Today I have included a video down the bottom, well more audio, it is a Christmas song which seems very appropriate right now.  So please play it while you look at the post.

As I said yesterday it is hot here today.  It is currently 37 C (98.6 F) and very dry.  The dry is good, but the hot is not.  We went into the city before lunch and I couldn’t believe how long the queues for the Myer windows were.

Myer QueueAll the people looking away are all the people waiting to see the windows.

End of the QueueThis is near the end of the queue.  It went a long way.  I was hard to understand people standing for so long in such heat.

Elf's giving out informationThere were some elves at the City Square handing out some cards to kids.  I think it had some activities on it for kids to do in the square.

Elf with the MobileHere is another elf taking a small break and chatting on her phone.  Who knew that Elves were up with Modern Technologies.

Portrait with the ElfThis woman gave me her camera and asked me to take her photo with the Elf, and I couldn’t resist taking a shot with my camera as well.  She seemed to be enjoying the atmosphere.

In the SwimThere is the City Square, you can see the tree, next to it is this little water feature. With it being so hot today lots of kids were jumping in and paddling in the water.  It was quite cute watching.  I was also a little envious, I wouldn’t have minded jumping in as well.

Federation ForestThis display is at Federation Square.  It was a rather bizarre display.  I didn’t really get it, though it may not have been a Christmas thing.  There was a sculpture show on, so it was probably part of that.

Relaxing in Fed SquareThere were a whole heap of deck chairs set up in front of the stage and large television.  My husband was sitting in one of them and said they were very comfortable .

The lighting is quite strange, but I have to say, it was kinda of like that.  It was getting very overcast and I think a cool change was on its way.  The light can be very weird it is that hot and a change of weather is happening.

I hope you have enjoyed the daylight version of Christmas in Melbourne, it is hot, it is exhausting, it is busy.  so many people looking for last minute gifts and trying to get away from the heat.

I hope you have found somewhere cool.
