Christmas is celebrated differently here in Australia. There is no snow, it is very hot and humid, so a lot of time is spent outdoors enjoying the sun and cooling off in a pool or at the beach. Instead of decorating ‘real’ trees, we decorated plastic, reusable ones that we bring out each year. Learn more about how Christmas is celebrated in Australia with this Christmas in Australia Mini Unit.
