Fun outdoor locations for Christmas…

Yes, you have celebrate at home or some restaurant, but I’m telling my parents to do some other fun places. ones I’ve said so far are:

  • the zoo – gardens and lots to look at
  • the beach – nice sand to relax on, water to paddle or swim in…
  • some gardens – I think the Botanical Gardens in the city would be divine
  • on one of those boats that cruises along the river
  • at a children’s farm – not the most beautiful places but open and the animals would amuse the kids
  • a park – the one near my school would be good as it has playground, free BBQs and space for other games and even parking in the park but no toilets might be a problem…

Any other fun places my parents and family might agree to?

An Aussie Christmas

I think my childhood Christmases were pretty Australian.

We spent the day at my Uncle’s house every Christmas. They lived right on the beach so in between food and presents, we’d spend the day on the beach – mostly I remember playing cricket for hours on end.

It was hot, sunny and great fun!

Regardless, we had the traditional roast meal – lamb, pork and turkey I think were there most years, with loads of veggies, followed by Christmas pudding and custard and/or cream.

Present time was a bit mad, but it was controlled enough that we all watched what everyone got before the next presents were handed out – made it more fun to prolong the pleasure and enjoy everyone’s happiness at their gifts.

The day was loud and seemed to last forever, and we hated going home afterwards.
