As a native-born Aussie, I love receiving books and treats from my family / friends in Oz. We moved to America (permanently) when I was nine years old. I continue to stay in touch with friends from my childhood and with a cousin that I adore.
On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
a kookaburra up a gum tree.
four cuddling koalas
three little penguins
two pink galahs
and a kookaburra up a gum tree
Shake a leg, love,
Sheila Claus said.
Time to get ready
for the big night ahead.
The chooks need some tucker,
my tum’s rumblin’ too;
I need help baggin prezzies,
then we’ll sort out those ‘roos.
We children were snuggled up safe in our beds,
While dreams of pavlova danced ’round in our heads;
And Mum in her nightie, and Dad in his shorts,
Had just settled down to watch TV sports.
Merry Christmas to all, and goodonya, mates!
