Make It A Fancy Dress Christmas
A Southern Hemisphere Christmas - it's a license to go a little bit of crazy
So why not go all the way and get in costume!!
“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
A few years ago my family began this crazy tradition of fancy dress for Christmas lunch and it worked a treat. After all it's hard to argue with someone dressed as a pirate! Of course I go a little "all out" and create movie-poster style invites, theme up the table decoration and yes the music too. Our family christmas photos are a real (embarrassment) hoot.
