Kia Ora!!!

I am from South Auckland, New Zealand :D :D :D :D I love New Zealand for it's beautiful scenery and fresh, clean environment. I live near the farm areas and I love seeing all the animals on my drives through my town.

Fun Fact: New Zealand has three official languages. They are English, Maori and New Zealand Sign Language.

GO NEW ZEALAND!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I usually don't see a lot of things from New Zealand, so I got excited when I saw this :D I'm not from New Zealand, but most of my mother's side of the family is, and I have visited once when I was younger. I remember we were driving on a country road, and it was entirely blocked by a huge herd of sheep. And something that us Americans find weird is that Christmas is celebrated during the summer in NZ and Aus. :shock:

Hahaha... there are 27 million sheep in New Zealand so it's quite common for the road to be blocked by sheep or cattle :lol: :lol: Even though it is summer for Christmas in New Zealand, this year it rained :( :( :( I've always wanted to go to America for Christmas because I really want a white Christmas, it sounds cool..... Did it snow at Christmas where you lived?

Sadly, no. :( It doesn't usually snow very much where I live in PNW unless in the mountains, but it rains A LOT. One time the water flooded over the sidewalks and up the driveway. :lol:

Wow!!!! We don't get THAT much rain....

Just because I'm bored, here are some "fun" facts about New Zealand:

1: The capital city is Wellington
2: New Zealand was the first country to give women the vote
3: New Zealand has a population of 4.5 million
4: The first person to climb to the top of Mount Everest was a New Zealander (Sir Edmund Hillary)
5: New Zealand has no snakes
6: We drive on the left side of the road
7: Sadly there are more vending machines in Japan than there are people in New Zealand. Japan has 5.52 million vending machines, we only have 4.5 million people.
8: More people die every year in New Zealand from playing lawn bowls than scuba diving

I'll probably post some more when I think of some more
