This is probably a good time to wish all members of the Arduino forum: Seasons Greetings!

It is Christmas Eve where I am, and the excitement is palpable. Well, almost.

It would be nice to know that Santa is using an Arduino or three as part of his product delivery system, but I suppose we'll never know for sure. smiley-wink

Maybe some lucky kids will get an Arduino as a present, and will start down a path of enlightenment, about programming, electronics, or both.

Best wishes to forum users. smiley

It looks like Christmas here. This morning a nice, crispy -30C, plenty of snow on the ground and hoar frost on the trees.

Seasons Greetings to all and thanks for all the help.

Well I am ahead of you, Nick. You may be a few hours ahead on the Timezone thingy - but in Scandianvia (and Germany) the Christmas thing (familiy dinner, prestent and that) occurs in the evening of the 24th. So I am all done.

(What did I get? Well, at my age, clean underwear is a great hit :-) but I didn't get any, but a new wallet and an almanack (next Total Solar eclipse in Africa 3rd Nov 2013) )

A belated Merry Christmas to all!

NB: (Google is doing a live webpage following Santas parcel route - at the time of writing: 3.664.728.284 present delivered after 190.654 km travel - currently hovering above Casablanca)

Thanks to everyone for their advice in the months I've been here.

We've had rain too; summer thunderstorm at about 30C. We had Christmas lunch in the garden (before the rain came).

We have an unpleasant combination of the two: 3C, steady rain mixed with lightning, thunder, and small hail.  Fixin' to turn to freezing rain later.

Merry Christmas to all, or whatever version of seasons greetings you partake of.

Here in eastern, MA, USA. it started out snowy, so we had a whitish Christmas to start the day.  It has since melted off. But we're expecting 6-12" tomorrow, so that has a better chance of sticking around smiley-cool

We had nice weather on Xmas day (22 C) but it's getting hotter again!

In the Arduino Cave here, it gets quite sleepy in the afternoons as the sun beats down, and the temperature climbs into the high 20s (mid 80s if you use Fahrenheit).

We seem to have quite a bit of turkey left over. It was turkey lunch, turkey dinner, turkey lunch again ... and for dinner tonight? Turkey, perhaps?

Pork chops for us - didn't get the turkey thawing soon enough. Maybe Wednesday, Thursday at the latest.

A late happy holidays! I am sure that smart Santa-believing kids world wide can install sonic rangers and IR detectors to chimney and plate (where cookies are) to catch Santa next year if Santa did get them an arduino this time  smiley-lol
