midsummer yule

December 19, 2019

It is stupidly hot here. We’ve already had our hottest average national temperature ever and the hot spell has not even peaked.

And yet I still go on preparing for our Yuletide celebrations.

I’ve been baking gingerbread as we do every year.

I’ve been crocheting winter plants from other lands to decorate our lounge room. Here is mistletoe.

…and holly.

The hotter we get, the more bizarre seem the ancient yuletide rituals brought to Australia from the Northern hemisphere. And yet I bake on…

A Merry Christmas to you where ever you are. May you find warmth or cool according to your need. Thank you for the great pleasure of your company this year.
