Merry Christmas Everyone
By Alan Hargreaves-Oracle on Dec 24, 2005
Well it's Christmas Eve out here and it's about 40 degrees Celsius!
Every year we go back to the town I grew up in and the kids participate in a tradition that has grown up since we were kids. We do a Saint Lucia procession with all of the kids visiting each house and singing to people. Over the years people have started to contribute lollies for the kids to have an after procession party.
This year, my boy (Jacob) got to be Santa and carry the sack into which the lollies were put.
About half way through, he started complaining that the sack was getting too heavy to carry! You should have seen his hair when he took the suit off when we had finished!
Anyway, best wishes from us here "down-under".
