It's beautiful and definitely looks like Christmas!
The temperature is the right one too! ;) But I see it is cooling down in the south as well.
You may as well go with it. No point in yearning for some place you'd rather be. Everything looks nice.
Once used to the cold it isn't so bad either. I mean, hey, we were born and raised in cold winter countries. It is like learning to swim. Once you know how, you don't forget. Laugh.
I love getting a comment from you now and then. Be patient, they will appear, I just have to see first if they are OK to publish. No anonymous any more. I am getting too much spam.
