Christmas Aussie style...

...is celebrated right in the middle of our hottest month, so no snow and sleigh rides for us! We still have all the glitter and razzmatazz of Christmas, but instead of snow we are more likely to have a tropical storm, flooding, a cyclone or a bush fire! Nothing quite says 'Christmas' in Australia than Santa arriving on the back of a fire truck...
But this year it looks like we will be blessed with clear blue skies. Christmas is also within 3 days of our longest day of the year, so it is full on sun, surf, sand and funtimes. Christmas trees on the beach are often seen, and our wonderful lifesavers always have a lot of Christmas cheer on the day...
Christmas Day for us is tomorrow! Yes, being a few hours ahead does have its advantages. Though, I think the New Zealand bloggers sneak in before us even. So, sorry to all my American blogging friends, you'll have to wait an extra day for Christmas.
So while you are all rugged up, we're down here spending time at the beach and swimming...
Our Christmas lunch may be a barbecue in the backyard, or a picnic on the beach. We have Champagne instead of eggnog...
...pavlova with fresh fruits instead of Plum Pudding...
...Santa arrives on a surfboard...
...and our snowmen are made out of sand...
Christmas in Australia is a time for family, fun and friends. Enjoy your Christmas wherever in the world you are and I hope you have the best of fun as we do here...J
