Hey everyone!

It’s been a little bit since I last posted. I’ve been super busy with my newest job. For the last almost six months I’ve been writing for the Australian Over 50s Living & Lifestyle Guide – and for the last almost three months I’ve also been the Assistant to the Editor and Assistant to the Publisher.

Not only is it an entertaining read, but is very informative. You can find copies of the guidebook for FREE in a large range of pharmacies, doctors offices, and other businesses.

Check out the links below and give us a read.

DAY 8. Share a local Christmas tradition in your town or country

As far as I know, there aren’t any real differences to how our local community celebrates Christmas. Unfortunately, while a lot of people celebrate it, they don’t seem to acknowledge the true meaning of the day.
In the preceding weeks, there are numerous big-scale Christmas carol events, with Australian singers belting out the tunes (that too becoming less about Jesus and more about Santa and snow).
There are also tours to decorated houses. Some families spend thousands of dollars on Christmas lights and decorations, putting their name in to let people know to come by and take some photos. My family went out looking at them when I was younger, but year after year we were faced with calamities (getting lost, flat tyre, car breaking down, sister getting her hand shut and locked in the car door so spending hours at the emergency room – all of these on different years), so we stopped.
Hopefully more people will let Jesus into their lives and we can have a big Jesus-centred tradition nearby.
What are the local Christmas traditions in your town or country? Let me know below, or start your own 12 Days of Christmas Blogging Challenge.
