You know, I'd really like to be in Australia for one Christmas, just to experience what their Christmas is like. :)Warm, barbecued turkey, surfing, lager. I think that sums it up, though I'll wait for SMS to correct me on the details
Depending on ethnical background really, but heres a summary of mine, its similar to how aussies traditionally do it, but then again, its different. Then ill give a rough idea of a traditional aussie christmas.
Starts christmas eve, everybody rushing about getting humasive amounts of food ready, Turkeys, Legs of ham, prawns, fish, other italian dishes, ready to be served/cooked for christmas day. Go to church and whatnot, come home, merry christmas, lalala, go to sleep, wake up early, cook the beast of a turkey and leg of ham, plus everything else, set everything up, forward to about lunch, commence large amounts of drinking wine/other alcoholic beverages, eating enough to make you sick but still want more, endless card games consisting of the usual poker, texas hold em, then onto the italian cards playing briscola, scoppa, bestia, then desert, more alcohol, etc, then everyone leaves around 11/12ish that night.
Then Boxing Day, clean up everything and head to the beach for lunch.
Of course, that story changes if we decide to make pizza in the woodfire oven.
As for a traditional Aussie christmas, im assuming its set out the same with the food and whatnot, just remove lots of wine and replace it with 'lots of beer', lots of prawns, a huge game of backyard cricket/soccer/football/whatever sport you can think of, and the day flows on from there. Usually ends up at the beach the next day as well, or passed out.
