Christmas on the other side of the world

There is no Christmas this year Bobby.”   
Vicky, his elder sister laments. She explains that she had over-heard Lucy`s mother telling auntie Chipo that she had over-heard her husband talking to Ziyepi the kraal head that the bread delivery  van was stuck in the mud across Nyamachesi River.
Even if they pulled it out, the river is in flood.   It is Christmas Eve.
