Beautiful Neve.

Americans make such a big deal of winter wonderland type weather for Christmas that most of us forget about those south of the equator who experience Christmas in the warmer months. So I have to ask...How's the summer weather down there in Australia?

Merry Christmas to you as well.

Janet

Re: Seasons Greetings to All

As I take five minutes out of my hectic Christmas preparations to soothe a burn, I realise that possibly this burn is designed to make me stop and reflect a little.

I recall as a child, loving Christmas with the excitement of visiting the Christmas Tree on Christmas morning to travelling to my aunt's each year for the extended family Christmas Dinner. My aunt possessed the most amazing Christmas Spirit. Her efforts, and the magic she managed on Christmas Day each year was absolutely awe inspiring. Trully to me, she was the Matriach of Christmas.

Now as an adult I am trying to weave the same sort of magic for my family and friends, but it is so very easy to be caught up in the hectic pace that sometimes, we fail to appreciate the joy in the simple things, and to tell those for whom we care, that we do in fact care.

So take 5 minutes to recharge, and remember that Christmas is a time of happiness and cheer, and you will indeed have a Happy Christmas as the happiness and cheer you exude will be intoxicatingly felt by others.

So have a wonderful and happy Christmas and a great New Year in 2007.

Cass

Beautifully said Cass!!!!

It'll be 33C on Xmas Day so I'm thankful my daughter has both a pool and aircon

The photo for the card was originally taken in September in our State's (Western Australia)North-West - they're desert roses. Artwork done in Corel Painter and finished off in PaintShopPro.

Keep safe everyone...!
