Christmas Cheers

The Ghost of Christmas Present is a jolly giant with dark brown curls. He wears a fur-trimmed green coat, a wreath of holly and icicles on his head, and carries a torch that looks like a cornucopia. He sprinkles warmth and good cheer from it in his travels to and from all the festivities. A feast appears also wherever he goes. (Today I managed to do that too!)

It was a scorching day in Melbourne, with a temperature of 36°C, so I certainly wasn’t going to wear a fur-trimmed cloak. Instead I have a skirt and top that both tie with big bows at the back, and my wreath is of velvet leaves. I also carried a vintage green umbrella as my sunscreen – it’s sort of the antithesis of the Ghost of Christmas Present’s torch! But everything is a bit upside down in the Antipodes.

My family and I – all 27 of us – had a lovely day; I hope you do (or have done) too. Cheers!
