Yesterday, we popped down to Mairangi Bay’s Santa Parade. As mentioned in an earlier post, it really  wasn’t feeling like Christmas with all this sunshine and warm weather, so we thought it would be good to catch a bit of the Christmas Spirit at the Santa Parade.

Two out of 3 of us loved it. Mrs. E was even dancing at one point. It was a lovely community event organised by The Lions (similar to the Rotary Club) in the UK and various community groups, schools etc.

Unsurprisingly Santa turned up… We had an ace time, well all of us apart from The Spaniel who just seemed to be in one almighty grump… (see the pic of her below).

Good fun, the Santa Parade helped ease us into the Christmas Spirit. All we need now is some snow (perhaps a tall order), mulled wine, mince pies and a Christmas Tree! Given we were not allowed to bring Christmas decorations with us, I suspect we decorations may be a minimum this year (we do have twinkly lights though!).
