Christmas in Summer!

Hello Christmas friends!

I thought that since it is summer in the northern hemisphere I might share some summery ways to celebrate Christmas!

As much as I wish it could stay winter all year long, I am looking forward to spending our Christmas holidays at the beach this year.

Christmas Down Under is so Hot! We don't have looks more like this!

So, how does Christmas Down Under look? Do you like the idea of a hot Aussie Christmas or do you dream of white Christmases?

Best wishes,


Please join me each weekend for the Say G'day Saturday Linky Party! You can also visit me at PINTERESTTWITTER


  1. I would love to spend Christmas somewhere warm and sunny - just once.

  2. Loved all the summer Christmas photos, but the one with the blue tree was my fave! I live in the Phoenix AZ area and we don't have a snowy Christmas, but we sure don't have summer either. It's usually around 68-72 degrees on Christmas day. If it's in the 60s we light the fireplace! Enjoy your winter...

  3. Hi Natasha, I sent in a request invitation to Pinterest. I love all of the inspirational photos. Just gorgeous! Hope I can figure out how to use it. Have a great weekend!

  4. You made me remember back to the time we took a cruise just before Christmas and that was unique. Your photos were wonderful. Thanks.

  5. Loved your photos. I love snow and the chill in the air, although I would probably enjoy one warm Christmas somewhere.

  6. oh my, beautiful photos!!! and I love your music --- I have not heard that version of 'walking in a winter wonderland' before -- off to find it on youtube!
    Hugs to you and have a great week!

  7. I absolutely love, love, loooooove these photos. So beautiful & inspiring. Hope your winter isn't too harsh :)

    Faraway hugs,

  8. By the way, voted for your photo :) You have such a great blog

  9. Hi Natasha,
    Loved your photos. Christmas and beach together? Wonderful!!!

  10. Excellent post...I loved all the pictures. Your blog is a delight...and a reminder as well to keep the mind-set of Christmas all the time. We are celebrating our Independence Day Happy July 4th!

  11. I am so glad you commented on my blog or might never have found you. I love Christmas and am a collector of old fashioned Santa figures and images.
    I have posted lots of pictures of them in the past. Come on by and have a look.
    I haven't had breakfast yet and the picture of the roast chicken, ham etc. is making me crazy. Looks so delicious.

  12. Olá Natasha,lindo blog,parabéns !
    Sou do Brasil, apaixonada pelo natal. Não sabia que dia 25 de junho é o dia de Rudolph.
    Se puder me faça uma visita que ficarei bem contente.
    Abraços natalinos.

  13. Thanks for joining my first Bunny Hop party!

    I think that one picture hinted that Santa might be "skinny dipping"... with just his hat and flop flops left in the sand ;)

    Also, are kangaroos called "Boomers" or "Roos" or both?

  14. Hi Natasha! This was wonderful - hadn't heard this before. Had no idea male kangaroos were called "boomers." I'm dreadfully ignorant of the Australian culture, I'm afraid!

    We spent a couple of Christmases in Florida near Ft Myers with my in-laws. It just wasn't the same without snow, cold, and fir trees! I love your idea of Christmas in July!

    See ya!

  15. Neat post. :) I've always thought it was cool that Christmas in Australia was a "summer holiday", even though I live in North America.

  16. I love christmas at the beach but Oh wouldnt it be nice just to have one 'white christmas'!!

  17. I clicked on this page and the music started up and I was immediately in the Christmas spirit. It is only two months away! I love Christmas! :D


Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself...
Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas," 1976
