  •  Warm and sunny (8+ / 0-)

    at least it is in Tonga at ~= 21 degrees south latitude.

    Being raised in the Northern Hemisphere it does seem a little strange to attend a summer barbecue on Christmas as I did in New Zealand.

    Happy Easter to you j.. q..!

    and Easter is our 24th anniversary, married on Easter 1989

    •  i went to a christmas barbie (8+ / 0-)

      in australia.  it was the followup to the traditional english christmas dinner, which reminded me of harry potter.

      our pastor mentioned spring this morning, and i was surprised.  the same theology applies worldwide, of course.

      •  Ours did not mention Spring (7+ / 0-)

        but built his sermon around the sense of smell, possibly the first sermon I have heard based on the sense of smell.

        Met one of my fellow researchers at church-works at a different campus in the same organization.  Will see that person again tomorrow at our council meeting.

        Good point.  Theology does not depend on the weather.
