Julafton vs Christmas Day

No Comments Sverige vs Australia, Typically Aussie, Typically Swedish

Christmas is a very different tradition in Sweden and in Australia. To start off with it’s in the middle of the darkest winter in Sweden and in the middle of summer in Australia. I’ve not yet celebrated Christmas in Australia so I can’t say that I know from first hand experience what it’s all about but instead of rugging up in front of the fire, Aussies have barbeques and go swimming and in my mind it looks something like this: ;)

Both Swedes and Aussies have both Santa Claus, Christmas trees and decorations. In Sweden Christmas decorations also include red tulips, Poinsettias (in Swedish julstjärnor) and red or white Amaryllises. Read more

Aussie Jingle Bells

1 Comment Typically Aussie
Dashing through the bush
In a rusty Holden Ute
Kicking up the dust
Esky in the boot
Kelpie by my side
Singing Christmas songs
It’s summer time and I am in
My singlet, shorts and thongsOh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
Jingle all the way
Christmas in Australia
On a scorching summer’s day
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
Christmas time is beaut
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a rusty Holden Ute

Engine’s getting hot
Dodge the kangaroos
Swaggy climbs aboard
He is welcome too
All the family is there
Sitting by the pool
Christmas day, the Aussie way
By the barbecue!

Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
Jingle all the way
Christmas in Australia
On a scorching summer’s day
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells
Christmas time is beaut
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a rusty Holden Ute

Come the afternoon
Grandpa has a doze
The kids and Uncle Bruce
Are swimming in their clothes
The time comes round to go
We take a family snap
Then pack the car and all shoot through
Before the washing up
