Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2021!

* *

2020 has been an extraordinary year.

It feels we've never been as much seperated and as much united at the same time before.

Socially distanced but united in the care and thoughtfulness towards others and in the hope for and confidence in better times.

The virus has changed our lives and it has changed the royal life we were used to.
A large number of royal events and celebrations had to be cancelled, it has become much quieter and many of us missed the distraction the royal world usually offers, and that in a difficult - maybe even very sad - time just when such a positive distraction was more than needed.

Against that backdrop the coming Christmas and New Year celebrations will also be very different for many of us.

Nevertheless and precisely because of that we would like to wish you and your loved ones an extra Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year 2021.
Stay healthy and confident and let us hope that 2021 will bring us back to normality!

All the best!

Iceflower – on behalf of the whole TRF Team

Happy Winter Solstice! Tonight if we look to the sky, we'll be able to see what has been nicknamed as "the Christmas star". It's been over 800 years since this conjunction last appeared. Jupiter and Saturn will appear so close that they will seem like a double planet or a very bright star.

Here in Victoria we can't see the great conjunction at the moment for the rain that's been pouring for a day and a half! Oh well, better luck in 800 years time!

A very Merry Xmas to everyone and a much brighter New Year. 2021 will be much, much better.

It's overcast and rainy here too. We'd actually have to drive somewhere (a lookout point on the mountain) to see the sky anyways. Too many trees.

2021 *has* to be better for all of us. I'm thinking positive here.

An early Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I thought some of the cat lovers here might appreciate this photo I took earlier on in the month:

I had the pleasure of seeing it last night through our binoculars. It is something that I'll never forget as I never thought I would see two distant planets so close to our Earth.

Iceflower-Thank you for this lovely seasonal message. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Merry Christmas!
Season's Greetings and a Happy New Year to all of you!

I hope that you and your loved ones will stay save and healthy while still enjoying a peaceful Christmas.

We all know that 2020 hasn't been the best of years, and that there are still difficult months ahead of us. But I'm convinced that there are better times ahead of us and that we can look forward to an improving situation in 2021.

Stay save!

In these uncertain times it is wonderful that some things stay the same. It is Christmas morning and we still celebrate the birth of the Chrstchild. There is still love, joy and most of all, Hope this Christmas day. We don't have to be in Chuch to give thanks and there is Skype or Zoom to enable us to share the love of Christ with family and friends.
