Beautifully done, Colin.

We won't be at home for Christmas Day this year, so our tree will stay in its box.

I'm sure most people living in the northern hemisphere would find Christmas in Australia rather strange; no snow, temperatures in the 30s Celsius, the sun shining brightly, and crystal waves breaking on golden sands  8) (How's that for lyrical prose?)  O0 Of course, the bit about the waves and the sand only applies if you live, as I do, near the coast  {-) {-)

Anyway, a very Merry Christmas and happy New Year to all on the forum  :-))

Peter in Australia (where it's actually raining at the moment)  <:(

OHHH. Peter........you rotter. ;D ;D
 brings back happy memories of my years of teaching in Aus, and spending my two Christmas's on Bondi and Batemans Bay, eating Turkey cooked over an open wood fueled barby.
Tasted crap, but the cold tinnies made it all seem an adventure., %% {-) %%

Thanks, Neil. I will spare you a thought as I put on some more sunscreen  8) {-)

It is actually a glorious morning right now (7.22 am Sunday local time), thankfully, as it's our model boat club's Christmas sail day and family picnic today.

All the best,

Peter.

Here's the wife efforts so far! As she has collected Christmas ornaments for the 35 years we have been married mostly the smaller miniature ones.  And the last few years she hasn't displayed them. She is going all out and full bore this year.

The main tree along with a meter tall one


Main tree and some of her Holiday Barbies


The meter tall one


A half meter tree

Having about 14 plastic storage containers of Christmas Items ( larger sized tubs) I told her she would have to stop adding to her collection as I'm getting to old to be hauling them down from the attic. 2 1/2 story house. And shes slowing down putting them up. Will have to start, in August  {-) {-) {-) Will continue when it done ok2

Last time i had a christmas tree the cats ripped it apart in half the time it took me to put it up, So We gave up on that idea. Also with a price of around 20 per meter...

Our last christmas tree is now five years old, four meters high and is enjoying life in our frount garden. Just waiting for the day we come home from work to find some git has chopped it down and done a runner with it.

Dont get me wronge I do like a good tree in the hallway at crimbo time, and the ones show look good.

@peter fitness. So what do you have for dinner, the full roast or the big BBQ?
My mother visited my brother one year many years back and did the full English Dinner, turkey, spuds the lot. The first time he had a Christmas dinner in twenty years. Made him cry, bless him! {-)

Ian, we normally have a mostly cold Christmas dinner, all the cooking is done in the preceding days. We have ham, cold pork, cold chicken and turkey, various kinds of salads, prawns and perhaps, a hot potato bake, together with appropriate liquid refreshments  ok2 . Years ago we did have the traditional hot Christmas dinner, but in these enlightened days, most people do as we do; when the temperature is 30+ Celsius, the kitchen is not a good place to be, with the oven going full bore  O0. The barbecues come in the days after Christmas, together with a cold beer, or 2, or 3, or more  :-))
Bring it on  :}

Happy Christmas,

Peter.

Looks like the trees are coming along nicely. They are shining outstandingly, so far not a bad one in the bunch. The better half's are all to be congratulated.
