Christmas in Australia

G’day mate! (Hmmm… do Australians really say that?)

In this episode, Gracie is back and we make a delicious apple pie. Unfortunately we can’t share any of it, but you can make one with this recipe: Pro-cooking tip: Don’t forget to preheat your oven! Being the expert chef that I am, I would never do that. Heh.

Then a listener from Australia shares a Christmas memory, and I try (and fail) to list any interesting facts about the land Down Under. I do read a couple of Australia themed stories: a poem called The Aussie Night Before Christmas and then we take a trip with Australian writer Henry Lawson and his piece published in 1907 – “The Ghosts of Many Christmases”. Don’t worry it’s not a ghost story, but rather it’s a reflection on the different locations he had celebrated Christmas in his past.
