Halloween in Canberra

With the temperatures in the thirties, it’s going to be an indoor Halloween in Canberra this evening. It’s too sunny and hot outside! (And there have been bushfires burning around here all day.)

We don’t have time for much this year, because we’re packing to travel to China at the end of the week.

Ukrainian Christmas

The main Ukrainian Christmas celebrations are the night before, but this 40+ degree too-hot day in Canberra was Ukrainian Christmas.

The first picture shows the traditional extra table setting Ukrainians have for family members who have died.
