Look Christmas Fir Tree
In vain for December snow
It is that time of year again! Rather than a specific prompt object I thought I would go with a general title and let you select an object that epitomizes the season for you. If you do not celebrate Christmas then you might like to share another object related to your own traditional celebrations.
In Perth the average temperature around Christmas is 90 degrees or so. Snow is non-existent and these days most people spend the day around the pool (if they have one) or often go to the beach.
We will be having a brunch at our local beach and then back home for a cold lunch of ham, turkey and seafood.
We used to have a very traditional English style Christmas lunch when I was younger and I still remember feasting on roast turkey and vegetables, hot ham and lashings of gravy, the sweat running down our faces in an age without air-conditioning followed by a flaming Christmas pudding. These Christmases were wonderful but it seemed that Australia one day woke up and realized that it was actually boiling hot at Christmas and someone had the radical idea of eating prawns and crayfish instead and now everyone goes with whatever they fancy.
Best wishes to you during this season and thanks to those who joined in last week with the prompt. “Keyhole”
