Sharing the spirit of white xmas…and my second snowman


UPDATES:  It is reported today, Dec 20, 2010 that Northern Ireland recorded its coldest night with a low of -18C at Castlesderg in County Tyrone. The previous officially accepted record of -17.5C was set on 01 January 1979 at Magherally (near Banbridge) in County Down.

TRIVIA:  Which country provides Britain with a Christmas tree for Trafalgar Square in London (UK)? It is NORWAY since 1947. It is a gratitude gesture for Britain’s support for Norway during World War II. The tree is a Norwegian Spruce (Picea Abies) which is more than 20 metres high and 50-60 years old from the forest in Oslo. The 2010 Christmas tree is lighted on the evening of 2 December and the Carol-singing program for this year is already fully booked which takes place from 7-22 December from 5-9pm.

  1. Buti pa dian white christmas… dito sa disyerto, hmn… walang christmas. 😦

    Happy Holidays Sir! ^^

    • Oo sa simula maganda ngunit sa katagalan ay madumi at madulas. At syempre masyadong malamig, kadalasan kung walang pupuntahan, tambay lang sa bahay. Ang una kong snow ay noong Nov 2003 sa Helsinki, Finland. Ang sarap talaga ng pakiramdam – parang gusto mo gumawa ng halo-halo o maiz-con-yelo. Merry Xmas at maraming salamat sa pagdalaw!
