Unlike most of the world Aussies get to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Day in Mid-Summer.
Accordingly, we do things a little differently here…
Although we do still keep a couple of the Old World traditions…
Forget the egg nog or hot toddies and crack open a cold beer or bottle of sparkling wine while waiting for Santa to arrive while being pulled by his flying kangaroos! What? You thought Qantas’s logo the Flying Kangaroo was just a marketing ploy?
Maybe build a sandman on the beach?
or go for a jetboat ride on the harbour to cool off a little…?
before chowing down on Seafood and Salad…
Or the traditional Christmas barbie?
and then settling down after all the excitement to watch the traditional 5 day long cricket match and 4 day yachting race beginning on Boxing Day! 🙂
However you celebrate this Holiday Season I wish all a very safe and Merry Christmas and a better 2018 than this rather unsettling year turned out to be.
Lets do all we can individually and as one single species to make it better!
Happy New Year!
