Subject: Christmas / Holidays Away from Home
Hello Friends:

Having exceeded my lifetime quota for cooking turkeys and being THE hostess for Christmas dinner, I will be doing something quite out of the ordinary this year. I am taking off to Australia to visit my daughter who will be a few weeks into a 'working holiday.' It will be a very DIFFERENT holiday season for both of us.

Your experiences and advice would be really helpful.

1. What do other Ziners do when their long-standing, holiday traditions are changed by travel?

2. Is a barbeque on the beach REALLY what Aussies do for Christmas dinner?

3. What would you do if you were breaking with tradition and happened to be in Sydney for Christmas?

I can't wait to hear what my travel-wise and ingenious Zine friends have to say.
