Christmas occurs during our summer. So most of us take a casual attitude (and attire) to the typical Christmas family gathering for dinner. You'll find us cooking on the barbecue, ham, beef and lamb as well as prawns. It's accompanied by a variety of cold salads followed after dinner with traditional trifle and pavlova to round out the meal. And if you're not careful, you may be the one who gets thrown in the family pool.

 

John Williamson has released over 30 albums and received over 20 Golden Guitar Awards at the CMAA (Country Music Awards of Australia)
at the annual Tamworth Country Music Festival.

It's December in Australia;
Time to remember all the family.
Christmas tree native pine,
Lights and tinsel all entwined.
Put a fairy on the top.
There's Gran and Pa and Joan and Pop.
The ham and turkey's organised.
Won't the grandkids be surprised
When Santa comes in big black boots
In the back of Jacko's ute ...
Ho Ho Ho! Ho Ho Ho!

It's December in Australia;
Time to remember all the family.
Gather round for a photo.

Hang on, Dad, where did Sam go?
We gotta get everyone in the picture ...
Oh here he is. C'mon, Sam,
Now say "Cheese".
Wait a minute Bubbles is missing.

Oh, yum yum, pig's bum Christmas Pudding.
All the ladies do the cooking.
All the men are really slack,
Slapping each other on the back.
"How ya been Tangles? How was your year?
Might rain tomorrow. Have a cold beer.
I hear young Greg is playing fullback.
I guess he gets it all from you, Jack"
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!!
Who's for a game of cricket?

It's December in Australia;
Time to remember all the family.
Gather round for a photo.

Hang on, Dad, where did Cher go?
We gotta get everyone in the picture...
Oh here she is. C'mon, Cher,
Now say "Cheese".
Wait a minute Annie's not here.

Ah me, not out. Oh yes you are, Nick.
It's your bowl, Max, don't bowl too quick.
Aw, Nick has run of with the bat.
After him across the flat.
C'mon, Cub, you've had a bowl.
Give the ball to Christie.
Tom-tit, Peewee, Brookie, Sidekick,
You're on my side. Grab the bat quick.
Now he's run off with the stump.
Better give that Nick a thump.
Think I'll have another beer, runt.

Oh, it's December in Australia;
Time to remember all the family.
Gather round for a photo.

Hang on, Dad, where did Ami go?
We gotta get everyone in the picture ...
Oh here she is. C'mon, Ami,
Now- say "Cheese".
oh, Wait a minute Heddi's not here.

See the goanna up the gum tree?
He's gonna get a feed today, free,
When the campers leave the lake.
Bits of chook and christmas cake.
It's Christmas time for him as well.
See his big long belly swell.
Heh heh heh heh heh!

It's December in Australia;
Time to remember all the family.
Gather round for a photo.

Hang on, Dad, where did Fox go?
We gotta get everyone in the picture ...
Oh here she is. C'mon, Fox,
Now say "Cheese".
Hold it there now ...
