Well, I live in Florida now, so unfortunately, that "Christmas feel" doesn't even exist here. I grew up in South Dakota though, where it snows for the winter, and you could feel it all around you.
Even though people decorate their houses with lights here, it just isn't the same.
Palm trees, green grass and Christmas lights just don't bring out the holiday spirit for me. Especially when it is 80 degrees outside haha
Yes the christmassy feelin is def here in london! the ads are on tv and the shops are all decorated! i love it!!! my boyfriend just cant believe it when he sees me on here listening to xmas tunes in the background, he laughs at me!! but i know I'm not alone!
and it must be hard living in a hot place at this time of year. It really makes the difference when its cold and dark out! everyone i know hates it as its dark by 4.30pm! but it just gets me in the xmas mood even more!!
my brother was in Oz 2 xmas's ago and he said it was so weird, they had a pool bbq party and were all gettin drunk in the hot sun!!! it was sad to not have him with us just me and mum
but hes here this yr and my dad too so it will be lovely!!
pls reply someone!!!
aww I am glad he's back this year!
I've always wanted to go see London at Christmas time, I bet it's gorgeous.

I miss the snow myself but not enough to move back up north. I feel at home in NC now. I hardly ever go back up home anymore. I have no one to keep my dogs and hubby would not be able to handle Buddy (he's a mommas boy!)
Wishing you many hot cocoa mornings and firesky nights throughout the new year!
