Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have Christmas in the southern hemisphere, where it’s always hot? I certainly have because that’s where I’m going for my Christmas holiday this year. I’m going to South Africa where I’ll probably go water skiing! I love water skiing but sometimes it gives me backaches. I might even go parasailing. Parasailing is lost of fun but sometimes it gives me the chills.

In South Africa we might eat steak instead of turkey! This is one of the tasty foods that will be on the barbeque with the other summery foods. I know we won’t have pudding for desert we’ll probably have ice cream can cool down.

How do you think Santa will get to me? Sharks probably would pull him to South Africa. He would need over 500 sharks because of all the presents he has. In South Africa we don’t have chimneys so Santa might have to climb through a window! That’s why I’m going to leave all the windows open on December 24th

What should I wear? I think I should wear shorts, T-shirt, flip-flops, a hat and a swimming costume. I don’t think I should wear long pants, long sleeved shirts and definitely not a sweatshirt.
I could boil to death if I wore a sweatshirt! I can’t wait until I go. I think it’ll be amazing. I’ll tell you where I like better for Christmas when I get back.

Here’s some South African Christmas music!

“Soweto Gospel Choir – Mbube”

Zulu Christian Singing

Dear George,
That sounds very exciting! I bet everyone has lots of questions for you about what it will be like there. We hope you will write more posts while you are there to show us a slice of life in South Africa! I was wondering how the South Africans think Santa arrives? Obviously he won’t be arriving on a sleigh if there is no snow!
Have a safe trip, and look forward to your next post!
Happy Holidays!

    1. Dear George,

      It must be different spending your Christmas in South Africa than Greece. I really want to have that experience too!
