With this beautiful Afrikaans song about a Summer Christmas, I wish you a Merry Christmas 2018 and a very happy New Year! May you all be blessed!

These are the lyrics of this song, translated. This is the only song about Christmas in Summer. All countries in the Southern Hemisphere celebrate Christmas in Summer.

Enter in quiet peace filled night
beneath the Southern Cross
Lend now your ear this starlit night,
to whispers from the past.

Do you hear how softly the bells
are chiming, in ancient dialect
Even the evening’s starry silence,
on precious history reflects.

Can you also feel the warmth of His love,
as we celebrate the day
God loved us so much He sent his son,
no other gift as great.

CHORUS

Christmas nears, Christmas nears
Bow before the King
Grant by Your grace in this great land
A bright summer’s Christmas Lord.

In the meantime, I did follow Carlsen’s chess game online and now the London Classic is on. To be honest, I didn’t have time to follow the Classic this year in so much detail as before. I almost went there this year, but bad weather totally got me to change my mind.
