We wanted to have the most traditional Australian Christmas we could have this year. I spent a lot of time asking people, "What is an Australian Christmas?" Here is what I learned:
We went to the market and got the food for Christmas lunch, including pick up sausage for the sausage sizzle, and wagyu steak, because it is cheaper in Australia.
Picked up Dad, because you have to have family!
Rented a car, and headed to friends house
At Berniece's house we had prawns and pavlova, both according to my research, Aussie Christmas musts!
Christmas morning we headed to the beach to cook steaks on the barbie, and enjoy the waves.
The sign is suppose to say "Merry Christmas." I did not account for the wind, not my smartest idea. On the way home we did stop for a bush hike. We wanted to burn a couple more calories before we ate some traditional American dinner.
Don't worry, we did not throw all American Christmas traditions out the window. We did have dressing Christmas night. We had to keep some things "homey." I did add Christmas Pudding for dessert Christmas night. There was just too many sweets people said were must haves.
We had so much fun, exploring Australian customs, and feeling like a true local. What did you do Christmas day?
