    We'll have to have a 'Happy Kiwi_Fairy' day, in honour of you being in New Zealand :icon_biggrin:

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    Last year we arrived in Wellington on Guy Fawkes Night. The fireworks display was awesome - the best I'd ever seen! What a city for viewing them, too - the city wraps around the harbor, so many have a stadium view. Folks launch their own personal fireworks displays prior to the big show, which are nicely visible in the hills opposite.

    I'd be game for doing a Thanksgiving-like feast when we get there, though I vote for shifting it to May - turkey & dressing gluttony just doesn't appeal to me in summer (BBQ and potato salad, on the other hand...). Besides, it could help break up the winter like it does up north.

    Yeah didn't think about fireworks and wellington, I could imagine that being properly awesome from the hills looking down into the harbour.
