Aussie Barbeque

Aussie Barbeque - Australian Christmas Carol

When the Summer sun is shining
On Australia’s happy land
Round countless fires and strange attire
You see many solemn bands
Of glum Australians watching

Their lunch go up in flames
By the smoke and smell, you can plainly tell
That it’s barby time again

Aussie 12 Days of Christmas

Aussie 12 Days of Christmas - Australian Christmas Carol

Version 1

 On the First day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
A koala in a gum tree!

  On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
2 cockatoos and a koala in a gum tree!

Ate too much for Christmas

Ate too much at Christmas - Australian Christmas Carol

I ate too much at Christmas
I ate too much at Christmas
I swore I wouldn’t do this
But I ate myself into this
And if I do get through this
I’ll never do it again

Have a Very Merry Aussie Christmas

Have a Very Merry Aussie Christmas - Australian Christmas Carol

Have a very merry Aussie Christmas
Christmas in the Sun
Playing cricket on the beach, have a boogie on your board
Its Summer just begun

Got the Barby out the back with the prawns and snags
Wave the blowies out the way
Hop on your scooter and ring that bell
Hooray its Christmas Day

Carols by Candlelight

Carols by Candlelight is one tradition that is purely Australian. It began in 1937 when a radio announcer, Norman Banks, saw an old woman singing along to Christmas carols on the radio while a lone candle burned forlornly in her window.

That time of year is here at last
Let the count begin
Time to get our Christmas tree
To welcome Santa in

They include the Aussie sense of humour, the sunshine, the surf, the sand and other uniquely Aussie oddities. I hope you enjoy them as much I love them.
