Meri Kirihimete

It's Christmas  Day in Auckland. And it's raining. But it'll be a good day all the same. It always is.

We have fewer people joining us this year—we're seven adults and two children all up—so we won't have trouble fitting all of us in the house, where it's cooler, anyway. But, then, we also have a large covered area outside, not that we're likely to use it today.

It'll be a day of food, drink and fun. Like always. So a little rain won't matter, because it'll be a good day. It always is.

Mele Kalikimaka to you. (Interesting the similarity in the phrases.)

Well, they do come from the same root language... Seriously, though, I'm told people who at fluent in Maori can understand Hawaiian, even though they can't speak it.
