Christmas in Australia is an annual tradition like most countries in the Northern Hemisphere except that it takes place during summer. While Christmas is a religious event among Christians, its celebration is more a cultural festival that brings family and friends together.
The Christmas holidays begin about mid December when most children and students finish the school year. Many working Australians take leave during the last week of December to coincide with the public holidays (on 25th, 26th December and the 1st January) when they can celebrate Christmas and the New Year.
In the weeks leading up to Christmas, there is a rush of activities. People decorate their homes, swap presents, go on holidays, attend church services, swim at the beach, sing carols, take photos with Santa, and watch Christmas movies. Popular movies include the ‘Nightmare before Christmas‘, ‘The Grinch‘, or the latest Hollywood blockbuster.
The excitement culminates on Christmas Day (25th December) when most people can relax, open their gifts, spend time with loved ones, and wish each other a Merry Christmas. They may enjoy a sumptuous home-made meal or a barbeque. Most shops close on Christmas Day but some restaurants and pubs are open for business often charging 10-15% extra for the public holiday.
All major retailers offer huge sales during the Christmas season. They include Aldi, Woolworths, Coles, Big W, kogan.com, COTTON:ON and more. Check their catalogues for the latest Christmas ideas and sales.
From November onwards, most shops and malls play Christmas songs and decorate their premises with fairy lights, ornaments, streamers and a Christmas tree. Departments stores and supermarkets bring their Christmas stock out for sale including trees, decorations, cards, confectionery, and other Christmas image items. Shoppers will find great discounts on popular gifts such as toys, clothes, DVDs, electronics, beauty products and homewares. Don’t miss out on the biggest shopping days of the calendar.
