Fun Facts for First Timers Celebrating a Summer Christmas

If you've never celebrated a 'Summer Christmas' before, then you are in for a treat. 

FUN WEATHER FACT: Christmas time in the Moreton Bay Region is a sun soaked affair, with an average temperature of 24 degrees. Remember this is an average so it's not unusual for the day to reach a high of over 30 degrees! It's really important you are prepared for your time in the sun. Remember to bring a hat, sunscreen and even a lightweight long sleeve shirt if you can feel your skin prickling. Remember to drink LOTS of water to stay hydrated. Sunburn and dehydration are not fun, so please be sun-smart over the Christmas holiday period.

FUN CHRISTMAS DAY FACT: You might also find it amusing that many Aussies spend Christmas Day in or near water. Family members with a swimming pool often become 'destinations of choice' for extended family members looking for a refreshing cool down mid-afternoon. It's also not unusual to discover adults reclining in a child's wading pool with a beer, wine or cocktail in hand! There's usually some good ol' Aussie ingenuity involved in keeping cool on Christmas Day. 

FUN CHRISTMAS FOOD FACT: Wondering what us Aussies eat for Christmas lunch? Well some families still celebrate with a traditional roast luncheon, however due to the heat, many choose a BBQ with cold cut ham, chicken and a feed of prawns straight from a local seafood shop. A good 'pav' (pavlova) and cheesecake are some dessert favourites. If your wanting to dip a toe into our Christmas food traditions, be sure to purchase all your food items a day or two before Christmas Day as very few food retailers (outside of local petrol stations) are open on Christmas Day.
