We kicked off 2012 down here in Melbourne with some stinking hot weather. I know people in the northern hemisphere find it strange to experience Christmas/New Years in the heat, but we're well used to it and have our rituals like going to the Boxing Day shopping sales (they're the kind of sales where you go out clad in a suit of armour and hope you're lucky enough to grab those last pair of blue patent leather shoes for half price that you've been eyeing off all year before some other enterprising chick with sharp elbows gets in your way ;-). Another ritual: heading to the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the boxing day (cricket) test. And of course, Boxing Day is also traditional for heavy traffic on the roads where everyone (well, almost everybody at any rate!) are all headed to the beach/coastal resorts/mountains/interstate/wherever for their annual holidays. We know how to enjoy and make the most of the holiday period down here, that's for sure!
