A Christmas Break Thank you! 1

With Christmas time approaching, Honiara, like all towns, is starting to enjoy the holiday season. At the international airport yesterday, the customs line for returning residents stretched out onto the tarmac, with Solomon Islanders from abroad coming home to celebrate with family and friends. Similarly, over the next week many expats will fly out to spend time with their families across the globe.

As we all wind down for the silly season, so does The Pineapple Post. The website will take a break over Christmas and will re-open in January. If you have any questions or stories to submit during this time, please keep sending them to pineapplepost@hotmail.com. Everyone is welcome to contribute!

I’ve loved working on The Pineapple Post this year and so to everyone who has read an article, signed up for emails or become a Facebook fan: Thank You! Your encouragement has meant a lot to me.

A huge, heartfelt Merry Christmas thank you to all those who contributed to the content of The Pineapple Post in 2014. The website only exists because of the generosity of writers and photographers who share their work. Thank you for helping to promote life in the hapi isles and for letting my little hobby thrive. I hope I’ve captured you all in this list!

  1. And a special thanks to you Jackie Eager – the Pineapple Post has become a “must read” for all expats, especially those considering a move to the hapi isles. A very Merry Christmas to you and Brendan. Cheers, Lynn Tebbutt
