Guest Blogger: Christmas Down Under!

11 Dec

Hi Everyone! We want to introduce our first guest blogger all the way from Australia. Her name is Leanna. Check out her post.

Hi! I am Leanna. I am 12 years old and I live in Australia. Christmas is very different in Australia. Why might you ask? Mainly because of the weather! Australia is in the southern hemisphere and because of that it is opposite to all the other countries in the northern hemisphere. It’s summer here and our summers are very HOT! I am talking about 40 degree heat! But there is one main thing that makes Christmas the same to many people and that is Christmas is a time of giving, sharing ad spending time with family and friends. In Australia we would normally celebrate christmas on the beach or by the pool or somewhere with air conditioning! We wouldn’t be sipping on egg nog or sitting by a fire roasting chestnuts, we would be drinking ice cold soft drinks waiting for our meat to cook on the barbecue! We also do the traditional turkey or baked ham if we are celebrating indoors.
Australia’s Christmas is just as exciting and fun as any other Christmas celebrated in the northern hemisphere only you’re probably going to get a tan instead of a itchy jumper on your skin! I think I prefer a hot summer Christmas rather than a cold, frosty one. Which do you prefer?
