Meri Kirihimete (Merry Christmas)

Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. Well, today is the day Santa Paws arrives to give presents to all the good animals in the world, like Me and Nellie. We have been such good maremmas this year, that We are certain the We will receive something when all the presents are opened.

As loyal readers know, Me and Nellie live in sunny New Zealand and Christmas time falls during the first month of summer. It is a time when a lot of Kiwis (New Zealanders) go on holiday.

treeWhen mummy was a little girl (back when dinosaurs roamed the earth) New Zealand christmas traditions were much based on English winter practises. Christmas cards had robins and winter scenes on them. Christmas lunch was a turkey and stuffing and everyone had christmas pudding for desert. Nowadays, things are very different. You are more than likely to be invited to a barbie than a sit-down dinner (for some reason mainly severed in the middle of the day. Christmas cards are more likely to have pohutukawa trees and Father Christmas in beach shorts on them, than the traditional English Christmas imagery. Off Me and Nellie go. It is time for our morning dinner and daddy is doing something very interesting in the kitchen. He says he is preparing pork belly roast for lunch. That sounds very interesting. Maybe Me and Nellie might get a tasty treat.
