The last time our family was together for Christmas was in Bangkok in 2012. Β This year, our numbers have expanded, and we’re all gathering in Wellington, New Zealand.

If you celebrate Christmas, where will you be on the day?

  1. Have a blessed holiday and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year! Love the interiors of St Mary’s and the second St Joseph’s! I will be enjoying a Christmas BBQ today and the start of the Sydney Hobart tomorrow. Enjoy your NZ holiday πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸŽπŸŽ„

    • The interiors of those churches were so very vibrant, a feast for the eyes of which my photos show only a tiny morsel! Happy Christmas to you, too, Lisa. As for the Sydney to Hobart, even I have heard of that. How exciting for you to be there for it!

  2. Thanks and the pictures are beautiful .. It’s funny but most churches seem to be built out of love and devotion to God! Any God but definitely faith. A place where we can all share. I think sometimes it separates people and that part is sad to me. This Christmas visit at least 3 others be they a temple or a mosque or another version of Christianity like Lutheran or Roman Catholic or Ukrainian … Blessing to you all and sending love too! Rick =)
