9 uniquely Australian Christmas cards

I love Christmas. Down here in Australia we celebrate it a lot differently than your ‘typical’ white Christmas. Instead of snow, reindeers and sledding we have scorching hot weather, kangaroos pulling Santa’s sled and fun in the backyard pool.

I think these cards typify what Christmas is like down here. They are relaxed, laid-back and they celebrate our uniqueness.
