I wish all my friends around the world a

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2014!

When I was living on the northern hemisphere I was used to cold weather during the Christmas season – including pine trees decorated with colorful baubles.

Well, my Christmas at Thanda is very different – hot – humid – and certainly with no pine trees 🙂

So the flowers of the Sickle-bush have to do for Christmas decoration around my place. They look beautiful and I thought I use a closeup as this year’s holiday image!

With my very best wishes from South Africa – Christian

PS: The holiday greetings on the picture are in isiZulu and English!

PPS: And for all the animal lovers among you 🙂 – below is Thanda’s Christmas Holiday image!
