Finally summer is coming to New Zealand.
This beautiful Pohutakawa tree is blossoming just outside our living room window.
Its stunning red flowers are filling our eyes with shine and our hearts with joy.
This majestic crimson tree is not just a sign of the upcoming summer.
It is in fact the iconic Kiwi Christmas tree and has become part of the Christmas Tradition by being featured on Greeting cards, poems and songs.
Around this time of the year, many children in school sing songs about how the native Christmas tree of Aotearoa fills their heart.
Merry Christmas from Kiwi Land!
