Today is Mid-Year Christmas

Some people have been asking what's this all about? Well coming from New Zealand where Xmas day is hot and sunny (usually) we have a barbecue, outside in the back yard, at a beach or in a park. Sausages, chops, steak that sort of thing. So we miss out on the turkey, Xmas pud and the other trimmings. There's a tradition in NZ to hold a mid-year Xmas party around this time when its cold, wet and more wet.
Now we live in England we enjoy a thoroughly English Xmas on 25 Dec so we decided to enjoy a NZ style one mid-year. Kepples introduced The Present Game to this annual event. Its such fun but more about that tomorrow.....
