    It just turned Christmas Eve (December 24th) over here in mostly sunny California in the good old USA. Do you folks over there have Christmas stockings, eggnog, presents wrapped in tacky paper, Santa Claus, and...he he...out of control Christmas shopping?

    I don't suspect anybody, other than a few scientists on the south pole are having a white, snowy Christmas morning right at this moment

    It's kind of weird when New Zealand celebrates the New Year since we here in the states are many hours away from that point and very few people are drinking then...but if they are, the cops will surely catch them ;)

    Yes, all of the above except eggnog. It's 9:50 PM now, so just over 2 hours to go.

    We have had unseasonably cold and wet weather recently. A couple of days ago we had a hailstorm that covered the ground in some places, I think that's about as close as we'll get to a white Christmas.

    And I guess we should say Merry Christmas to all the Fijiians out there, since the International Dateline passes through Fiji, if I remember correctly.

    Merry Christmas to you aswitcher, say g'day to the Poms for me :D.

    You are not missing much hot weather, apart from Perth there aren't too many places expecting a scorcher for Christmas Day. The beers will still taste just as good though :cool:.
