Episode 205: Christmas, Red Bikini and BBQ
Do you dream of Christmas sitting by a log fire, or by a beautiful sunny beach ? Listen to this podcast to get both sides of the story.
Australia is known for it’s informal lifestyle and Christmas is no different. So, how does this sound to you…. Christmas on the beach with a red Santa hat, a beer and a barbecue? Well, this is how people in Sydney, Australia celebrate Christmas Day. They don’t have snow or fireside drinks but they make up for it with the typical Aussie party spirit. Listen to the podcast to find out more. The podcast was recorded via Zoom, so the sound is not always stable.
