I’ve lived in Australia most of my life. It is a hot, dry place. I don’t mind most of the time, but during Christmas I really, really prefer snow and log fires over sun, sand and sunscreen. I know this might mean I’m thrown out of the country, but I simple prefer a Northern Hemisphere Christmas.
Last year, we spent Christmas in Austria. It was lovely and crisp. We walked through the Christmas markets sipping warmed mulled wine all rugged up in coats and hats. My idea of bliss.

This year we will be having Christmas near Noosa in Queensland. Noosa is beautiful, lush and green, but you know…there’s never any snow.
Which do you prefer? Do you love waking up on Christmas morning to flurries of snowflakes or do you prefer running down the beach into the waves?
