We will again meet this Friday evening, even though it is getting close to New Year.
In Australia we have already celebrated Christmas, and today one of the most challenging yacht races in the world starts from Sydney harbour and will end in several days in Hobart, Tasmania. Traditionally also on “Boxing Day,” on the Melbourne Cricket Ground, a five day game of traditional “Test” cricket starts. So the day after Christmas is a very important day for Aussies. We don (put on clothes) the casual shorts, slip on and “T” shirt, slap on a hat, slop on some sunscreen, and take a picnic lunch, usually including a “truck-load” (a lot) of “stubbies” (short bottles of beer), and head for the “bush” (country) or the beach for a family day out.
So you can come and ask questions about other aspects of Aussie culture, and I want to talk about what you traditionally do over this period of New Year and Christmas.
Bring a friend, but especially a smile, some “goodies” (nice food), and join our discussion. I might even show you some cricket on the big screen!
