Australia is a nation of easy going, layback people who enjoy life, good food, good wine & beer and  of course music. As we live in the southern hemisphere Christmas is in the middle of our Summer. So instead of rugging up in warm clothes and roasting chestnuts over an open fireplace we have barbecues and go swimming.

For an Australian Christmas we still of course, have  Santa Claus, Christmas Trees with all the decorations and a Christmas Feast. However, at our home, the turkey, ham, beef & lamb is usually served cold,  with salads and prawns. Trifle, pavlova and Christmas pudding, served cold with cream and  custard, usually finish off the meal. Some people also have "Christmas in July"  so a  traditional hot feast can be  enjoyed, in the colder months....but this does not substitute for the Christian celebration held on 25  December every year....it is more a fun thing, just an excuse to indulge in yet another feast in the middle of the year!

As for the Christmas music in Australia, the Traditional Christmas Carols, and winter Christmas songs are still played here and Carols by Candlelight are common in most Australian communities. The Sydney "Carols in the  Domain" and  the Melbourne "Myer Music Bowl Carols"  are televised across the nation. Christmas music can be heard in shopping centres and schools for weeks prior to Christmas.

Aussie Christmas songs have been written to convey our typical Christmas. With new words for Jingle Bells, Six White Boomers, instead of reindeer and my favourite "The Christmas Photo" really do portray what Christmas is like in our wonderful country. Here I have provided, for your enjoyment, a selection of Aussie Christmas songs and some traditional songs by Australian artists.   Many of the lyrics I have transcribed myself so if any are incorrect please forgive me and indeed inform me of the correct lyrics so I can amend them.

I hope you enjoy the music and Merry Christmas to you all.

An Aussie Bush Christmas

Maurie Fields

 

Lyrics
Dashing through the bush
In a rusty Holden Ute
Kicking up the dust
Esky in the boot
Kelpie by my side
Singing Christmas songs
Its summer time and I am in
My singlet, shorts and thongs

Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells

On a scorching summer's day

Oh what fun it is to ride
In a rusty Holden Ute

There Are No Lights On Our Christmas Tree

Engine's getting hot
Dodge the kangaroos
Swaggy climbs aboard
He is welcome too
All the family is there
Sitting by the pool
Christmas day, the Aussie way
By the barbecule!

Chorus

 

Jingle Bells

Come the afternoon
Grandpa has a doze
The kids and Uncle Bruce
Are swimming in their clothes
The time comes round to go
We take a family snap
Then pack the car and all shoot through
Before the washing up
