Christmas in Sydney
25-th of December
While Sydney is a multicultural city, embracing people from many religions, the majority of people are Christians. For this reason, in Australia
, Christmas and Easter are declared public holidays
Christmas is that day of the year, when Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It is a festive season, with the shops and the city decorated with traditional Christmas symbols.
If you come from Europe or North America, maybe you are used to have a White Christmas with snow and low temperatures, but here in Sydney Australia
, is summer.
Traditionally Christmas in Australia
, and Sydney in particular, means Santa on a surfboard, cold drinks around the pool, BBQ
parties in bikinis, outdoor picnics, festivals
and lots of fireworks
A lot of young people, especially from England, are coming to Sydney to celebrate Christmas and New Year
on Bondi Beach
Do not forget.
The Sunday before Christmas (25th of December) there is a big event organized to celebrate Christmas, called Carols in the Domain
