Attracting attention!

I remember as a child being excited about going to see the Christmas lights.

I never would have have thought I would grow up to find a street being lined with Christmas wool. The crowds have been flocking to a nature strip to take photos of trees covered in wool. It’s a strange concept but I believe it works. I think in this day in age with people being swayed into looking after the environment wool could be a way forward… Maybe?

I’m not actually sure if this could actually take off. But so far I think for this leafy street, it’s doing the right job. In a snow-covered street it may not have quite the same effect. But that’s what I like about being a warm climate for christmas. We’re different to most everyone else. We still eat big meals, exchange gifts and spend time with family. But we get to do it in the heat, under the sun and at the beach if we so desire.

An Aussie Christmas is not what you hear about in traditional carols or stories and most people from other parts of the world don’t quite understand it but I think that’s why I love it. I’ve experienced a Christmas in winter and I have to say it wasn’t quite the same. It was more like being in a story-book or fairytale land which on one hand was great and to have to experience just once was pretty cool. But I much prefer Australia. I’m usually hanging at the beach just chilling and I love that! 

I can’t believe it’s nearly that time of the year again! I’ve had such a whirl-wind of a year but I’m really grateful to soon be starting the new adventures that I’m sure 2013 will bring!

To Christmas wool – will it be the new ‘thing’ for Christmas? It sure is attracting attention!

Signing off – happy end of the year!
