Family Traditions

Christmas in NZ generally consists of gathering around the BBQ with family and friends, and ensuring you are well coated with sunblock in case you catch too much sun while eating steak and sausages! And Skyping those relatives overseas of course, to wish them a Merry Christmas and tell them how sunny it is!

In Wing this would have been a bit different - less sun, less heat, but probably still a comparatively bountiful feast. And their family were likely mostly in the immediate vicinity, not scattered around the globe.

This year I'm turning things upside down and heading north to the other side of the globe, Shropshire to be precise, to spend Christmas with my grandfather and brother. I've been keeping a dubious eye on the temperatures, and I hope I will at least see some impressive frosts and snow to compensate for not being able to feel my toes.

I hope that, wherever you are, you too will be able to spend time with your family and friends enjoying a few days off.

The next update to the website will probably be around 7 January, once I'm back in NZ and had a chance to fully defrost!
