PhotoHunt: Warm - Hot Christmas Day



Giancarlo, my oldest son aged 20, on Christmas morning. The only snow here in Australia was on the Christmas cards. It was a warm, comfortable morning.

This is my latest entry.

evening Leslie

oh thanks so much for your nice comment, you know I love the coal mine thing, I have been down a deep coal face this week...ending up in making tassels or dollies or whatever, oh yes of course I know Midsomer, in fact my mum sent me the latest brand new one on dvd, we are just waiting to watch it

the 'hot' pic is fantastic, hmmmm the 20 yr old is gorgeous, you better keep him locked away!! haha

I saw the photohunt was 'warm' I joined up ages ago thanks to you but never have quite gotten around to posting one, i probably couldn't think of a better description or photo representation of warm than a young aussie in a santa hat...gotta love that

Hi Leslie, great photo theme selection! Christmas is great in any weather isn't it. I love your design too!

Have a great weekend Leslie!

Annie said...

Very cool take on the theme. I forgot that Christmas comes in warm months for you!

I hope you have a great weekend.

Anyway, that's a beautiful shot. I hope he was well dressed below.. haha!! :P

Liz said...

It must be strange having a warm and sunny christmas. I love the way you've titled the photo just perfectly!

Sue said...

We had snow for Christmas, but otherwise I prefer the warmer weather :) Great pic!

Orable and Charlie said...

I do hope the Sard works. I have been through three cream-coloured carpets now, two of them Stainmasters!

Photo Cache said...

LOL! It seems like Christmas day was a long time ago I can't remember how was mine :)

Zoolatry said...

Lovely, especially the sentiment on the picture itself...

Bengbeng said...

would love to experience some snow myself sigh... sweating buckets even while i am typing

Carver said...

What a fun shot of your son at Christmas. We almost never have a white Christmas although we do get snow before and after it sometimes. Happy weekend.

SASSY MOM said...

That's a cool shot! Same here in -- we never have snow and mostly all seasons are warm.

have a great weekend!

ancient one said...

Yeah, I always forget that Christmas comes in summer for you. I can imagine that he was indeed a warm Santa!

YTSL said...

Teeheehee at the thought that Giancarlo opted to wear a warm (and festive) hat but no shirt! ;b

gen/entry said...

Oh that was a lovely Christmas to all of you right? Nice one ...We have snow in January but nothing in December.

I cannot imagine a warm Christmas, temperature-wise. But the day is always warm with family.

Heart warming too, no doubt.

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Great moment, and a really warm one.

Have a great weekend.

Colin Campbell said...

During my trip to Canberra I learned that you have freezing winters there. Ours are cold in Adelaide, but nothing compared to my childhood in Scotland.

Michele said...

Gosh, I cannot imagine Christmas without snow... I have never seen Christmas without the white stuff. I would be sad... that would be hard to get used to, that's for sure!

Great post!

Cindy said...

A warm, homey Christmas brings out the kid in everyone, doesn't it?
Cute photo, and I really like the sentiment it portrays.
My hot shot

Dragonstar said...

I find it so hard to believe in the warm Antipodean Christmas - it takes a real effort of concentration! This is lovely.

Maureen Hayes said...

Interesting take on the warm theme!

Happy Photo Hunt!

Pat said...

Would love to have warm weather for Christmas!

Happy Weekend.

girasoli said...

I found it strange at first with the no snow/everyone dressed in shorts/etc. but now I love it! I do miss snow occasionally but wouldn't trade Hawaii for a cold weather place to live.

Tammy said...

Great picture!

Digital Polaroids said...

Haha! I'm Argentinian, so I know about "warm" and even "super hot" Cxmas!

PastorMac's Ann said...

How funny. Christmas is Christmas no matter what the weather.

Great shot for The Hunt.

Bush Babe said...

Warm in many ways Leslie!!!
Fab setting as usual

Anne said...

Thanks for your comment on my video! It sounded better than I was expecting. I was surprised that I wasn't more nervous (not that I'm complaining about that!)

Anne said...

Ooops, posted my comment before I added that I love your photo. Very sweet. And what a contrast from our Canadian Christmases!!
