  1. I think I would struggle with the idea of a hot Christmas Su! Mind you, the way things are going in the UK, that may be a reality soon, it’s 14C here today! Lol!! If I don’t speak to you over the next week, I hope you and all your family have a wonderful Christmas 🙂

    • Thanks Andy. My cousin in Kirkcaldy was saying the weather has been a bit mild! I love the whole traditional Christmas thing, and really enjoyed doing the big festive thing when we lived in England in the 90s. Here, most of the traditions I associate with Christmas (huge Xmas dinner being the main one) doesn’t make sense. Cooking and eating turkey and ham in 90% humidity is madness (I have done it once). This year I’m letting a Vietnamese restaurant take the strain and going out for lunch! All the best for a great Christmas to you and yours. 🙂

        That makes sense to go to something like a Vietnamese Restaurant for Xmas Day, I know I certainly wouldn’t be able to cope with a full Christmas dinner in that heat and humidity!!

  2. Having grown up in tropical Panama, hot Christmases feel very right and perfect to me. There was nothing like being away a college in the snowy eastern US and then spending my entire Christmas vacation in a bathing suit. It was always a time of sun, fun, and reunion with all my buddies.

    • My mum (raised in Scotland) never got used to summertime Christmas, and used to get really down, but it’s “normal” for me. Having said that, I really did enjoy the Christmases we spent living in England. I can see how when it’s cold, indoorsy weather, eating rich food makes more sense.
