Xmas in Oz

Symbol of Christmas in Sydney CBD

Symbol of Christmas in Sydney CBD

It’s kind of weird at Xmas here, cos it ain’t very dark and snowy. Us Pommies know that Xmas should be grey, cold, dark, and miserable – with transport chaos all round. We compensate for this with vast displays of garish Xmas lights, and saying ‘Have a good Xmas’ to strangers.

They are a bit slack at the garish lights here (although there are some), and people talk to strangers anyway – SO HOW THE HELL AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW IT’S XMAS!
