Christmas in Sydney! This Weekend! 16 DEC 2006

dsc01305.JPG It is hot and steamy and yes it is Christmas time in the land down under. Personally I think OZ should rally and start all of it’s own holidays since none of the traditional ones make sense here. But Hey- it is a chance to party! December is loaded with Christmas parties and events, but one of the biggest is this weekend in The Domain. Located right in the middle of Sydney CBD, The Domain is a massive park and home to the much loved Carols in the Domain.

Thousands and thousands of people roll out the picnic blankets and settle in for a day and night of Christmas revelry. If you are in Sydney I highly sugggest you attend this event. Free to the public, it begins at noon with food booths and entertainment all day. The real entertainment though, starts when the sun goes down. Everyone lights candles and sings along as the major stars perform live. Last year we had David Hasselhoff! (You had to see it to believe it.)

Do get there early if you care about decent seating. The Salvation Army sells goodie bags complete with candles to help raise funds for it’s activities. Bring bug repellant, food and bevvies (beverages) to keep yourself happy, and your best Christmas hat/outfit. This event is broadcast live all over Australia on Channel 7. I do have to say- it is pretty cool to be at an event that the whole rest of the nation has to watch on TV. Worth doing.dsc01330-1.JPG
