Merry Christmas!

December 24th, 2009 by liz

Hey everyone, merry Christmas! It’s a day ahead here at the south pole, so this morning I woke up to Christmas brunch. Yesterday we had a flight come in with three triwalls full of mail, and I got two Christmas presents that I opened this morning. I now have the largest supply of tea and chocolate that I’ve ever seen. One of our winterovers (Daniel) loves tea, so I plan to leave whatever I don’t finish on my tea shelf down here for him to enjoy over the long dark winter. I don’t even think he, as an avid tea drinker, could finish it in one winter, so there will likely even be some left over for me when I come down next summer.


Seriously, thank all of you so much for the packages you sent me. Opening a present on Christmas morning here is such a luxury, and my colleagues and I have really enjoyed the fancy chocolates and tea that you’ve been sending me all season.

On a completely different note, I just looked out the window of the science lab to see 5 people all bundled up in their emergency cold weather gear playing golf. On the snow. People here really know how to make the best of a frozen wasteland to have fun. Happy Holidays to everyone!

    Wow… loved the picture of you in your bather. Guess your youthful experience at Burlington’s “Penguin Plunge” primed you for bigger and better things. Hey, did I read in the paper that a group of women just trekked to the pole recently? Was that YOUR pole? It’s new year’s eve today. Happy 2010 to all of you in the big freezer! See you soon. Suzy
