Although that’s what movies have accustomed us to, not everything is cold at Christmas. So with the 30 degrees that Australia usually has for these times, the holiday is handled a little differently.
Some families choose to dine al fresco on the beaches of Bondi Beach, picnic, play cricket, and even some surfers opt to slip into the sea dressed as Santa.
In addition, since 1937 in Melbourne, the “Carols by Candlelight” has been celebrated. It is a caroling show that spread throughout the country, and was rooted in the fundamental traditions of Christmas.
One more detail? There they were more realistic with the sheltered Santa Claus and combined it with the “Swag Man”, the typical local farmer in hat, shirt and shorts, who in this case handles the gifts to the smallest.
