Merry Christmas in 2016
Christmas... everyone celebrates it different. Some celebrate it on Christmas Eve, some on Christmas Day.
Some celebrate a white Christmas with snow in the Northern Hemisphere... some a white Christmas with white sandy beaches in the Southern Hemisphere.
I've been fortunate enough to experience it with snow and with sandy beaches.
Having lived in Berlin; Germany, for many years I have enjoyed Christmas with snow, with the scent of baked goodies in the markets and with all the Church-bells ringing at 6pm in the evening signalling Christmas eve.
And then I've also had the great fortune to experience Christmas on the sandy beaches of Adelaide; South Australia.
I always remember our first Christmas in Adelaide.
We had just finished decorating the tree and had decided to use real candles this time.
As it was quite warm we decided to walk to the beach for a quick swim.
On returning from the beach we discovered all of the candles had doubled over from the heat, very nearly a meltdown.
This year the weatherman forecasts that Christmas Day in Adelaide will be a scorching 40°C.
But no matter where and how we celebrate, lets spare a thought for why we celebrate, being the birth of Christ Jesus.
He taught us to love and connect with our neighbors.
As we celebrate with our loved ones, then let us also spare a thought for those less fortunate than us and see if there is anything that we can do to help out.
With that we at 'Twisted Wire - Jewelry & Accessories' would like to wish everyone; wherever they may be, a very special Christmas and an even more prosperous & peaceful 2017.
