Merry Christmas (from a beach in Africa)

The traditional Christmas one always sees is a white Christmas with snow, a fireplace and all kinds of wintery things.  But more than half the earth actually has a summer Christmas where Santa should probably be wearing board shorts and slops while driving an open top vehicle and enjoying the sun.  When Santa isn't going around handing out gifts he must surely go somewhere and that somewhere is a beach in Port Elizabeth close to the Willows Resort.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the Christian Port Elizabeth Daily Photo readers and their families a  Merry Christmas and a very blessed day.


  1. I guess you can blame Charles Dickens for that image. We had a green/grey Christmas this year. Stopping at the beach seems like a good idea.

  2. Just wanted to wish you a very happy Christmas!
    Looks like you have perfect weather (22C)!
    We have had no snow here since October 29th, so no White Christmas.

  3. Hope you had a great day. I envy you the sun. We had a very frosty start, but a cool sun did sort of filter through later in the day. All the best for 2012. Diane

  4. I rather like the image of Santa in shorts and slops. Actually, I even more like the idea of me in shorts and slops for Christmas. Enjoy!
