Let’s Celebrate Australia Day!
I’m sure most of us Aussies love nothing better than to flip on the thongs, pull out the stubbies (either shorts or beer or both), spread a little zinc across the nose and wave a flag or two (we have a few to pick from – Australian, Indigenous, Boxing Kangaroo, Eueka…) and of course fire up the barbie each January 26th to celebrate all things Australian. I know I do!
This year I’ve been fishing around for some Aussie pearls that would be great to add to anyones Australiana collection:
Also available from Australianaonline.com is this set of six wine glass charms for $44.95. Handmade in Australia from pewter and covered in gold plate with a Swarovski crystal, these charms depicting a kangaroo, wombat, koala, ringtail possum, platypus and kookaburra would make a great present for a Aussie living overseas to remind them of home.
Whatever you do remember Australia is a big wide wonderful land filled with people who have come from all parts of the globe – it doesn’t matter where we have been, whether we were born here or not, we are here now and adding to this country to make it one of the best (well I’d actually say THE best) places in the world to live.
It may be a little late to get some of these treasures to don on Saturday but I’m sure you will find something suitable in the back of the closet, around the house, or in the garage to help get you in a celebratory mood! As always, let me know some of the wonderful Australiana memorabilia you might have or would suggest we MUST get for next year.
