Adelaide's Royalty

Last Thursday saw the crowning of the 2009 Christmas Pageant's King and Queen; Matt Nolis and Marie Antoniou.

It has been tradition since 1940 to have a Pageant Queen, originally chosen from the staff of John Martins who ran the pageant. Since 1996 when SA's Credit Unions became sponsors of the event, there has been a Queen and six Princesses selected from staff of the 6 Credit Unions.

This year men have been included; we now additionally have a King and five Princes.

Sorry I have not been posting regularly. I have chosen to ease of for a while to try to get outstanding work done around the home. Going out to get photos is time-consuming. I will still try to post a couple of times a week.

Do you celebrate Christmas in July as some New Zealanders do? They say the cold winter makes it more appropriate. Some even have a tree.

Ann - I certainly don't; one Christmas a year is certainly enough. Some people do have July Christmas dinner celebrations, but it is not that widespread. I do not know of anyone having a tree though.
