We have just had

Number 2 Son

(equipped with his electronic candle)

and Number 1 Daughter-in-Law

to watch Carols by Candlelight televised

from the Sidney Myer Music Bowl

in Melbourne.

Carols by Candlelight is an outdoors concert,

held every year on Christmas Evening

with proceeds going to Vision Australia.

It has been a nice evening with one

of our sons and daughter-in-law.

Who knows, perhaps next year,

both boys and partners will come.

Number 1 Son is spending Christmas

with his New Zealand in-laws this year.

As it is now 1215  on Tuesday December 25

it is appropriate to say…..

to each and everyone.

Definitely time for bed!

    • Must be honest I have never attended Carols. Whilst o the farm we worked so hard to have Christmas Day off…and at those times ‘Bah!! Humbug!” was my favourite expression. Got everyone wound up really well. Hope you are having Happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year

      • Understandable you wanted a day of rest! Yes, so far so good. Stayed up late, just woke up, and my sons and their significant others will be over in a bit. Just a dusting of snow on the ground but very cold out. Hoping you are enjoying your Christmas Day as well.


      • Bowing Day is a United Kingdom holiday after Christmas Day….hence one we have followed. The Melbourne Test (Cricket) match begins on Boxing Day. Correction has just begun, this morning. News services have been predicting that 75,000 people will attend today, dropping back to 50,000 tomorrow as people return to work. My school days memories seem to recall that Boxing Day had something to with wrapping boxing gifts.

        Ahhhh , thank you Wikipedia; A ‘Christmas Box’ in Britain is a name for a Christmas present. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants and the day when they received a ‘Christmas Box’ from the master. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give ‘Christmas Boxes’ to their families.Sep 25, 2018

        Your Chinese thoughts relate to the Boxer Rebellion, I think.
