In Australia, we celebrate Christmas a little differently compared to our students from all over the world.
The most obvious difference here is the weather, as our Christmas holiday’s fall during the southern hemisphere summer it will not be a white Christmas – unless you count the white sandy beaches!
On Christmas day, its tradition to open presents in the morning and then cook a big lunch/dinner with the whole family in the afternoon.
Boxing Day is my favourite day of the Christmas holiday period. Boxing Day is usually spent on the beach or close to a BBQ in a park playing games and enjoying drinks in the sun with family and friends.
It is famous for being the first day of the cricket match between Australia and a visiting country, so for Australians there is always a TV close by to watch this test match.
