    We are on a site near Saumur, it's 31c in the shade and there is a C&CC rally here. Their theme is Christmas! so the vans all have lights on, snowmen decorations, the works. Tomorrow night is carols and mulled wine....
    What a great idea and some really nice people.

    I went to South Africa a few years ago just before Christmas. It was very strange walking round in shorts looking at all the xmas decorations. Apparently a lot of people there also celebrate xmas in June so that it's cold

    Are you sure that you have not had sunstroke and are hallucinating?

    We generally spend each Christmas in Florida (as we own a villa we rent out there) I still find it very odd to be sitting by the pool in the sun on Christmas day. Plus everyone there goes the cinema on christmas night - its packed!
    We only go then as we both work in the construction industry and have a shut down at work meaning we use less leave from work going then.

    Christmas doesn't feel like christmas without the cold so seems odd to me to have a second Christmas in June!

    We and another couple had a Christmas in Estartit in June a few years back including a full Christmas dinner, crackers and presents. I can't remember why we did it only that it seemed a good idea when we first came up with it in December the previous year. Still, we enjoyed it. :party2:
