Can you believe the jolly fat man in the red suit is only 8 sleeps away?! I say this every year but I cannot believe how quickly the silly season seems to creep up on me. One minute I’m swilling champers at the Spring Racing Carnival and the next I’m chucking a tantrum at having to wrap so many ill-shaped presents!
We don’t even have any decorations up yet at home, aside from a few baubles, and to be honest I’m not feeling super festive which makes me sad. I’m not the only one either as a lot of people I’ve spoken too are finding it difficult to get into the spirit of Christmas. It’s not as if I’m a Grinch, it’s just that time is really getting away from me and all I’d like to do is press pause and soak up this time of year. So I thought what better way to bring a smile to your, and my, dial than to dress up? Who doesn’t dream of being one of Santa’s elves or his trusty reindeer?!
This year my sister and I are hosting Christmas lunch at our place and we’re still finishing up our not-so festive menu. We’ve decided to keep it fairly simple and forego the traditional turkey and ham etc. for something a little less time consuming. Plus, for all my northern hemisphere babes, Christmas in Oz is generally a scorcher and trying to cook anything while your house heats up is a painful experience. Hence a BBQ (perhaps a few prawns, NOT shrimp, on the barbie!) and plenty of cold beverages will be on offer.
Are you filled with the Christmas spirit or are you a little Grinch-y? What are your go to Christmas dishes? Any suggestions and new ideas are super welcomed!
