First post of 2005

I'm with a terrible headache, and it's not a funny way to spend first days of New Year. No, it wasn't caused by a hangover, but for trying to read all oz_magi stories again now that authors are known. I'll do it later, though - lots of applauses for maverick4oz, without her this amazing way of celebrating Oz wouldn't have happened, we're a lucky fandom for having her!

I stayed at home at New Year Eve watching Icaraí beach fireworks from my window. They were fabulous and I took many photos, as soon as I've the film developed I'll post some here.
At December 31st morning, though, I went to beach with my mother to offer flowers to Iemanjá, African goddess of sea. It's an old tradition here, even people who don't believe it use to do that. I said a little prayer while doing that, showing my gratitude for last year and asking her protection once more through 2005. I hope she can protect me during surgery, next Friday!

tracy_rowan, are you there? At Christmas me and my father went to visit my grandmother and we had to park the car at a mall - its decoration was fantastic, full of moving beards!! I was with my camera so I took few photos - I remembered you love beards and just *had* to do that!!



They used bears to decorate their Christmas tree












This one was the cutest thing, Dargie, everybody wanted to touch it - no wonder there were tons of "don't touch toys" signals everywhere!!!

Thank you! Yes, it was a really great day (it's morning on the 3rd here now) - a very good birthday, indeed.

And I'm intrigued by your Christmas pics - it looks very wintry. What kind of Christmas do you get in Brazil? Is it warm? Winter themes aren't very popular in Australia around Christmas (as you would imagine) because it's so darn warm! (Although the department stores still play, "i'm dreaming of a white Christmas" - what on Earth is that all about???).

Dude, we're in the same part of planet, so it's so hot here than in Australia - but people keep thinking about Christmas as it is at US, Europe... there are places in which you can find fake snow, and all Santa Claus have to dress those heavy clothes, even when it's so. fucking. hot. Unbelievable. *g*

We're getting sensible around here. Not *too* many Santas wearing big heavy clothes. Some of them wear shorts and t-shirts (always with the big beard, though). And there's a lot of tinsel etc but snow themes aren't big at all.
