A chilling thought for Christmas 2004: might the newborn Christ have been hypothermic?

Christmas for us this year will be the usual 20-minute ferry trip across the azure waters from Townsville to nearby Magnetic Island (known locally as “Maggie”), while being entertained by frolicking dolphins. On arrival we will head straight to Alma Bay, blessed with its golden sands, Dom Perignon-clear waters and vibrant coral reef.
