I love Christmas time. I love it even more as my children get older and want to get in on the fun… what I don’t love is the rampant consumerism or the fact that both Naomi and Leia’s birthdays are that very same week… yes… poor planning on my part there!! This is a spending time of the year for us! Anyways, since we’ve been listening to Christmas music on the radio since Veteran’s Day around here, I found choosing the music for todays meme to be quite easy!
Since the entire next month is about Christmas songs, I am going to share Australian Christmas song today!
First off, one I bet hardly anyone who lives out my wonderful home country has heard….
Six White Boomers!
Next a personal favourite of mine – since as the write up says, there’s no point in singing about snow and mistletoe is Australia… well unless you are in Tasmania, but that’s a completely different story for another day.
The Three Drovers
I love this one… it’s so pretty and delicate!! (If you can call a song delicate!)
Now… enough of the serious. As a culture, Australian love to tease about thing, we all have a great sense of humour and rarely take things seriously… sooo in that vein… I bring you a collection of very silly Australian Christmas songs! Enjoy!
Christmas in Australia
Australian Jingle Bells
Australian 12 Days of Christmas (Sorry about the crappy video and audio on this one!)
