Christmas in Australia…

What is to say about it. weihnachtsbeleuchtung.jpg

In Austria we have always talked about how nice it would be to spend Christmas at a place where the weather is warm. We thought this would be very nice - far away from the wet and cold weather in Vienna, far away from the Christmas presents hunting stress, far away from the food marathon on Christmas Day, etc etc etc.

Christmas with over 25 degrees Celsius and sun shine, Santa Clauses with boots, beard, gloves and fake fur collars between kids with shorts and flipflops is really kinda weird if you’re used to cold snowy Christmas holidays.

We realised on thing, Christmas isn’t about the place, the weather or the food, it’s all about the people you love and spending some time with them. The stress before Christmas is maybe high, Christmas traditions may seem old and boring, your relatives go maybe on you nerves, but this all IS Christmas.

And you will realise this the very first time, when you sit alone at home at Christmas and you don’t really know what to do.
