Christmas and New Year celebrations on station are special times and this year at Mawson was no exception. We decorated the red shed with every tree, bauble and scrap of tinsel we could find and helped Gav, our chef, in preparations for the day.
Christmas Eve was spent finishing off the week’s work and wrapping that ‘Secret Santa’ gift for under the tree.
Christmas Day we enjoyed a scrumptious brunch then met upstairs near the tree with Santa and his fetching mystery helper. Each present given with a hug from Santa’s lap — and a great deal of hilarity!
Late afternoon we sat down to a Christmas buffet meal with all manner of treats including a whole table full of delicious desserts.
Needless to say we missed our family and friends at this time but celebrating in good company, we weathered it well.
