Australian's celebrate Xmas when it is Bloody hot .... we try to be near water though drink very little of it but copious quantities of beer wine and spirits .. Some still ( though diminishing) cook a Northern hemisphere type fare but the majority now have either BBQ's or cold things .. plenty of seafood salads etc.
This is a good little article on Australian Cards say it better than I could.

A VERY MERRY XMAS

    So cute - Merry Christmas Marty :)

    Marty you are a wine-loving Aussie dearest to my heart. I hope we get to meet one day. Merry Christmas!
  3. ozmarty ozmarty, 7 months ago
    Thank you aghcollect
  4. ozmarty ozmarty, 7 months ago
    Valentine It would be great to see you one day if ever down here .. or perhaps a CW convention ( if there is ever such a thing)
  5. valentino97 valentino97, 7 months ago
    Wouldn't that be great! I keep bugging Kerry to set up his museum in Missouri and then have a party for us CW friends. Maybe I'll gently push a little more about that. If I am able to travel to Australia - I will bug you too. Best wishes in 2014!! Otherwise what do you think? CW convention in NY or Chicago? I would go. Sorry if that sounds snobby...it would be harder if the convention was in Australia - but not impossible!! Anyway Happy Holidays Marty!
  6. ozmarty ozmarty, 7 months ago
    Jude & I planned to go to NY for the past couple of years but Family stuff has prevented this....... perhaps next year!
    Would love to catch up with all you CW folk and thank you in person.
    A Museum in Missouri sound like a good title for a book or movie ....an a place I'd HAVE to go to....

    Dearest Oz, have a great time this holiday. Beach Christmas sounds perfect. BBQ sounds better.
    I tried to organize a CW get together but I went about it wrong. I should've just picked a place and said go! NY could be fun, Chicago is easy for me, there were Texas suggestions, California etc.
    Regardless...peace and joy to you and yours Oz. Big hug and a mistletoe kiss!

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, have a great one Marty !
  12. ozmarty ozmarty, 7 months ago
    Hi Manikin,
    Thank you. I think my posts could be more informative guess I'm a bit lazy . The honour is all mine ,to know you and such a fine bunch of people . Even though we most times have never met and are separated by the hemi- spheres we can still call each other friends. What a wonderful thing.
  13. ozmarty ozmarty, 7 months ago
    Thanks PDAM and JaHow my last message includes you two too !
    We will think of you all freezing on the other extreme of the planet while we swelter and have to take solace in swimming in cool water and drowning in cold ale!
  14. reds60 reds60, 7 months ago
    Bless you all and and have a great Christmas!

    Seasons greetings, Marty from down under!
    Keep the sand out of your shorts & the bugs out of your beer! :-)
  18. ozmarty ozmarty, 7 months ago
    And the other way around as well!
  19. walksoftly walksoftly, 7 months ago
    I think that I would rather have sand in my shorts than bugs! :-)
  20. ozmarty ozmarty, 7 months ago
