Australian Xmas Songs (Fun Video)

These Xmas songs are rather funny, if there are any words your not sure of please feel free to ask about them in comments. I will be posting more Aussie Xmas music next week, meanwhile, Sit back and enjoy.

P.S.

  • A thong is not underwear, I think a lot of people know them as flip flops.
  • Shoot through means Take off in a bit of a hurry.
  • Billabong is a section of water that is cut off from a river, usually dry, but fills in the wet season.

  1. I cracked up at your thong vs. flip flop explanation!

    Nice one. Like it a lot.

    In Canada, they were always “thongs” as well. It was the neighbours to the south who got their thongs in a knot over the word!

    Loved these Aussie carols…what a great treat to hear something different and with great humour.

    Thanks, Mags.

      Hi souldipper,
      Yes you have to laugh how the word thongs can mean 2 different things. πŸ™‚
      There are a few Aussie Xmas songs around, all have a bit of humour in them.

    Maybe you heard the Aussie Christmas song from way back …. Rolf Harris ‘Six White Boomers’.

    Story was; after he had delivered the presents in Europe, Santa unhitched his reindeer, and hitched six white kangaroos to the sleigh to deliver presents to Australia.

    And, it took my little daughter to spot the mistake, and point out … surely, he’d deliver to Australia first, because of the time difference! πŸ˜€

      Hi travelrat,
      Yes I will be posting “Six White Boomers” next week with some Xmas lights that match the song. The Rolf Harris song is the best known I think in other Countries.
      Santa does say in the song “Six White Boomers” that they were there (in OZ) last night and this is an extra run, when I put the video up next week have another listen. πŸ™‚

    Love the Aussie Christmas Carols. Bucko and Champs always get a run in our household at this time of year,

  6. What fun songs. I kept them running in a loop because we are decorating the tree and this seemed fitting background music to go along with the great Aussie wine we are sipping at this moment. Can’t wait to hear more.

    Loved it, Mags! πŸ™‚ …and now I’m a little bit more knowledgeable too [thongs/flip-flops] πŸ™‚

    Brilliant!

  9. aFrankAngle says:

    LOL .. good stuff … like the top one the best. Since I can’t imagine Christmas in summer, I guess you can’t imagine it in cold weather. πŸ™‚

    You’re doing a great job spreading Australian culture across the world, Mags. Keep up the good work!

  11. It’s hard to imagine Christmas in the heat and long days of the summer! Enjoyed these videos. πŸ™‚ Loved the picture of the ornament with a kangaroo on it in the first one!!

      Hi Barbara,
      I of course have never known Christmas any other way but usually a very hot summers day with the tropical storm in the late afternoon. πŸ™‚

  12. dearrosie says:

    Oooh I loved the videos – you Ozzies have such a great sense of humour.
    I also didn’t know that thongs are flip-flops. What do you call thongs?

    • magsx2 says:

      Hi dearrosie,
      I’m so glad you liked the videos, I was sure a lot of people wouldn’t know too much about Australian Christmas songs, and Oh yes always the humour. πŸ™‚

      They are only known as thongs here in OZ, I know some people in America call them flip flops, and in New Zealand they are known as jandals, flip flops seem to be the more common name rather than thongs.

    I love the rusty Holden ute one. We sing it every year. One of my favourites!
