There is so much that inspires me but I must say travel is certainly at the top of the list. Having spent the past two weeks in the southern hemisphere and nine of them in Australia, I was so charmed by the architecture, the people, and the lifestyle.
I’m now fascinated with the way Australians celebrate their Christmas holiday. As you know the weather is the opposite in the States, it’s summer in Australia so their gifting and decorating is warm weather related. I never really thought about celebrating Christmas in warm weather until I witnessed it, which is yet another testament to the value of travel to opening the eyes.
Airports and tourist spots are all decorated with swags of evergreens and ornaments even with the sun shining down. Here’s a pic I snapped outside the Circular Quay as we were about to board a ferry in Sydney.
In Australia, they also decorate with pine and fir trees embellished with ornaments and twinkle lights. I bought a few Australian mags to inspire while I traveled, inside the pages I fell in love with the sophisticated light and bright styling that appeared within.
Because of the warm weather, many favor a light Christmas lunch instead of a heavy Christmas dinner followed up by a trip to the beach. Can you imagine a sunny summery Christmas? That’s how they do it Aussie style.
