    There is something incredibly unique and very special about an Aussie Christmas that is, well, really Australian. While most of the world are rugged up drinking eggnog we are stripping down with an icy cold beer in hand….

    Christmas here in Oz means summer in every sense of the word.  It is that time of year when our children forge their childhood memories and create traditions that play out before us like an old movie, one that we have watched a million times yet can’t exactly remember. It’s the sound of cicadas rising in chorus as we hit the road driving through the Aussie bush, caravan in tow, head out the window.

    It’s also the time when we get to appreciate the people we love the most and that includes this crazy lot, the Blakey family, who featured recently in Sunday Life Magazine sharing what Christmas means to them.
