The Whole Kit And Kaboodle
Holidays are here, with the whole kit and kaboodle it brings! For most, holidays mean winter, snow and cold fun. Sledding, snowmen and fun snow games right in your backyard. Australia, though, has warm months for Christmas which is not so suitable for frosty amusements. It is the height of summer but aside from that most Christmas trimmings are present. The lights on each house and yard try to outdo each other. They hang wreaths, put Christmas trees, sing carols and all ‘tis the season trappings.
The warm weather invites for more toasty pursuits. Overnight backyard and even outdoor camping with family and friends. Fishing with mates, boxing day festivities that feature a celebrated Sydney to Hobart Yacht race and barbecues in the beach for the whole family to enjoy.
Gift giving is also big among Australians. It doesn’t matter if it was store bought or hand made, they are treated equally. Children’s gifts are held extra special. Encouraging children to stay home, fun school holiday activities kits are a sure way of making kids learn a hobby and utilise their creativity. The end product is not as memorable as the effort and love put into making it.
A big Christmas lunch rather than dinner of seafood or the traditional turkey with trimmings. Or a fun day outdoors or several days of camping enjoying the holiday break. A day at the beach is not far off the programs it is the best way to cool off on summer days. It is one of the most popular spots to spend Christmas. Some folks start with church then get together with some mates for a BBQ. there would be one or two that will have gift-giving or exchange gifts
The sunny season is about the only difference with the celebrations between the snow-covered nations. Christmas cards and trees are usually covered with representations of snow. And all around the world, the thoughts for Christmas remain the same, peace on earth, goodwill to all men.
