Im dreaming of a....


Lately I've been having the realisation of how strange it is that here we celebrate our Christmas in summer. While most of you are starting to get festive with dreams of a snowfall while you sleep, my excitement for Christmas is full of plans for camping, trips to the beach, barbecues every night and a fruit bowl full of all my summer favourites. Funny isn't it? I love my Christmas being in summer but I also have the hope that one day I can make a little trip and have a white Christmas somewhere like New York or London!

  1. I live in Germany and despite the fact, that we don't have a white christmas every year, it's hard to imagine for me to celebrate christmas in summer :)! But it's the same with me: I would love to have the opposite experience one day...

  2. I feel the same as FeeMail. It's hard to imagen that people have their summer while it's Christmas. While in Belgium, I'm snuggeling underneath the blankets, Australia (and other countries in the soutern part) have a hot summer. Weird :D

  3. You should definitely travel to New York for a white Christmas. You'd love it! Bundling up in mittens and a scarf while drinking hot chocolate and walking from store to store in the snow buying Christmas gifts is the most amazing experience ever.

  4. I am from north hemis. but we don´t have snow XD because I live in Central America, tropical countries, the only thing here are the winds and sometimes rain, but sun all the time.

    one day in NY ;)

  5. I've never realized that before. Sorry you don't get to enjoy the snow! I hope one day the opportunity presents itself! :)

  6. I for one would quite like to see what Xmas is like in the sun!

  7. Christmas would be wonderful in London if it did actually snow, instead of the grey drizzle that we're normally blessed with! Saying that, I can't imagine christmas being christmas without a crackling fire and a steaming mug of tea, snow or no snow.
    But if you insist I'll swap one northern christmas for your summer one whenever you're ready ;) beautiful photos by the way, thankyou for sharing xx

  8. Oh, I was just thinking about this same thing today! I live in Australia, and as it is warming up I am getting excited and hopeful for a beach Christmas =)

  9. Haha I would love to have Christmas in the summer! It's always so cold! It's fun as a child but then it turns into time for shoveling :P But it's still fun :)

  10. Ooh I was thinking about this earlier today (Alf from Home and Away was on a cooking programme in the UK today) and they were talking about having BBQ's for christmas, and I have always wondered what it's like having christmas in the summer. It's amazing that our christmas reminds me of getting bundled up in jumpers and cozying by the fire with family, but its completely the opposite in Aus! I'd just love to experience Christmas in the summer haha!

  11. it's SO funny! tim had to get used to white christmases. he's also used to spending christmas at the beach.
    white christmases ARE magical....but you gotta think - after christmas, the snow isn't so magical anymore ;)

    so enjoy your sunshine-y christmas!

  12. It should be very funny, I would like to have a Christmas like yours... Here in Mexico it doesn´t snow so I don´t have a white christmas and I want to spend christmas somewhere it snows :/

  13. My dad is applying for a job in NZ, which is unfair because I was born in Wellington and they moved me back to the UK before when I was 5 months old. They have always promised me a christmas turkey on the beach!

  14. I live in Sweden and I couldn't imagine a Christmas without snow, I remember about 5 or 6 years ago when we had a really hot winter so the snow came late and there wasn't any snow on Christmas at all. :(
    The last couple of years we've had great winters though! Last winter the snow arrived in October and lasted until April and we even had a little snowfall in May but that was brutal.

  15. Infact it' strange to think you are in summer in Xmas:)

  16. It's weird to think of Christmas being anything but cold and stuffed full of turkey. I will definitely have to experience a hot Christmas at some point in my life though. We could swap christmasses one year? ahah

  17. Yes it's really great to experience both. I've had white Christmases in NYC since this is where I was born and currently live and I've spent warm Christmases in Argentina and Mexico. The sweet thing about a white
    Christmas is that when the snow if falling and the trees are all lit around the city it makes you feel like your in a snow globe. It really is a magical experience.

  22. It snows here on Christmas.

    Several years ago, it snowed two feet on Christmas Day. (knee height) We were all dressed in our nice clothes, and warmly, and were putting many packages into the car so we could go to our round of family gatherings.

    Our Great Danes escaped through the garage and went off gallivanting-- trying to escape us while we chased after them in our nice clothes. Through knee-deep snow.

    The roads were super icy out and we had to wave down some folks who were driving quickly through our neighborhood-- so that they wouldn't run over our dogs.

    When the guy stuck his head out of the pick up truck, to watch us chase the dogs, he hollered, "Is that Rudolph?"

    I'm pretty sure I gestured rudely with my finger.

    :)

  23. I know exactly what you mean. I love Christmas in the summer time but I seriously dream of a white Christmas every single year! One year... in New York, preferably :)

  24. I love xmas in summer too, because the 4 month summer holidays for me is just full of festivities, road trips, the beach, bbqs, new years, and running around outside. Wouldn't trade it for the world, but I agree it'd be pretty magical to experience a white christmas!

  26. that must be so interesting...but that's what christmas feels like to you, so if you were here in winter it may not feel so right :) it's interesting how we each experience things, I would love to have a bonfire on the beach during christmastime!

  27. or Oklahoma... we do Christmas pretty cozy here in the country. ;) plus there'd be baby cuddles.

    miss you x

  28. Yeah, it is rather strange when you put it like that! But the idea of planning bbqs, beach trips, camping sounds amazing to me. Often we have the week off work for Xmas but the weather is so cold/snowy/frozen that it's difficult to go places and visit people. Think you guys might have the right idea! Maybe we should swap? ;)

  29. That's so weird! I can't imagine having Christmas in the summer... I guess it all depends on how you will raised.

    The best thing about having Christmas in the winter, though, is having something to break up the monotony of the can't-go-outside-because-it's-too-cold/snowy days. :D
