Happy Holidays in an Aussie Way

I would like to wish all my readers

a very Blessed and Joyous Holiday Season

This time of year is when families and friends gather together to celebrate the holidays and the spirit of giving is alive and well. I know my two little angels are really looking forward to Christmas morning when they can unwrap and discover new toys and gadgets, clothes and chocolates, books and movies that they have been looking forward to for months.

I received a message today that reminded me of what Christmas means to me most of all. It went something like this…

Christmas is for Love

It is for joy, for giving and sharing, for laughter,
for reuniting with family and friends, for tinsel
and brightly covered packages.

But, mostly, Christmas is for love.

What is Christmas for you?

While you think about it, here’s the Aussie version of Jingle Bells on video and lyrics are below.

Aussie Jingle Bells Lyrics

Dashing through the bush
In a rusty Holden Ute
Kicking up the dust
Esky in the boot
Kelpie by my side
Singing Christmas songs
It’s summer time and I am in
My singlet, shorts & thongs

CHORUS:
OH, JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS
JINGLE ALL THE WAY
CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA
ON A SCORCHING SUMMER’S DAY
JINGLE BELLS, JINGLE BELLS
CHRISTMAS TIME IS BEAUT
OH WHAT FUN IT IS TO RIDE
IN A RUSTY HOLDEN UTE

Engine’s getting hot
Dodge the kangaroos
Swaggy climbs aboard
He is welcome too
All the family is there
Sitting by the pool
Christmas day, the Aussie way
By the barbecue!

CHORUS

Come the afternoon
Grandpa has a doze
The kids and uncle Bruce
Are swimming in their clothes
The time comes round to go
We take a family snap
Then pack the car and all shoot through
Before the washing up

CHORUS

Wishing you all the Happiness in the World and a Prosperous New Year in 2009. Make it an awesome one!
