Do you dream of a White Christmas? Or at least a cold one?
Christmas in June and July parties have become popular in Australia – not just with northern hemisphere expats but also Aussies who grow up with that divide between the winter Christmases in films, songs and books and our mid-summer visits from an overheated Santa.
Do you have presents at Christmas in July parties? Not to the same extent… Secret Santas and lucky dips perhaps, especially if you want some activities and games to keep the kids busy.
It's about sharing food and dressing up. The two things that our hot Christmases discourage is the full Christmas feast and putting on something classy with more than one layer. This is your chance to indulge.
This makes it the ideal time to talk about changing the December Christmas celebration to a more sustainable low-waste celebration.
