Christmas in Australia is hot, hot, hot. While it may be snowing in other parts of the world, it's summertime here! So with a bit of humour and a snag on the barbie, we'll sing the Aussie version of the traditional song Deck the Halls.

What the words mean

  • Wattle - Australian tree with yellow flowers
  • Gum leaves - Eucalyptus tree leaves; favourite food of koalas
  • Sundies - Sunday
  • Decos - short for decorations
  • Ripper - good
  • G'day - an Aussie hello
  • Relies - short for relatives
  • Oldies - parents, grandparents
  • Barbie - barbecue
  • Ercky - not feeling very well
