Merry Kitschmas!

I went over to Pakuranga (another Auckland suburb) today to collect a painting a relative did for me a few weeks ago. One of the neighbours in her street has ... an inflated Santa, trembling in the wind. I was delighted that I had my camera.

OK, maybe these are common where you live, but it's the first one I've ever seen.

On the way home, I took another photo of the famed Kitschmas house, also in Pakuranga. This place has been decorated every year for at least ten years, and each time there is more. The Mary and strangely red-faced Joseph are new.

The place is lit up at night and Greg jokes they need the power pylon you can see nearby. Once again, this isn't normal for here.

And here's the lovely painting I got!

It's of the Bay of Islands, where we often go on holiday. Isn't it gorgeous? And not at all kitsch. :-D
