“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
Hello dear friends and welcome to the 15th day of jo's advent calender blog hop..
here is my "happy santa" for you all..
i made him with my some left over scrap...

making me smile :)
The theme question of this year is "stockings,sack or something else"?
i wanted to share the "south african"christmas with you...
---- South Africa is in the Southern Hemisphere, Christmas comes
in the summer. So there's lots of sun and beautiful flowers in full
The schools are closed for the Christmas holidays and some people like to go camping. Going carol singing
on Christmas Eve, is very popular in towns and cities. Carols by
Candlelight services are also popular on Christmas Eve. And many people
go to a Christmas morning Church Service.
The Christmas meal is
either turkey (or duck), roast beef, mince pies, yellow rice &
raisins and vegetables, followed by
Christmas Pudding or a traditional south african desert called malva
pudding(sometimkes also called LEKKER pudding).People also like to pull
Christmas Crackers! The meal is often eaten
outside in the summer sun! If it's really hot they might even have a
barbecue or 'braai'.
In Afrikaans (one the languages spoken in South Africa) Happy/Merry Christmas is 'Geseënde Kersfees'...
Santa Claus is also known as Sinterklaas & Kersvader....
so dear friends, Geseënde Kersfeesto all and dont forget to be good for the rest of the year!
