Ready to Join?

A tradition in the sub-tropics when "traditional" Christmas is hot and humid and July is chilly and a time to cuddle at home, especially now with Corona, is to do a Xmas in July.
Make whatever you want to eat that you feel is warm, comforting and festive. Turkey if you want. I am going for roast chicken and a chilled bottle of white wine.
We'll meet on Zoom from the comfort of our homes. You will get the link by email in good time to log in for the 7pm start.
Wear red. Put out decorations if you feel like it. And let's all tell a Christmas story.
I will share a tale of when I was 10 years old and traveled from Durban, South Africa to Germany to meet my Polish grandparents for the first time and enjoyed a Polish-German Xmas. You tell your story. If you don't celebrate Xmas in your culture, that's fine. Tell a story of what you do celebrate.
It will be great to also share some sheltering/lockdown experiences. How are you coping? What good things have you found? I have had all manner of fun adventures on Zoom. Maybe you have had some too.
We need to physical distance in Covid times but we don't need to social distance. So let's be sociable — from my home to yours wherever you are.
