Our holidays are meant to start on the 18th, but because we don't do anything at all at school for the last few days (hence the playing Beatles monopoly yesterday), everyone starts holidays a bit early. We go back on the 7th (I think) of Feb. 

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

Oh my gosh. Your holidays are so long!

Do you have summer vacation instead of winter break? What is your school year like?

The school year starts in Feb, and we have four terms in a school year, with a two week break in between them. Our Christmas holidays are the longest, because they are the end of the year.

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

For Them, It's Summer right now. They are in the Southern hemisphere, so they have summer while we freeze and vice versa

Our school year starts at the beginning of February, and it ends somewhere in the middle of December. We normally get 6 weeks of holidays at the end of the year, and 3 two week breaks.

Oh, I know about how the seasons are different in the Southern Hemisphere. I just wondered if they have summer break when it's actually summer, or if they have a break in the middle of the year for the sake of matching us in the Northern Hemisphere.

I'm not sure if it actually matters what time -- apparently it doesn't get that cold ANY time of year in Australia. Paulrus hasn't ever seen real snow before. 

For me, the school year starts in late August. We have a bunch of three-day and four-day weekends for holidays, and we have a few week-long breaks for big holidays (like Spring Break or Winter Break). The school year ends in early June.

It does get cold (and snows heaps on a lot of mountains) in some places, just not as much here in Melbourne (where me and Paulrus live). Gets really hot in the middle of Summer though

The coldest it's EVER been here in Melbourne is -2.8 C (That's 26.96 F), and that was in 1901. One day last year it got to 46 C (about 115 F), and I'm sure it's gotten higher than that before.

That was the highest ever in Melbourne though – 46.6 C

 

Edit: Just realised that kinda looks like -46.6 C - it's not meant to be

Only two more days of school for me!

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

Oh, that's right. Well, here's a picture to illustrate just how hot it was on that day.

That's an actual picture from that day. Thank god for air conditioning...

 

Well, the highest temperature ever in Australia was 53 C (127 F) in Queensland in 1889. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

That's pretty damn hot. Do your weathermen try to fry an egg on the sidewalk too when it's that hot?

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!
