Honestly - I never really thought about it. I was always pretty worldly as a kid in that I understood that there was the Southern and Northern
hemispheres, and that when it was Summer here it was Winter there, that different countries and cultures have different traditions.
We have Christmas cards and Christmas cartoons, tv shows, movies, and most of them are traditional wintry scenes and don't portray what we're used to
But.. hmmm. I don't know. We have our own little traditions too. The Christmasses I grew up with were all outdoor barbecues, yes with prawns. LOL. But
I've never had a stereotypical "shrimp on the barbie". Just bought pre-cooked, peeled, devoured. Ummm, lots of water activities, dancing around under
the garden sprinklers and swimming. Drinking random cocktails, eating yummy foods, mmmm trifle!!!! and yeah, hanging around outside in the sun.
I've always wanted a Snowy Winter Christmas though; it's probably just the romance of the idea, but it seems so surreal to me and in my imagination
it's beautiful and how it should
