“Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling.”
quote by writer Edna Ferber
We are due to drive to England for the holidays, so there are no Christmas decorations at home in France this year. Feeling very unfestive and not very christmasy at all, my human thought a Santa Sunrise on the beach would bring us out of our ‘humbug’ mood and into the warm spirit and feeling of Christmas.
My human as a Beach Santa!
Other than one fisherman who just smiled and waved at us, we were alone on the beach. So, we enjoyed a little festive jig about on the seaweed trampoline!
Toffee’s human gave me a very cool super soft santa collar, so I didn’t have to wear a Santa hat…phew!
A little later, I couldn’t quite believe my eyes!
In fact, I had to stand and stare as my girlfriend black labrador/ german shepherd Ezey arrived on the beach….with more human Santas!
Group Santa hug!
Errrr..No thanks! I’m not so keen to join these very strange Santa humans!
Then it was mince pie time!
My human followed this yummy modern mince pie recipe …these pies kept all the Santas smiling and munching quietly!
This meant Ezey and I could have an extra long play and run around.
Time for Christmas cracker pulling and sharing the awful jokes in them!
I was looking out to sea and admiring the view, when I heard the human-pup Santas laughing in the background. What were they up to?
Santas thought it would be fun for daredevil Ezey to go up the slide!??
Obviously, I supervised to ensure fairplay!
Now, I wonder how they are all going to get down? Heehee!
We love your Santa collar!! What a fun outing you all had!! Have a good trip to the cold north!!

Looks like fun! But now I’m wondering what “cracker pulling” is? That must be a Christmas tradition in France, because I have never heard of it!
My Missus loves all the photos, especially the first three ones. She thinks your hu-mom looks very chic!
Have a wonderful Christmas in England! 🙂
PS: Zola, can I have your mailing address please? I would love to send you a card.
christmas crackers – they are an English tradition…you pull them to find a bad joke to read out, normally a very useless gift and a paper hat to wear when you are having your christmas dinner! xxxx
Don’t you have Christmas crackers in America, Brenda? You are missing out on some truly bad jokes and ill-fitting paper hats if so.
The beach looks lovely and you seem to have had lots of festive fun.
Where in England are you heading for?
