Christmas in Australia/オーストラリアのクリスマス

Hi everyone! Merry Christmas!

Christmas is quite different in Australia than it is in Japan. It is a traditional holiday that is usually spent with your family. People exchange gifts and often have a large lunch or dinner together. Foods that we usually eat include roast meat or vegetables, and desserts like Pavlova. Pavlova is a dessert made of meringue and fruit that was invented in Australia.

There are often also Christmas light displays and some people decorate their houses as well. We also listen to Christmas music.

Christmas in Australia is unique, because it is summer in December! Sometimes we have outdoor barbecues and go to the beach.
