In a park by the water in Wellington there is a large display of lights in the shape of a Christmas tree. Our family took us to see it.
The lights change colours and make different patterns all the time.
The city council provides bean bags and blankets so that people can lie warmly underneath the lights tree and watch the colours change. We were there quite late at night and the bean bags were full of people enjoying the view and the atmosphere.
In the same park were some special telephone boxes. We saw that they were specially set up so that we could talk to Santa! We told him that we have been very good backpackers this year, and he said that we were already on his "nice" list.
It is strange to us to be getting ready for Christmas in the middle of summer instead of the middle of winter. It's just as much fun, but with much less snow than we are used to.
