Ok, So We’re A Little Different !


Sunday 12 January, 2014 by Uncle Spike

We don’t do ‘normal’ around here, but we do excel at ‘different’.

There really is no Halloween event or culture in this part of the world to speak of, but Cousin Spike Jnr saw some pumpkins on TV… so we got one from our fruit guy (my crop failed dismally this year) and Uncle Baldrick created this beauty for when he came in from school last week 🙂






He was both happy and scared! So I guess that means it was a passable attempt.

We don’t have Christmas either, so no presents, no tree, lights, music, or holidays from school/work or any of the rest of the happenings some of you will take for granted.

But we do celebrate New Years as I mentioned in my post about New Years Eve. Schools even have Santa visit around New Year (remember Santa comes from here, just a couple of hours south at Demre in fact).


This year we put up some festive lights…
(not brilliant photos, but you get the idea)








And even had a New Year’s Tree…




And small person received a small gift too. We don’t have piles of expensive gifts, just a single small present – but he was just as excited and ever so grateful 🙂

As you may have heard, this year his gift was some Star Wars knickers, which have already proven useful after last Wednesday’s escapade.

  2. I love your restrained gift-giving philosophy. Very practical, too!
