Can you be too old for advent calendars, I mean, like, reaaally?
*Intro*
Hey guys, it's Sarah and if you haven't noticed by the explosion of vlogmas videos all over YouTube, it is Christmas time.
You may be wondering why I'm not bundled up in an ugly Christmas sweater and I'm wearing a singlet top because ugly Christmas sweaters is what Christmas is all about, isn't it?
Well while all of you in the US and the UK and wherever you live are having your nice white Christmases and winter wonderlands down here in Australia, we are dying of heatstroke.
Christmas in Australia is a very different experience, believe me.
Now firstly, while it's winter in most Western countries, it is very, very much summer here.
Which means Christmas Day goes kinda like this:
Nup, can't stand this anymore, it's too hot.
- Merry Christmas. - Meeeerry Christmas.
And Christmas songs make no sense here in Summer!
First off, Frosty the Snowman would be a puddle of water.
"A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight, walking in a winter wonderland."
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas alright because it's NEVER going to happen down here!
And we actually have our own Australian Christmas carols, believe it or not, and they are as ridiculous as you think they will be.
"Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut, oh what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden ute." ...yep.
And I really feel for shopping centre Santas over here because honestly, in that bulky Santa costume, it would be so hot!
And it honestly sits at around 30 degrees celsius which is this in fahrenheit and it's SO hot!
Now when I think of Christmas drinks, I think of hot chocolate, where here, you'd be hard pressed not to find an Australian drinking an ice cold beer to keep them cool.
What else do we do to cool us down on Christmas Day?
We go swimming.
Yes, swimming in December sounds ridiculous to half of you, I know.
Except don't go swimming in the ocean... because it's jellyfish season.
Now I don't know what you guys do for Christmas dinners and lunches and stuff up there, but here, we legitimately put a shrimp on the barbie.
Except it's not a shrimp, it's a prawn guys, it's not shrimp.
And these guys, these stupid bugs! This is how you know it's Christmas time because these guys are flying into your face at night!
And once Christmas is all done and dusted, the day after we have our good old tradition of Boxing Day sales,
which is like our version of Black Friday, except less screaming and shoving, and shittier discounts.
Yeah so that's Christmas in Australia, I just find it so hard to relate to all of your winter Christmases and I just wish I could have a winter Christmas once in my life.
And if you liked this video, it would make my day if you subscribed to my channel, I am trying to hit 500 by the end of 2015, probably won't happen but it's nice to dream.
And if you're watching this before Christmas Day, I hope you a very merry Christmas. Bye!
*Outro* Now we're discussing the portrayal of YouTube in the media.
And now the first question is, how do you think the media perceives YouTube?
Anyone above my generation, they don't seem to really get it...
