Christmas is a special celebration for my family because it is the only time of the year when so many family members are with us. We have Christmas at my parent's house because it is close to the beach and the front yard is big enough to play cricket and bocce in and there is still enough room to park everyone's cars. After lunch everyone heads down to the beach to look in the rock pools, swim, snorkel, spearfish and play with the beach toys we all received.
