I really wanted to write a blog about Australia and Christmas but I really had no idea where to start. Christmas is one of those sacred times with family yet we all celebrate it so openly. I wanted to bring you all Australia’s traditions with a mixture of some of my friend’s traditions. Because, what is it really like having Christmas in Australia? I was a bit stumped on where to start and if my family really even had any traditions. Since I moved out of home just over a year ago, I make sure that I head over to the parents place on Christmas Eve so I can wake up with the family on Christmas Day. As I walked in the door with my washing basket full of presents, I started to remember all of these things we do every year. Like every year my Sister and I make a gingerbread house (we are very average at it) but I have so much fun doing it. Or my Mum always uses my Nan’s gravy jug (to remember and include her in the festive day) and it plays as a centre piece on the table. This is just how my family’s traditions are. They are different. They are what we have created over the years and what we will continue to do.
