So, its just few days before Christmas. Sydney is full of Christmas decorations. One can hear the carols performed by various musicians almost on every corner. There is Santa Claus or two too. People are doing their last minute present shopping. Out of nowhere a “Hare Krishna” chant is heard. It intensifies as the group of very colourful and obviously happy group of Hare Krishna followers pass me in the street. They look fantastic in their vivid outfits, performing a well rehearsed routine. Hare Krishna and Jingle Bells all combined together – just another day in Sydney.
As we were sitting down to Christmas Eve supper, which in our tradition is a bigger event then the actual Christmas Day a lost dog was scratching to the door, possibly attracted by the smell of the food. Children found the dog very entertaining and discovered it was well trained and to their amusement it responded to many commands.
While I was watching them play in front of the house I went a big further down the driveway to check out some unusual light. Once my vision was not obstructed by all the houses around I was treated to this Christmas Eve sunset.
