Some people assume that fantasy writers do not follow mainstream religion and they are either wiccan, fae, atheist or agnostic. I believe Christmas has something for everyone and it doesn't matter whether you are a Jedi, Rabbi, Whovian, Hindu or Monk that we can all the spirit of thankfulness and giving.
I thought I might share with you today, some of the festivities I share with my family and young halflings.
We have also been giving Christmas cards of us at the Supernova Convention to teachers, family and friends.
We have driven around to various Christmas lights displays, one night of which was with a 90-year old author whose eyes lit up like a small child when she said it was the most fun she's had in ages. We have visited friends in the nursing home, giving out homemade treats. We have popped into the neighbours and delivered home-made rum balls and White Christmas slice.
Being Australian, we have also spent time in the beautiful sunny weather, at parks, pools and beaches. No snow for us over here in the warm 30 degree Celsius heat.
Now there are only 2 more sleeps until family arrives from interstate and the big man in red sneaks in to fill up the kiddies' stockings.
Our Christmas Day will be spent with family and friends playing in the pool and sharing some yummy food and thoughtful gifts.
So cheers to peace on Earth and good will to all peoples.
Have a peaceful Christmas, cheers Kasper and the Beaumont clan xx
