Christmas here is weird. Er, I mean different...
For starters, it's warm.
Nobody puts lights on their houses.
TV programming has NO commercials (on any station - it's not allowed).
They set fire to the christmas pudding.
When you sit down at the table your plate has a Christmas cracker (not an eating cracker, but a toy cracker present). Before eating, everyone joins hands and pops thier Christmas cracker to reveal a surprise inside. Mine had glue, which I traded for Damien's tweezers.
Boxing Day (the 26th) is a 'national statutory holiday', meaning that everyone doesn't work. And if you do, you get paid extra. Because it's a national statutory holiday.
Oh, and I think the queen needs a new stylist. During this year's Christmas message, she was wearing a lime green suit.
