sounds like you had the perfect day. My parents said it was a nice day when I spoke to them.

    Wishing you all a very happy Christmas and best wishes for a healthy New Year from Lorraine and Henry

  2. I'm so glad your back. I stumbled on your blog as part of the "rediscovery" of my Gregor doll that I got as a kid in 1972. I hope Adam has had success at building up his wardrobe.

    1. Hi Steve - I'm happy to learn you found us; thanks for posting. Do you have a webpage we can read and follow? We'd enjoy learning more about your childhood Gregor. Jesse

  3. I love Christmas in the southern hemisphere, it is what I grew up to know (we still had the traditional full turkey dinner every year except when we were on safari in Swaziland on Christmas day 1979 when we had a cold buffet in a campsite instead). Just had a damp though mild winter Christmas in the northern hemisphere. Happy Christmas and New Year.

  4. Well, it sounds as if Christmas was good for you all...wishing you a very happy TWENTY SIXTEEN!!
