You too Ron. What are your plans over the holidays? Where will you be? I spent one Christmas down at Moke Lake between Queenstown and Glenorchy, one of the best Christmases I've ever had - no electricity, no running water, just the lake, the campervan, a big fire and an eski. Happy days..

Sounds nice, but what's an eski?

Yes, tell us what a typical New Zealand Christmas is like for you!
