I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, Just like the ones I … … ‘ve seen on TV and in books but never actually experienced myself in my entire life! Well, summer is what’s up at Christmas in this hemisphere of the world. We don’t need no beautiful winter scenery, or fancy white snow, or tongues stuck to frozen poles – we’ve got beautiful, vitamin D filled sunshine and beaches full of surf, sand and sun lotion and barbies and backyard cricket – “Howzat!” [Yeah, so stick a prawn on that! – Ed.] Hopefully the scorching heat will hold off until after Christmas but what kind of...Read More
