While we celebrated Christmas in Jersey, Australian influence was seen in the details.
From reindeer sightings, or wait… are those kangaroos?
to a glass ornament hanging on our tree,
to Aussie Jingle Bells by Colin Buchanan,
“Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
Christmas in Australia on a scorching summer’s day, hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut!
Oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden Ute.”
to Ina Garten’s brownie pudding as an homage to traditional, Aussie Christmas pudding and to playing with Colin’s new caaahs Australia has left its mark. Colin will also learn to ride a bike the Aussie way, with a balance bike found online in the States.
We wish you and yours a delightful holiday season.
