    All the same to you and yours Bells.

    I don't know if it's "transplant shock" (first year in our new townhouse) or what, but my wife and I are just kinda... I dunno, we're not really feeling it this year. Could have to do with the fact that it's damn near 50 degrees and has been raining nonstop the last 3 days as well XD This isn't how Pennsylvania Christmas is supposed to go... where's our snow!

    Christmas where I live is really hot and this year has been no exception. It is stifling here at the moment. And very humid. It makes it tricky to get into the whole spirit of things when anything and everything is so exhausting due to the heat, but we have to for the kids and this year has been a particularly bad year, they need festive. We all need festive. And frankly, the looks on their faces when they open their presents is all I need to forget everything.

    That is my "festive"..

    While the Christmas tree that can probably be seen from space for all the lights (thankfully no one is epileptic...) and the fairy lights everywhere helps set the mood, it's my kid's that are the main ingredient for me.

    Their faces and their little bodies trembling with excitement makes everything worthwhile.

    Thankfully we have air-conditioning, so Christmas lunch won't be spent sweating into our seafood...

    I hope you get snow (send some our way!) and cheer.. And I hope you both have a good and safe Christmas, Kittamaru.

    Here in Brazil too, but it is still dry where the reservoir is. Still less than 8% of capacity yet Sao Paulo has had 3 or 4 terrible rain storms - Streets flooded parked cars by the 100s with water inside up to the seats, and some washed on top of others or into the river. - not much joy for the owners; but most of the tree in the apartment complex (on some of the highest ground of hilly Sao Paulo) where I live are light covered and Santa arrived here in a bright red jeep a few days ago to give out presents to the under 10 years olds living in our complex.

    Hope you and other regular posters have reason to look back on 2014 with some pleasure.

    Happy winter solstice, especially for those in and beyond the northern temperate zones.

    It dinged about an hour ago in my neck of the woods. Guests have gone to bed, I am watching a storm forming the south of us.. Hoping it cools things down somewhat and gets rid of some of this stifling 100% humidity, while sipping a glass of wine.. Hoping we don't get large hail...

    So, Happy New Year folks.

    Happy New Year James!

    Hope the weather improves down there for you. A friend of mine not too far from you has evacuated just in case, at the request of her fireman husband, because the conditions are apparently "ripe" as she tells me. So take care! Stay safe.

    Thanks, Bells. This time of year is always a bit scary when you get days of \(40+^\circ\)C (that's 100+ Farenheit for US readers) and high winds. Yesterday, we had a few small bush and/or grass fires relatively nearby, but they were all brought under control. Fire danger level was rated "extreme" - just one step below the "code red" catastrophic level corresponding to the Black Saturday fires.
