South Africa is hosting the 2010 Soccer World Cup
and all our government schools enjoy an extended winter vacation.
We enjoy the festive atmosphere in our host cities.
Brightly coloured South African flags flutter on cars
and fans blow vuvuzelas (long plastic trumpets) on the streets.
Shop displays are bright and colourful.
The soccer theme is everywhere!
We enjoy our school holidays and lazy mornings.
And to top our winter Soccer World Cup memories,
we had snow fall to our house!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most South Africans
as we seldom see snow,
let alone play in it,
and we HAD to build a snow man!
Soccer World Cup style!
What wonderful winter 2010 memories!
