We love a snowflake or sleigh as much as the next person during the Christmas holidays; it’s just that they don’t feel very… Australian.
Be honest, when was the last time you sat by a roaring fire on Christmas morning with a cup of hot chocolate in hand, all rugged up in a blanket?
For most Australians, Christmas consists of unwrapping new beach toys, showing off your new swimsuit by the pool, or putting together a new bike in the sweltering heat.
So shouldn’t your holiday decor should reflect that too?
Get into the spirit with these Australian Christmas decorations…
