It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Ok, not really. I mean even in Oakland it was at least cold enough for a sweater and the occasional cup of hot chocolate. But I spent yesterday evening at the beach in a tank top and flip-flops. And last weekend while hanging the holiday lights, I sweated through two rounds of SPF30.

It just doesn’t feel as Christmassy, but we’re trying… Our holiday card’s been designed and ordered. The lights are now hung–two neighbors have said how festive the house looks! And the gingersnap dough is chilling in the fridge, just waiting to be baked. Some things you can take anywhere.

And then I saw this today, which I have to admit, made me smile.Yes, they do Christmas a bit different down here.
