After 5 years of bahumbuggery TMB and I have decided to celebrate Christmas. He was bought up in a differently religioned household, whereas I got to enjoy advent calendars and presents.
What does Christmas mean to us now? Well, it's summer and that means holidays, ease and leisure, "the delights of being alive".
I am working on Christmas tree alternatives with this arrangement. Tatara looks a lot like holly after a few chardonnays and Oleria is almost pine needle like. The ric rac brings in some much needed colour. I went out to Spotlight looking for their Pohutawaka print but it was all sold out. Guess I'm not the only one thinking of summer time substitution.
