Note to self: plan to live in the southern hemisphere from october to march, in the northern hemisphere from april to september. Alternative plan: live in a subtropical country all year long. Caveats of the alternative plan: deadly animals, hurricanes, etc...
  
No thanks for me. We live in a brutally hot/dry summer climate from June ~ October.  Winter is always very welcome for us!
  
Just saw a newspaper article: big thing here this year is dressing up pineapples as Christmas trees.
