This page is dedicated to the celebrations with the continent of Australia, (which is also the nation of australia!)
In Australia, Christmas isn't really a time to go out and play in the snow. In fact, in the season of Christmas it's in the middle of summer for this Southern Hemisphere continent country, and so most are studying for exams and the end of schooling for the year.
Also, this country also has its own version of Santa Claus, considering the fact that since its so hot downunder he might suffer some health issue, and thus the coming of 'Swag Man'. Swag man, from Santa's full red suit, wears a brown Akubra, a blue singlet and long baggy shorts. Most of the time he's said to reside in under Uluru during the winter with his merry dingoes and then at Christmas time, he gets in his jolly four-wheel drive and sets off through the country to deliver his presents.
For many Australians, however, Christmas is still a time to get together with family and friends to take part in dinners and parties. Some of the most common delectables seen includes seafood, glazed ham, cold chicken, duck or turkey, cold deli meats, pasta, salads galore, desserts of all types, fruit salad, pavlovas, ice-cream plus Christmas edibles of all varieties such as mince pies, fruit cake, shortbread, chocolates, and so on.
Keeping with the traditions of most of the country's English heritage, most Australians will attend a midnight mass, to remember the meaning of Christmas, with the birth of Jesus and the spiritual meaning of the holiday, aside from the presents and the summer time parties.
