Christmas in July

December 25th, Christmas Day, is pretty much slap bang in the middle of the Aussie Summer.

The high temperatures see families focus on salads and BBQ's because it is just too hot to get enthusiastic by roast turkey and all the trimmings, especially the prep and cooking of it.

However, the canny Aussies enjoy a traditional Christmas dinner just like the rest of us!

So many Aussie's have opted to do Christmas dinner in July instead, which is in the middle of their winter.

Today we decided to do Christmas in July, but guess what? The weather turned out to be so warm that it really didn't feel right to go the whole hog (or turkey) either, not even in "Winter"!

So we did a bit of a half way house!

Hubster was delighted with his sewing kit in his Christmas Cracker, can't you tell?

The jokes were equally as awful, "What lies in a pram and wobbles?"


Happy Christmas in July!
