Happy Holidays Then...

I'm off to my sister-in-law's wedding in a small village called Xhumo, my husband's home. It's been a while since I've spent Christmas in a small village. I wonder if I'll be hearing choirs all night? I once spent Christmas on the roadside waiting for a lift in the middle of the Kgalagadi Desert and I remember listening to the choirs that moved around the village singing; it was lovely. That would be nice... choirs under the stars on Christmas night.
So where ever YOU are -be it the snowy fields of Colorado, the sandy beaches of Australia, the mountains of the Drakensburg or the slushy streets of London or Chicago I wish you a calm, peaceful Christmas Day, defined by what makes you happy not what the instructions on the box we all need to break out of might dictate.
Enjoy yourselves and 'see' you next week!
Peace on Earth.

I'm back. No choirs though. Instead LOUD Gumba-Gumba and we slept in tents. Actually no sleeping with that sound.

Val- it was scorching and Xhumo had no water. Very very hot on Xmas day the day of the wedding. We did have a bit of rain yesterday which helped.

Hope you all enjoyed your Xmas.
