AmeriNZ 62 – Holiday Time

Episode 62 is now available, and it’s free no matter where you get it from. You can listen to it or download it through the player at the bottom of this post, or subscribe for free through iTunes here (you must have the free iTunes player installed). You can also listen to it for free through the player on my MySpace page.

This is my last podcast for the year, so I start today by describing what a New Zealand Christmas is like for us. Then, I’ll tell you a bit about my trip next week, and then after comments, I have a few special remarks.

It’s now summer in New Zealand, so Christmas is very different than what I grew up with in Illinois (no snow or cold). The Christmas we have isn’t necessarily the same as other Kiwis, but it’s not all that different from theirs, either.

I have all my arrangements sorted for my trip to Chicago next week.

After comments, I have some special remarks for this last podcast of the year.

I probably won’t have another episode until Tuesday, January 15, 2008. I’m hoping to be able to record some audio while I’m away, and maybe I’ll be able to post it before I get home to New Zealand, but don’t count on that.

Results for the poll question, “What’s your favourite Christmas/Holiday special?”: A Charlie Brown Christmas was chosen by 5 people, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer by 2, Santa Claus is Coming to Town by 2 and None of these by 3.

Thanks for listening this year—I truly appreciate it! I’ll be back with more in the New Year.
