  1. 1. Christmas in Australia!!! :2 :2013-14
  2. 2. Christmas in Australia In Australia, Christmas comes in the middle of the summer holidays! Children have their summer holidays from early to mid December to early February, so some people might even be camping at Christmas! Because it's so hot at Christmas time in Australia, there are quite often massive bush fires across the country. Many volunteer bush fire fighters are involved in saving people and property and travel from all over Australia to help in other states. Christmas holiday-summer holiday!!!
  3. 3. Christmas in Australia Australians decorate their houses with bunches of 'Christmas Bush', a native Australian tree with small green leaves and cream coloured flowers. In summer the flowers turn a deep shiny red over a period of weeks. Australians hang wreaths on their front doors and sometimes go out Christmas carol singing on Christmas eve. People also decorate their houses and gardens with Christmas Trees and Christmas lights. Neighbors sometimes have little competitions as to who has got the best light display. The neighbors often visit each other to look at the light displays at night. Sometimes the displays are put out as early as December 1st. One street in Sydney raises over $(AUS)35,000 every year for charity with their co-ordinated street display! Decoration
  4. 4. Christmas in Australia In each State capital city there is a large Carols by Candlelight service. Famous Australian singers like The Wiggles , John Farnham and many more help to sing the carols. There are also huge Christmas pageants in each state capital city, that are also broadcast across the country. Most towns and cities have festivals and parades. In some places, there is a fireworks display at the local park. As it is the middle of Summer in Australia at Christmas time, the words to the Carols about snow and the cold winter are sometimes changed to special Australian words! There are also some original Australian Carols. When he gets to Australia, Santa gives the reindeer a rest and uses kangaroos or 'six white boomers' (a popular Australian Christmas song!). He also changes his clothes for less 'hot' ones! Carol and Santa Claus
  5. 5. Christmas in Australia On Boxing Day most people go and visit their friends and often have barbecues at the beach. A famous Yacht race from Sydney to Hobart in Tasmania is also held on Boxing Day. The Flying Doctor Service has to work all though-out Christmas. On Christmas Day the people who live in the outback send Christmas greetings to each other over the radio network. Most families try to be home together for Christmas and the main meal is eaten at lunch time. Most people now have a cold Christmas dinner, or a barbecue with seafood such as prawns and lobsters along with the 'traditional english' food. On Christmas Eve, fish-markets are often full of people queuing to buy their fresh seafood for Christmas day. Australians often have Christmas Crackers at Christmas meal times. Boxing day

  7. 7. Lyrics to Six White Boomers : Early on one Christmas Day a joey kangaroo, Was far from home and lost in a great big zoo. 'Mummy, where's my mummy? They've taken her away.' We'll help you find your mummy, son. Hop up on the sleigh.' Up beside the bag of toys little joey hopped, But they hadn't gone far when Santa stopped. Unharnessed all the reindeer and Joey wondered why, Then he heard a far off booming in the sky. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, On his Australian run. Pretty soon old Santa began to feel the heat, Took his fur lined boots off to cool his feet, Into one popped Joey, feeling quite okay, While those old man Kangaroos kept pulling on the sleigh.
  8. 8. Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, Six white boomers, snow white boomers, On his Australian run. Joey said to Santa, 'Santa, what about the toys? Aren't you living some to these girls and boys?' 'They've got all their presents, son, we were here last night, this trip is an extra trip, Joey's special flight. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, On his Australian run. Soon the sleigh was flashing past right over Marble Bar, 'Slow down there,' cried Santa, 'it can't be far, Come up on my lap here, son, and have a look around.' 'There she is, that's mummy, bounding up and down.' Six white boomers, snow white boomers, Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun.
  9. 9. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, On his Australian run. Joey said to Santa, 'Santa, what about the toys? Aren't you living some to these girls and boys?' 'They've got all their presents, son, we were here last night, this trip is an extra trip, Joey's special flight.' Six white boomers, snow white boomers, Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, On his Australian run. Soon the sleigh was flashing past right over Marble Bar, 'Slow down there,' cried Santa, 'it can't be far, Come up on my lap here, son, and have a look around.' 'There she is, that's mummy, bounding up and down.'
  10. 10. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, On his Australian run. Well that's the best Christmas treat that Joey ever had, Curled up in mother's pouch feeling snug and glad. The last they saw was Santa heading northwards from the sun, The only year the boomers worked a double run. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, Racing Santa Claus through the blazing sun. Six white boomers, snow white boomers, On his Australian run.
