I started this post before the New Year but have had major computer hassles, so the posts are a bit slow coming.
This post is going to be mostly pictures - some from Christmas day - what New Zealanders get up to for a Summer Christmas.
The beach near us had lots of families out enjoying the lovely day.
The Pohutukawa trees (our New Zealand Christmas trees) were glorious.

On Boxing Day we visited my brother in Auckland. They had been keen to show us this mural being painted on the side of Hillsborough Playcentre. Look at the detail - even faces in the little windows.
Happy New Year!
