Morning SharonThose trees creeping up on the manor do look rather spooky - very Birnham Wood!I walked through Dalek-free Martin Place in the centre of Sydney a week ago just as they were erecting the huge Christmas tree here - or rather I should say 'assembling it'! Not many 21 metre high Norweigan Spruces in the southern hemisphere ... Photo in link above
the town's xmas lights were strung up first week in october! My friend and i are planning to hold out toddlers close to the shop ceiling and take a picture of them with the humongous ceiling decorations.
The strange weather has prevented thoughts of Christmas so far. It was unseasonably warm, then quite cold now it is back up in the mid-60s. The weather is predicted to turn back to normal for the upcoming holiday - Thanksgiving, here in the states.I won't be in full-tilt Christmas mode until I take my niece into downtown Chicago to see the Christmas decorations. It's become a tradition - one which I hope continues through her upcoming teenage years. There's nothing like seeing the wondrous twinkling lights of Christmas through a child's eyes. I'm very much looking forward to it.
Joanna - would love to see a picture of toddlers with humongous ceiling decorations!And Dan, ditto - a photo of the Chicago lights, please.
