An Unexpected Gift
Christmas in Australia is such a strange phenomenon for those in the northern hemisphere.
The concept of searing heat, cricket on the sand, wrapping paper sticking to sweaty skin, and cold cuts of meat with salad for Christmas lunch and dinner, is unbelievably foreign for those used to snow, mulled wine, and beanies. Here is a snapshot of an Australian Christmas on one street in a Melbourne beachside suburb during the week leading up to December 25. Please enjoy this collection about the daily unexpected gifts that life delivers, but especially those we receive at Christmas.
