Christmas in Sydney

December is here and with it comes Christmas and Summer. This is my 3rd Christmas down under and it still feels a bit weird not to feel cold during this season...

But there's nothing like a night walk in Sydney to get me in the Christmas mood, so I headed to the city on Saturday night. There's just so much to do and see at this time of the year!
You can't miss the David Jones' Christmas windows, with animated puppets and music, for the delight of kids and grown ups.

Every evening, after sunset, you can enjoy spectacular light projections in Town Hall's facade on George Street.
From December 12, "The Lights of Christmas" show will bring St Mary's Cathedral to life and gather thousands of viewers right up to Christmas night. This is my favourite Christmas show and one not to be missed!

In Martin Place, you'll find the traditional Christmas tree, but this year with a twist. You can text a message to the interactive tree and it will be displayed along a special LED ribbon, with words travelling up the branches for everyone to see.

There's also the colossal Swarovski Christmas Tree in the iconic Queen Victoria Building, spanning three floors and holding over 144,000 sparkling Swarovski crystal ornaments and 60,000 twinkling lights. It's truly a sight to be seen.

And because no celebration would be complete without fireworks, you'll find them every Saturday until Christmas, at 9 pm in Darling Harbour!
