Christmas in Wisconsin: One expat reminiscing

Don’t mind me. I’m not going home for Christmas this year and was just struck with a spontaneous, crippling bout of homesickness as the holidays approach :P. Occupational hazard of living the expat life over here in Singapore. Please. If you can. Ship me some snow.

Anyway, enjoy my glorious photos form last year’s Christmas back home in Wisconsin.

And then there’s the whole polar vortex thing? Like 40 below zero Fahrenheit for several days. You may remember that being when a bunch of people burned themselves throwing boiling water in the air to watch it freeze instantly–which it does. Maybe I’ll post my video later :P. In case you don’t live in a place that gets RIDICULOUSLY cold…if you leave your car sitting outside, your gasoline can freeze and then starting your car can be a bit tricky. Which is why you need……. HEET!

Seriously though, I’ll be fine :P, just had to reminisce a bit.

      Thanks! Yeah, I really am missing snow right now, in case you couldn’t guess :P. Though, of course, apparently Wisconsin doesn’t have snow right now either….

    Love those photos – we don’t get much snow here in the Gulf Islands in B.C. and I too miss the cold crunchy white stuff at this time of year.
