Lovely! I like Emily Dickinson.
Sure do wish we had Christmas in winter...and snow! xx
An interesting remark, Lynda. You're used to having it warm at Christmas. But I hope you can experience it someday.
It's Christmas in summer here! Although many (including me) do the hot roast dinner (turkey, vegies, etc) and pudding and custard, many opt for barbeques, salads, picnics, the beach and cricket :) xx
Yes, it's so surprising to me, that someone who grew up in the southern hemisphere would be wishing for a northern-style Christmas! (It's snowing gently right now, by the way.) :)
