What’s the biggest difference between Christmas in Australia and in the United States?

The weather. It’s summer in Australia now, so it’s much hotter. A couple years ago it was 100 degrees on Christmas Day there.

Do they celebrate the holiday the same way?

Pretty much. Everyone decorates their houses for Christmas. My family puts decorations up in Australia, but I don’t do much here.

What’s the best Christmas present you received?

That’s a tough one. I’ve gotten so many great Christmas presents over the years that I can’t pick just one.
