10 Christmas cards with an Aussie twist

It’s only 5 weeks until Christmas!

Christmas is my favourite time of year. As soon as the stores hang up their tinsel and fairy lights I start playing my Christmas playlist and start unpacking our Christmas decorations.

The way we celebrate Christmas is so very different than our friends in the northern hemisphere. It is generally hot, we spend a lot of time in the pool and we chow down on cold meats, salad and a big ‘ole pavlova.

As our experience is different it always seems a little weird to send cards depicting a white Christmas with snowmen and snowflakes and…well…snow! So I’ve tracked down a few Aussie Christmas cards that depict a Christmas down under. Enjoy!

Ohhhhhhh dear. I’ve had so many problems with the site over the last two weeks. I won’t say anything more lest I jinx myself.

Instead I’ll direct your attention to this.
